The Ecology of Priests

Greetings and Salutations.

I'm interested in the opinion of other Gloranaphiles upon this question:

Given that the number of initiates in a community indicates the support
available to a cult (in RQ3 it is indicated by the size of the religous
site), then, in Glorantha, is the important element of support "material"
or "spiritual" in nature. In other words, is it the ability of a community
to materially support a priest, or the amount of magic points sacrificed
each week by the community, the important aspect of whether or not a priest
can exist in the community.
