The Church

Overview

There are many gods within the world, some good, some evil, some powerful and some weak. Each gods' power waxes and wanes according to the number and quality of their worshippers. By the use of prayers and rituals priests can invoke the will of their god. Adventuring priests tend to be the zealous missionary type out to convert and do the more dangerous wills of their god. They generally do not learn the rituals as these are long winded affairs that do not suit their temperament.

They also tend to favour the arms and armourment of their god. As they rise in power their god will grant them more powerful prayers as well as special protection or other powers.

Priests gain extra powers by praying and dedicating both time and spirit (read hero points). The prayers granted depend upon many things including the devotedness of the cleric, hero points sacrificed, time spent in prayer and deeds performed. In general in can be said that a god will grant about 2 prayer levels for every hero point sacrificed and day spent in contemplation.

Most priests gain the ability turn away or destroy undead creatures by focusing the power of their god through their holy symbol.

Clerical power points cost 1 hero point each. When each one is gained there is a chance that an additional one may also be gained. A roll against wisdom with a difficulty of 12 is required.

The abilities of the priests depends upon the god they chose.

All priests tithe a minimum 10% of all income to their sanctuary or other worthy causes, additional tithes may be rewarded by their god with extra spells or other abilities.

Priests will start knowing 6 of their 1st level prayers. When training, a priest will be taught all prayers of 3 levels lower than their faith. Normally when a priest has trained an additional half of the prayers for a given level their god will invite them to train for the next level.

Prayers

The prayers available depend upon the characters faith (which dictates actions) and the sacrifices made in hero points.

In order to be able to use a prayer level their faith bonus must at least equal the prayer level. At medium and high levels for each increase in faith level it is likely that the god will require a minor quest in addition to the hero points normally associated with a rise in training level. Between raises in faith the god will grant additional spells in return for hero point sacrifice. Generally this takes the form of 2 levels of spells granted per training point.

Each training point sacrificed to the god increases the overall power of the god. Some of these the god will use in a general cause and some are redistributed to priests in need. It is not unknown for the faithful in need who cry out to be granted extra hero points.

Priests will generally need to know 1/2 +1 of the god's spells at a given level before they will be allowed to progress to the next level.

Additional prayers may be gained by donating monety to the gods' causes, temple upkeep... Gods like people who give them stuff better that others, they are in it for themselves after all. Priests are never granted prayers of their highest level by donations these only fill in the gaps of lower levels.

The gods always get to choose which prayers are granted. Expect to pay (donate) roughly 100g per prayer level.

Priests cannot take radient damage from other priests of their own god and have RESISTANCE to other radient (not necrotic which is almost teh same but from the god of Death but is a direct opposite like fire and ice).

Divine Prayers

A target can only be under the effects of one "Divine" prayer at a time from any god. The highest level (then most recently cast) prayer will replace any previous divine prayer.

Divine prayers cannot affect priests of different gods.

Rituals

Rituals are prayers that take a substantial time (5-30 minutes) to perform but do not require any power, though they may require components depending upon the effect desired.

Each minor ritual (2 levels below your faith) may be performed once per day for free but only one major ritual may be performed on any day as you need to focus and calm your mind. Minor rituals may also be cast as prayers of equivalent level using power points as normal.

Turning undead

Turning undead is related to prayers in that you are calling upon the power of your god to demolish the creatures of the night. A roll against faith determines the number and type of undead that are turned. The ability to turn is not automatically granted to everybody with faith, it is a god given ability that is bestowed along with the prayers. Priests can only turn undead that are in their line of sight and are approaching or aware of them. The effect lasts continuously as long as the symbol is presented.

Rough grouping sizes are as follows but it also depends upon the individual strengths of the creatures:

Undead Difficulty Vampire Wraith
Mummy
Ghast Wight Ghoul Zombie / Skeleton
Difficulty   18 17 16 15 14 13 12
Few - 1 1 1 1-2 1-3 1-4 1-5
Group +1 2-3 2-4 2-4 3-6 4-9 5-12 6-15
Pack +2 4-6 5-7 5-8 7-12 10-18 13-24 16-30
Horde +3 7+ 8+ 9+ 13+ 19+ 25+ 31+

Repulsion Distance

The stronger the undead the fewer that may be held back and the closer they can approach. A skill roll is made which keeps the creatures at bay whilst the holy symbol is strongly presented. Standard repulsion distance is 5' radius (10' diameter) and each success level above or below adds (or subtracts) 5' to the diameter.

4' diameter is enough for the priest to swivel, 10' diameter enough for party members to huddle around in a ring if not attacking, to attack they need more depending upon their weapon.

