P is for Preacher

Religion is an important aspect in the lives of most natives. Holy folks of the region are known as preachers. Speaking for the gods, they often serve as leaders and are not as highly trained for combat as their eastern counterparts in the rest of the kingdom.

Any character from the Portsmaw region may choose the Preacher variant of cleric.

A speaker for the old time religion.

  1. This is great! I love me a good new class or variant, and this is a little tweak that fits the setting really nicely.
