Synonyms: Bishop, Deacon, Priest, Cleric, Abbot, Canon, Priest


Special: Archetype

Ecclesiastic is an Archetype, it is a special kind of Feat. A character can only have one Archetype in total. Apart from that, Archetypes are like normal Feats and may be taken at character creation or on any level up. On your sheet, mark Ecclesiastic as one of your Feats and add all Feats gained separately.


Description

High ranking church officials are powerful political figures in the middle age.

They will influence local politics and will manoeuvre to ascend the upper spheres of the church.

Bishops are famous and respected public figures in the middle age, with a reputation and power equalling that of noble houses. They will influence local politics and will manoeuvre to ascend the upper spheres of the church.

In the eye of commoners, Priests are the voice of god. Every week they cheer or frighten their flock during mass, and attendance is mandatory.

Canons are wealthy officials of the church, sometimes they are unordained civilians hired by the church.

Abbots are leaders of a monastery.

A Ecclesiastic (bishop) gains both the Feat Reputation and Rich.

A Ecclesiastic (priest) gains the Feat Charismatic.

A Ecclesiastic (canon) gains the Feat Rich.

A Ecclesiastic (abbot) gains Reputation or a Feat of his choice in the list of Feats granted by the Monk archetype.

A Ecclesiastic (other) gains the Feat Reputation.

If his background justifies it, he also gains the ⭐ Faith Feat (regardless of his rank).

Additionally (except if he is an Ecclesiastic (bishop)) he gains one Feat of his choice in this list :

If the character chooses the Feat Venerable Age, he only gains one additional Feat of his choice outside this list or two Feats of his choice inside this list. This is an exception to the rule, normally a character is not able to have two archetypes.

Unless his background justifies it, the character cannot take the Combat, Fighter or True Strike Feats.

Note that not all high ranking church officials have this feat and the character may de facto be a priest without having it.
