Blessings

A blessing is a temporary power, bestowed by a priest or crusader. When a blessing is cast the recipient of the blessings gets a condition card from the caster describing the blessing.

Casting Blessings

Blessings are cast during the blessing ceremony (see the ceremonies section). Before casting a blessing, ask the recipient if they will accept your blessing. How exactly you cast a blessing is up to you, for example: you could offer them some medium through which the blessing is transferred. This medium can be many things, for example a mark of blood, a sprinkle of water, inhaling the incense smoke or a simple touch. You could say a few lines of prayer or a few other appropriate words.

The DC it costs to cast a blessing is detailed on the blessing condition but "signature" blessings do not cost DC. You want to carry the conditions for the blessings that you want to cast before you start the ceremony. If you have run out of the blessing conditions you need you can always ask a GM for more.

Signature blessings

These are small signature blessings that do not cost DC to cast for a priest of the proper deity and are usually handed out as a reward by such priest in exchange for the DC. They can only be cast for free by a priest of that particular deity or they can be bestowed upon worshippers if they leave DC at some holy items.

Multiple Blessings

Crusaders can carry multiple blessing. There are many interesting combinations of blessings. You can have the same blessing more then once. You do this by applying the numbers in the blessing as many times as you have the blessing. For example if you have Saint Protection twice, you gain 1 + 1 HP.

If you have to call an effect, you double the power of that effect. If you have a blessing that causes stumble twice, you call stumble 4, since the default of stumble is 2, and you double it. Do not call the effect twice.
