Thus far I’ve posted the Paladin, the Warlock, the Warrior classes (and Dwarf race), the Thief (and Halfling race), and the Ranger class (and Half-elf and Elf races)

Today we look at the Half-demon race and Cleric class.

God is in the TV

Rock is Dead

Description: Technology pulled from Earth also brought television.  Beings were immediately drawn to the “magic box” and many began worshiping it as some form of divine being.  Eventually the collective desires and consciousness of so many beings gave sentience to a sleek 120” television.  Flitting images (much like a music video) flood the minds of followers that pray before the screen.  Instant gratification, escapism, and consumption are common themes of the day.

Deity Represents: Distraction, Escapism, and Consumerism

Holy weapon: 20th-21st century handgun and shotgun.

Followers Dress Like: 20th-21st century Earth dwellers (or as close as they can get)

Holy Symbol: Small television jewelry (usually gem studded) on a silver chain.
Cleric Power: Static: The Cleric releases a charge of static electricity in a 15’ cone.  All targets in the area must succeed a ST or suffer 1d6+Cleric level damage and able to only take a partial action for the next 1d4 rounds.
