Atlantean Priest

The following Package Deals cover the gamut of ‘Primary’ (Active) Atlantean priests. In addition to the skills and learning which are common to all priests, a priest has special abilities granted to him by the god they primarily worship:

Ares: Priests of Ares are expected to train as soldiers, to learn the use of weapons, and to become skilled in battle. They often accompany the Atlantean army to war.

Astranar: Priests of Astranar have the power to control the weather to a limited degree. It takes 20 minutes of intense concentration to begin the process. Once the spell has been cast, the weather slowly alters to the desired state in 1d6 hours. It remains like that for another 1d6 hours and then returns to what it was like before the priest changed it in 1d6 x 10 minutes.

Eordica: Priestesses of Eordica have the power to make a person, animal, or plant more fertile for a short period. This doesn’t guarantee conception or enhanced growth, but it definitely makes it more likely.

Erestaia: Priestesses of Erestaia are skilled at the domestic arts. Wealthy families often hire them to look after the children.

Helios: Priests of Helios can create light, bringing the god’s power into dark places. They are also handsome and have a powerful speaking voice.

Orikailos: Priests of Orikailos are almost always wizards as well, and the god has gifted them with a particular skill for spellcasting.

Phestos: Priests of Phestos are skilled craftsmen, particularly at the forge.

Poseidon: Priests of Poseidon are capable of breathing water, and can even extend this power to other people for short periods.

Selene: The beautiful Priestesses of Selene can also create light, and though their light is softer and dimmer, and they can create it at range if desired.

Tikarion: Priests of Tikarion are known for their impressive demeanour, leadership skills, and insight.
