PhilHibbs Posted November 11, 2022 Report Share Posted November 11, 2022 (edited) It's quite possible to come out of character creation without Devotion (Deity). Pregens with it: Vasana, Yanioth, Sorala, Vostor (has it in the starter set, but not the core rule book), Aranda, Dazarim, Ionara, Mago, Makarios, Varakos. Pregens without it: Harmast, Vishi Dunn, Nathem, Narres. Pregens with neither Devotion nor Loyalty (Temple): Vishi Dunn (but he has Loyalty to his mentor). Devotion and Loyalty (Temple) are pretty important. Rune Priests have to have one or the other at 50% (easy), and rune lords need one at 90%. Does the pose a problem for Vishi Dunn becoming a priest of Waha? Does his loyalty to his mentor work here, and what happens if his mentor dies? If you know about this at character creation, then you just take Devotion or Loyalty as an optional passion. Loyalty to a specific temple is a risky choice as you might not be anywhere near that temple. If the campaign moves from Sartar to Pavis, or vice versa, and you have Loyalty to the wrong temple then that could set back your career by years. Devotion seems to me to be an essential choice at character creation, and if you're not lucky enough to come through family history with it, then definitely take it as a personal choice. Hm. Issaries doesn't have that option at the Cult step. Interesting. Quite a few of the cults don't have Devotion as an option. Odayla and Yinkin don't have either! So if you don't get it in family background, you're starting off from nowhere (60% for new passions gained during play) on your journey to Rune Lord. (Yinkin has priests instead, my mistake) Eurmal is fine. I have no problem with them having neither, although Narres has Loyalty to a temple.
