Description of Clerics

Here are the descriptions for the clerics of each faith:

Painbearer of Ilmater -- Ilmater, also known as the Crying God, is the god of suffering and perserverance. Taught that enduring the suffering of others is the greatest act of sacrifice, Painbearers of Ilmater can be found wherever the weak are oppressed. Painbearers are known for their charity, humility, and their unshaking faith during even the most trying of circumstances.

Morninglord of Lathander -- Lathander the Morninglord is the god of the dawn and renewal. His priests, who share his title, can be found around the world helping communities grow and rebuild after times of trouble. Morninglords are known for their kindness and optimism.

Silverstar of Selune -- Selune is often called the Moonmaiden for her connection to the silver moon that orbits Faerun. She is the goddess of the moon and travelers. Her priests, called Silverstars, travel far and wide to help the oppressed and explore lost places. Silverstars are known for their open-minded tolerance and their hatred of bigotry.

Watcher of Helm -- Also known as He of the Unsleeping Eyes, Helm is the god of guardians. His servants, the Watchers, are always vigilant against invaders, thieves, and tricksters of all sorts. Watchers are known for their stern demeanor, loyalty, and uncompromising ethics.

Battleguard of Tempus -- The Lord of Battles, Tempus, is worshipped by warriors across the Faerun. As war can be found in almost every civilzed part of the world, so too can the Battleguard of Tempus. Battleguards fight bravely and inspire their comrades to deeds of valor. They are known for their bravery and stubborn nature.

Dreadmaster of Bane -- Also known as the Black Hand, Bane is the god of strife, hatred, and tyranny. The Dreadmasters, his priests, can be found wherever the strong and cruel prey upon the weak. They are known for their manipulative scheming and malicious attitude.

Demarch of Mask -- The Lord of Shadows, Mask, is the god of thieves and shadows. His servants, the Demarchs, often help small bands of thieves in their efforts. Many can be found as advisors in thieves' guilds. They are known for their deceptive nature and their avarice.

Stormlord of Talos -- Talos the Destroyer is the god of storms and destruction. The bane of many rangers and druids, Talos works his evil through the use of his priests, the Stormlords. Stormlords terrorize farming communities all across Faerun with threats of imminent doom if all do not appease the Destroyer. They are known for their abusive terrorism and their foolhardy nature.

Cleric Domains & Their Associated Abilities

When a character takes a level of cleric, they will be required to pick a deity from the following list: Ilmater, Lathander, Selune, Helm, Oghma, Tempus, Bane, Mask, Talos. This is their deity for all cleric levels.

Selecting a deity (reminder: which is mandatory for all clerics) is restricted by alignment. It also gives you two (2) special powers and access to domain spells. Domain spells are a special set of spells. For every cleric spell level the character can cast, he or she may cast one domain spell per day, from a list of two per spell level. These alignment restrictions, powers, and domain spells are listed below. Domain spells have been assigned arbitrary levels for the purposes of fitting into the "domain" and feel of the deity.
