Thinking up a new name is one of the problems I am currently having ;)

And Yes, the guidelines for purity gain would have to be very different,

and probably different for each deity.

Indeed. I think there are some things that all priests can try and do,

although some may be better at it than others, and also some things that

are specific to the worshippers of each deity.

I`m working on this as well. I`ve yet to get something I am entirely

happy with, but it is for the most part functional.

It will almost certainly be based on the level or "ritual support" and

not so much on the cleric`s personal might.

When (if?) it all comes together it will -most likely- be set in Anuire.

I`ve had thoughts about France, but Anuire is a lot more easy to set up

and keep track of than France ;)
