Sponsorship in Chelémbian society
I wonder if some more details could be given about the nature of the relationship between a sponsoring clan and the recipient, particularly in Chélemby's towns and in the capital, where the sponsoring clan is not the local government.
For example, would a sponsored craftsman be obliged to deal only with the clan and its allies? What percentage of his profits would be paid to the clan? If he ran into financial difficulty, would the clan bail him out? If sponsorship is withdrawn is it then illegal for him to operate his business?
And then what about a religious institution such as the temple of Peoni, which is sponsored by a number of clans? Would the temple have greater or lesser autonomy as a result of sponsorship being spread over more than one clan?
I hope that is not too many questions.
