This page holds information about the elemental gods and the Heavenly Host's powers that are offered to clergy. These magics are only given to those who are favored of a deity. The powers of the now defunct Elemental Heritage is considered to be the same foundation of the elemental powers given to the Temple and favored of these deities.
Character Creation - Favored
1) Ask a Moderator (or check this page) to see if your character is a favored of any deities. If they are not, you could request the moderator to consider the option but these things are decided by the moderators and given to characters that 'fit' in personality and actions. If your character does not, it simply does not and it is not the end of the world.
2) If you are favored, read below to determine how you learned it.
3) Determine how far along your character is in powers and take 2 powers from your highest level and take 3 powers from each of the lower levels.
When someone becomes a favored it means that there is something about the personality or actions of the character that resonates with the deity.
Favored of Elemental Gods and Dragons tend to learn about their abilities through emotional trauma. The ability simply happens, at a master level for the moment of activation, and saves the character from whatever is causing the emotional issue. After the initial act, their power is at the Beginner level and they must explore their power to increase through the levels. It often takes years to gain Mastery.
Favored of Demons learn about their powers in two ways, generally. The demon offers the in the form of a contract (though the character already has the power, this is a ploy). Or the demon will activate the power in the person when they need it the least (it is inconvenient) or they need it the most (a demon still favors them and would rather they are alive). The level of this power's activation is often random and fitting for the need of the situation. Unless done by contract, the character starts with the Beginner level.
Favored of the Heavenly Host usually first start to learn of their patron in the way of dreams or a sense of interest in that angel. A desire to study the angel and gravitate to their symboloy can be the symptoms of one coming into conscious awareness of their orientation. The second common sign is to see the angel or their symbology in their dreams. If the character becomes a worshiper of the angel, they can be contacted by the angel and told they are a favored and granted Beginner level powers. Like the others, if the character requires the power to save their lives or the lives of someone they dearly love, the power can activate to get the job done and then reduce in scale to Beginner.
Some angels are less giving with their power then others. Zerachiel and Raziel do not follow the standard protocol. In many ways these two angels are more destiny based angels as they have the power and orders to watch over the mortal realm and reality itself.
Zerachiel requires the character to contact them, after noticing the signs of their divine patron and requesting an audience. The angel will interview their favored and ask for them to explain what they want the power for before granting it. At times, if the character needs the power for destiny reasons or to retain their sense of self, Zerachiel will temporarily give them the power and then visit them for the interview (if they do not pass the interview they lose their power all together).
Raziel is the most elusive angel of all. He will hide his symbology in riddles in both dreams and happen stance in daily life. He requires his favored to first pass the test of observation, riddle and intellect before he begins to test them in their sleep by taking them to the astral plane. There he will have one of his abandon the favored in a realm and see how they react to the various dangers and peoples. If they react in a way that warrants further attention, Raziel will make more direct contact in dreams or during astral visits to interview the person, though he will not be obvious as to who he is or that it is an interview at all. If the person passes this test, he will reveal himself to them and ask them directly what they would like to create in the world, what destiny are they called to accomplish that benefits not just themselves, but everything in creation. If they can make a suitable suggestion, he will grant them his power which gives them access to the ethereal realms. This is for seeking teachers and experiences that would aid them in personal and destiny based growth.
Some characters are primary 'voices' for the angels. These channelers will be the common method of communication between the angel and the world, sometimes even being the approachers to favored people. Channels can lose favoritism, like everyone else if they make poor life choices that are against the angelic disposition. These channels unconsciously gain knowledge (not powers) from their patron and after they are awakened to their position, can consciously channel the angel.
Characters that make choices that insult or defile the angelic agenda will lose favoritism and their powers along with it. They can, potentially in time, regain them after a long under taking of self-discovery and penance.
