A priest is a specialist in using Rune magic for the benefit of
the cult members. They are representatives of their deity and
their cult forms the focus of their life. Some priests (popularly
called Rune Priests) are fully supported by the resources of
their temple (which often is treated as their own property).
Other priests are “part-time” and their activities only
partially supported by the resources of the temple. These
priests are popularly called “God-talkers,” and often support
themselves, at least in part, through a second occupation.
An adventurer can become a priest only if they meet the
requirements for acceptance. However, adventurers whose parents were priests or are priests in training use the skills
and equipment lists given below.
Nobles get +10% to any cult skill.
