Clerics

Spell Preparation & Casting

Each morning a Cleric prays to the gods for guidance and judgment, for protection from various ills, and for succor—if ill befalls them regardless. This manifests as a list of spells that the Cleric has prepared. These always include the deity’s favored spells and a number (see the chart below) picked by the player from all Cleric spells of the available levels. The Cleric is then warranted by faith and service a number of spells they may cast per day. A Cleric warranted a high level spell may also use this to cast lower level spells.

Petitioning Divine Aid

As part of the action of spell casting (and when petitioning aid, a Cleric may need to extend this action over several rounds) the Cleric may sacrifice one of their prepared spells to invoke unprepared or unwarranted spells from the gods. This grants 1d6 Aid points to the attempted spell, plus wis modifier and the level of the forfeited spell. Aid point costs are:

If the Cleric runs out of spells to forfeit before acquiring enough Aid points, the spell fails. If a Cleric has no spells prepared after casting, they must roll on the Rebuke table for their deity.
