8.7 THE POSITION OF HOUSE PATRON

A House Patron is a God who has been asked by a House to watch over them and,
if they request, provide guidance to the House. Further, a House may need a
Patron to protect them from the machinations of Gods of different ideals.
The Divine Patron also acts as the voice of the House in the Garden. The 
formal choosing of the House Patron is the sole province of the House Lord
or Lady, though of course the wishes of the House as a whole shouldn't be
ignored.

HELP HOUSE <house shortname> will display the patron of that House.
