Gods of the Fallen Empire

From BluWiki

The Gods, their spheres of influence, and the spells and powers they grant to their priests. The Gods and their associated Priests and Minions use the capsystem rules from The Primal Order. It is important for the priest to remember that unlike the mage or necromancer spell prerequisites do not apply. Minimum level of power investiture equal to the minimum magery for the spell is still required though. Spell colleges listed as required mean the priest must have at least 1 spell of that college for each level of power investiture that he has.

Priests often take on some of the personalities of their deity. Because of this some common advantages and disadvantages are also listed. Common powers typically granted to priests are also listed. These are guidelines only, not requirements.
