Cleric - Traits

As a cleric you serve a demihuman. For one reason or another you choose a life of service. It may have been out of obligation, or maybe because you wanted to do good. Some even take this path to gain power.

Cleric - Specialty

Skill Proficiencies: Persuasion, Religion
Languages: Celestial, Infernal
Equipment: Religious Tome, a set of vestments (clothes), and a coin pouch containing 15 GP.


The two edged sword of being the go between with demihumans, it is ALWAYS your fault. When the crops are strong and vibrant it is great that you appeased the demihumans and brought the bounty. Unfortunately when plague travels through the city it is also your fault for not making pleasing enough sacrifices. Your life has been one of feast and famine.
