The Chosen

The Chosen are the final authorities on Gaeleth for disputes within the churches. They are considered the direct representative of each patron deity, and so their word is law within the church. To become a Chosen, a member of the church must first be a Disciple of that patron deity. Once a Chosen steps down, he retains all his faith-granted powers, but he can never again return to the position of Chosen within the hierarchy of his church.

    *When a PC or NPC rises to be the Chosen of a deity, strip all template abilities of the Disciple before appending the Chosen template abilities. The SR's, Ability bonuses, Saves and the like to not stack with being a Chosen.

    Like all prayer-casters on Gaeleth, the Chosen do not have to memorize spells. They cast whatever spells they choose, based off of their available spell slots per day, whenever they choose. Prayer-casting is exhausted every twenty-four hours, and the ability to cast again each day is based off of a time dictated by the Church, be it midnight or dawn or the like. (See the House Rules.)