When turned the creatures recoil away from the symbol and growl. They do not run away and hide in a corner turning their backs on you. If forced to within striking range (or a party member stands too close, e.g. close enough to hit them) they may attack but at a penalty of -2.

Angle of repulsion

Creatures approaching from multiple sides require the priest to swivel, this is not a full second action so it only suffers -1 per additional angle..

Undead are repelled for an angle of between 120 and 180 degrees depending upon the circumstances, in a normal corridor the whole corridor will be blocked, but in the open up to 3 groups may attack.

If attacked from multiple sides the priest needs 5' to swivel, colleagues will therefore be within striking distance (though at -2)

Multiple creatures

There is strength in numbers. Each group size increaes the difficulty by 1. (The definition of the sizes is deliberately vague and will change depending upon the circumstances and type of undead, just hope you never meet a horde of vampires).

The total size of the group is used for the difficulty regardless of direction of attack, multiple directions makes it even harder.

Mixed groups

If the group is controlled by a single creature then the difficulty for the controlled group is the difficulty of the controller. If not, then a single roll is used to determine each turning chance according to the creature type

Example

  • Desairy encounters a pack of 5 ghouls who split into 2 groups of 3 and 2 to surround the party and attack from 2 directions.
  • Ghouls require a 13 to turn; +1 for two directions and +1 because there is a group = 15
  • He rolls a 7, +3 Willpower, +4 Faith = 14 or 1 below the target.
  • The encounter distance is therefore 10' -5' = 5'
  • Swivelling continuously from side to side Desairy manages to keep them all at bay, however anybody standing next to him may be hit

Note

Note that not all creatures that appear undead necessarily are; zombies have been known to be caused by a virus and skeletons may be animated by magic (especially dragon bones) rather than necromancy. It is known that vampires are susceptible to a religous item held by a non-priest if they have any faith; though the vampires do get a saving throw to ignore the feeble attempt and the characters must have been playing a religous character (e.g. donating to the church) .

Undead attacks

Most undead have a connection to the Death Plane, this can be so strong that their mere touch drains your lifeforce sapping your physical attributes, the more powerful ones can even sap mental attributes turning you into a gibbering wreck. Fortunately there is a saving throw against the effect but in particcularly strong creatures this just reduces the draining effect.

 

Healing

Priests are the healers of the world

All priests have the Healing and Herbalism skill equal to half their faith; some gods grant stronger healing skills.

Temples

All priests are expected to tithe at least 10% of income earned outside of the church. However for this they will be given board and lodging free of charge at all temples when they are in the area. If they require training however they will be required to pay the normal fees in extra tithes.

Invoking Deity Intervention

In rare cases (normally life threatening) it may be possible to call upon the gods intervention. There is a base 1% chance per faith level.

The gods

Bahrie; goddess of the body and mind

Weapon = 1 handed bludgeon & tumbling weapons

Bahrie's mission in life is a mission of mercy. The plagues and pestilences sent by the Grim reaper are the bane of her life.

The force of the Grim reaper however is nothing compared to Orcus Demon Lord of the undead. Everything must die eventually so the Grim Reaper is tolerated however the undead are damned beyond redemption. Every opportunity must be taken to put the damned to rest and relieve the agents of Orcus of their misguided lives.

The outer courtyards provide a meeting place for youngsters wishing to lose themselves in a good yarn. Dragons soar and good triumphs as the stories unfold. Over the years many valuable scrolls of past legends are collected in the temple libraries acting as a focus point for many bards.

 

Bards perform their prayers in song either with or without an instrument

Eo (Paladins)

Weapon = Two Handed Swords (Great / Bastard) & bow.

Eo is a special case as he is the original one god and father of all other gods, he has no need for priests, he does however have a fighting arm which gain certain clerical powers as their faith grows. These are called paladins.

Paladins are a special brand of fighter/priest that have seen the light of the one god (Eo). They are the arm of this god and a law unto themselves. Few characters will defy the will of a paladin as they are held in higher esteem than any priest. Paladins really are the priests of Eo, they just don't have temples outside their sanctuaries; and mere mortals aren't allowed in. The sanctuaries are where all their training occurs, they aren't allowed out until they have become knights unless they are accompanying a knight on a journey as a squire.

Paladins are the epitome of all that is good and true, chivalry is the name of the game, maidens in distress were made for them.

They gain the following special powers from Eo depending upon their faith bonus.

Their faith may not exceed half their two handed sword skill (round down).

The other party immediately know that the agreement has been broken.

