|Really interesting development here:
Now, why I find this so interesting is that there has been a Flannae "pantheistic priest" in my campaign for nearly 20 years. He oversees a small city cut into the bluffs of the Blemu Hills. He is necessarily an NPC, but I always wanted to write something up for a priest class that represented all deities within a pantheon that could be used for PCs. There just never was a need to do so, but the idea was at the very least intriguing to me. The basic structure I gave to the character's priest class was that there is a cosmology that governs the Flannae pantheon (any pantheon really), and this dictates what deity is in ascendance at a particular time, and so the NPC would adopt aspects of that deity at that time. This included spell access and powers granted, armor and weapons used, raiment worn, and even a shift in alignment tendencies from the NPC's basic alignment of True Neutral. He's a very mercurial individual! I find this worked well for a pantheon with a wide variety of alignments.
And now we have this offering for Pathfinder 2E, which tackles pantheons that may not have as much variety, such as the demi-human pantheons. Looking forward to reading this one to see their take on things.
