Priests of Bralm are ever busy, seeking to increase the influence of their deity. Priests of Bralm cannot use spells or magic items that in any way create fire, but they can use spells and items that protect from fire. Priests of Bralm gain access to spells involving insects as if the spell were one level lower. For example, a priest of Bralm treats the insect plague spell as a 4th level spell instead of as a 5th level spell for purposes of spell memorization. In addition to this, any spell involving insects that is cast by a priest of Bralm is treated as if it were cast by a priest of 4 levels higher than the casterís actual level with regards to duration, effect, and any other variables. Priests of Bralm turn or command undead (depending on alignment) at -3 levels. As priest of Bralm advance in level, they gain the following powers:
These powers are gained cumulatively. The shape change abilities function similar to the druid ability, except that each form may be assumed for only one hour.
Bralm is worshipped in hot regions, especially in Hepmonoland and the Vast Swamp; also, those who remain of the Suel peoples in the Sea of Dust hold her in high esteem. Bralm is never worshipped by druids, for her motives are in conflict with the balance of natural order.
