What I learned playing a cleric


Recommended Posts

The "What I learned playing a..." threads from the Champions forum have proved real winners... hats off to Bloodstone for starting them up.

 

To honour and continue the tradition, here's one for everyone's favourite religious specialist, the cleric.

 

When someone laughs at you for being a softy priest, that's the moment you draw your battle hammer and reveal that, actually, you worship the God of War! :)

People will keep looking at you as a source of healing. Fine, but make sure that it isn't the only thing you offer to the party!

 

That's a good point. It gets pretty unsatisfactory pretty quickly if everyone else just looks at you as "healing on legs".

Your Clerical Staff is very important.

 

Hire the best people, treat them well, reward good work, and you will suffer from few clerical errors.

God is a McDonald's drive-thru:

 

GOD: "What can I do for you, son?"

Cleric:" Yeah, well .. I'll take two Heal Light Wounds, one Holy Word, a Blessing, two Hold Person and ... (whispering) ... what? ... Yeah, right, guys: And a Total Healng spell!"

GOD: " You wanna Turn Undead with that?"

Cleric: " Yes. Well, make that two, supersize. To-go."

GOD: "So be it!"

Yeah, but when you discover while casting that God screwed up your order and gave you two Cause Light Wounds spells, its a bit worse than finding unwanted pickles on your burger...

Find out if your new GM (or his buds) have a chip on their shoulder about organized religion before deciding to play a cleric who takes his religion seriously. If they do, dont. If you must, make your cleric so bland and agreeable that nothing offends him and he offends nobody.

I learned that Orcs might be converted' date=' if your cleric stomps their leader hard enough.[/quote']

 

Or to paraphrase... It's amazing how a little gratuitous violence can help others find their faith, if only temporarily!

 

What you then need is a holy power to "Detect believer" to weed out the deceiving non-believers from the honourable converted!