Faith +5

Lay on hands cures 3 points of each type

Faith +6

Make all saving throws at a bonus of +2

Paladins are restricted by moral and ethical codes and are not allowed to show excessive trappings of wealth.

They may own only a few magical items

  • 1 suit of armour
  • 1 Shield
  • 1 melee weapon
  • 1 ranged weapon
  • 2 other items

They retain only sufficient wealth to keep them in a modest manner and pay their expenses.

Maintain company only with characters who do good deeds.

Paladins roam the land providing justice; justice is constant and good, all miscreants should be punished according to the law once proven guilty. Eo is the backbone of society without which it would crumble back to ruins. Justice must not only be done it must be seen to be done.

Transgressors deserve the punishment they get, those who live by the sword shall die by the sword. Paladins are the final arbiters of many a quarrel, minor or major, legal or personal. In disputed cases of guilt where no other means of settlement is possible the two main methods of determining right and wrong are trial by combat (to first blood normally) and trial by fire.

To call in a Paladin is to state that the participants cannot solve the problem themselves. Many travel the land as visiting judges.

Paladins are often called upon to witness and bind participants to an agreement which has more force than any piece of paper, that is if the participants wish the law to know opf their agreement.

Grim Reaper, god of the eternal flame

Weapon = Anything

No civilisation openly worships the grim reaper so very little is known about the temple and its rites However through certain sources it has been discovered that the temples are based around a blood altar and that the sacrifices are not limited to the animal kingdom.

The priests are also known to have an unholy alliance with undead. Many sects worship various demons and devils but these all ultimately gain their power from the grim reaper.

Inanna god of war

War is honour, honour is war

Weapon = Anything

The church seeks to ensure that wars are fought honourably and prisoners treated fairly. In personal life the duel is used to settle any grievances.

The code of honour:

  1. Strength of arms should never be used against those unable to defend themselves.
  2. All fight should be fair (not 1 troll vs. 1 peasant).
  3. Weapons, armour and the skill to use them are the gifts of Inanna and should be treated with respect
  4. Surrender (save for injury) or desertion are cowardly. Withdrawal is acceptable if faced with overwhelming odds.
  5. Prisoners should be treated with the respect befitting the bravery with which they fought.
  6. Magic is shunned as not worthy of contemplation. Wizards do not make good companions.

The priesthood and the church

Each temple is based around an arena which is used for training and the yearly games. The games are presided over by the highest priest available and the combatants judged in terms of combat skill and style. Due to the frequent injuries that occur healing is always at hand.

As the priests become to old to fight they are termed elders and look after the smooth running of the temple as well as determining tactics in times of war.

In times of war many priests join the army to increase their prowess and ensure the fight is honourable.

They start with the leadership skill at +2

Loki; God of Stealth

Weapon = Small weapons (dagger, darts...)

Temples of Loki are situated in the heart of all thieves guilds and the priests rank second only to the master thief. They are often ex-thieves who through some accident have been forced to become non-active members of the guild.

Cunning, silent, a neat job and no suspicions, that is how Loki works. Why face an attack if it can be avoided, why let the treasure be divided evenly if you can get their first.

There are always plans to be devised, revenges (real or imagined) to take, jobs to case... Laws are fine for those that believe in them, however they do have a habit of getting in the way so they should be freely disregarded when inconvenient.

Priests of Loki gain the following abilities.

Weapon = Axes & hammers

Moradin rules the earth and all that it contains. He is lord of all stone and metal, looked to for guidance by miners, smiths and jewellers. The dwarfs are a special concern of Moradin due to their special relationship with mines and gold.

Temples are always constructed of the finest stone available but with a vast range of architectural styles. Some show the brute strength of stone with massive pillars, whilst others are a mass of seemingly impossible vaulted ceilings and flying buttresses. The temples are said to all be connected via a system of underground temples.

Poseidon; God of seafarers

Weapon = Thrusting weapons (Spear, javelin) & Crossbows

A capricious god who is quick to anger, rapdly turning a calm sea into a raging storm.

Technically the god of cold, water and ice however the general worshippers are the sailors and so Untamo has become known as the god of seafarers. Sailors frequently make a sacrifice to Untamo before a long journey.

Temples are as varied as the sea itself, the common factor being the many streams and fountains that wind their way through the corridors and courtyards. Many priests wander as restless as the sea searching for a new shore.

Transgressors deserve the punishment they get, those who live by the sword shall die by the sword. Tyr priests are the final arbiters of many a quarrel, minor or major, legal or personal. In disputed cases of guilt where no other means of settlement is possible the two main methods of determining right and wrong are trial by combat (to first blood normally) and trial by fire.
