Divine EntityEdit

If you've always wanted to play a character like Thor or Athena, now is your chance, although such characters could probably be similarly simulated with a cleric or something.

Making a Divine EntityEdit

Divine Entities make powerful casters, and have spells that allow them to be dangerous warriors as well. Their primary advantage, however, is their tendency to inspire awe when they wish to.

Abilities: Charisma is the only ability that affects the class abilities of the Divine Entity.

Races: Despite being a racial paragon class, this class is open to members of any race. However, in order to gain levels in Divine Entity, you must be descended from a god or character with Divine Entity, or you must have slain a deity with a CR of 8 or greater.

Alignment: Any. Divine Entities come in all stripes.

Starting Gold: 1d4×10 cp (25 cp). Divine Entities that have starting gold problems are likely to be placed in very poor families.

Starting Age: Simple or younger. Divine Entities tend to grow up fast.

Class FeaturesEdit

All of the following are class features of the Divine Entity.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Divine Entities are proficient with light armor, with shields (except tower shields), and with simple and martial weapons.

Spells: Divine Entities cast divine spells spontaneously, like a Sorcerer. Divine Entities use Charisma to determine Save DC's, bonus spell slots, and maximum spell level known. Divine Entities choose their spells from the Sorcerer, Cleric, and Druid spell lists.

Campaign InformationEdit

Playing a Divine EntityEdit

Religion: Yes, Divine Entities do tend to enjoy being worshipped.

Other Classes: Other characters of similar level are likely to be annoyed by the Divine Entity's constant showboating or attempts at being mysterious.

Combat: Divine Entities tend to be pretty good at combat, yes.

Advancement: Divine Entities tend to mostly get levels in Divine Entity, although some seem to get levels in Barbarian too, for some reason. Perhaps a prestige class is necessary to bridge the gap.

Divine Entities in the WorldEdit

In a world where few NPCs get above level 5 or so, then Divine Entities tend to quickly get to high levels and then play with mortals for their own amusement.

Daily Life: Divine Entities tend to squabble or argue for most of their waking hours, but sometimes they do something amazing instead.

Notables: Zeus, Jupiter, Thor, Ra.

Organizations: Divine Entities tend to gather in some plane or holy place that is hard for characters without magical means of transportation to reach.

NPC Reactions: NPCs tend to respect and fear Divine Entities when they know that's what they are.
