Priesthood
There are many in the world who feel the presence of one or more gods more keenly than others. These men and women often become priests or monks, spending thier lives in temples preaching or healing. Of these men and women, a few stand out as shining examples of their god. These people are given special powers and are guided to ever greater deeds by their god and its servents

In order to become a priest one must take an additional flaw, but not the plus two stat bonus that comes with it. Some proesthoods have additional prerequisites to enter. Each priesthood has its own unique benifits, usually in the form of stances and spells avalable to it. Usually these spells or stances can only be used by someone capable of learning them. They are not bonus stances or spells, but insteadare just added to the spells that they could learn
