Yes. I think it's actually pretty difficult to establish a relationship with a wyter. This is a forging of a permanent relationship across the worlds. I think it's harder than giving birth (not because giving birth is easy (it is one the most difficult physical task known to humanity) but because births are common, creating a permanent link is far more rare).

So it's not a casual thing. I think it requires the right sacred place, people other than the actual members (officiating priest, supporters), lots of stuff (to set up the sacred space properly, to pay off a god talker and supporters, to sacrifice to the wyter and other protecting and helping powers), time a several-day ceremony).

Bargain, eh? :-D
