Despite the general distrust of magic in Loethe, the average citizen often trusts and welcomes those who work for the gods, provided the citizens hold those gods reverent. In nearly any city or village, almost any god servant of a good-aligned god will be welcomed. The clergy of neutral gods are often welcomed, though not as warmly or as consistently.
