After reading "The Iron Throne" by Simeon Hawk, my view of Divine Wrath
changed on how I let my players use it. It appeared that in the book, when
the odds were lookng real bad for Michael Roele, his Divine Wrath would
invoke. He only used it like four times through the entire book. When he
fought Lord Arwyn, who had double-crossed his family (a true example of the
way the rule book describes Divine Wrath), in the shadow world against a
ton of skeletons (his entire unit of fighters was close to being
annilated), maybe once more in a battle (not for sure), and then versus the
Gorgon (who of course killed his wife). I allow my players to invoke DW

they encounter someone who has harmed the group or kingdom before, and
sometimes just when it seems cool or appropriate. (Divine Wrath is my
favorite power). I believe that DW is by far the most powerful for its
class (major power) and nearly the most powerful under travel, detect life
(a near god ability!), and a few other great powers. DW could have been a

I'm running a game where one of my players has this ability.
I have yet to allow him to use this ability primarily since he has
failed to Role play
a particular hatred, pursue a particular passion or what have you.
IMHO this leaves much of the work on the player to indicate to the DM
what is important
to him through Roleplaying rather than by just telling him.
If he roleplays a patriot, then when fighting foes of his kingdom...
If he roleplays a family man/woman, then when opposing those who would
harm his family...
Hope this gives some insight.
