A God Are We?
My brothers and sisters my faith have observed that mortals, despite their flaws, are divine beings. This is not to say that we see ourselves as gods, but instead as godly. A priest of my faith so capable would not receive his ability to perform miracles from himself, but rather from the divine energy that each and every mortal radiates. We feel that as you perfect yourself emotionally, physically, and spiritually, the energies you radiate grow in magnitude. This in turn enables those enlightened mortals who can shape and wield these energies to help make the world safe for all.
Don't Stand in the Fire
The red dragon fell, but not before she took three of ours: Amp, Po, and Cyrius were no more, incinerated by her fiery breath. Beornegar nearly took his own life, too, for the ghastly fool rode Amp's burning remains down a slope to reach the beast faster! While he succeeded in slicing her throat open as she lunged at him, he also succeded in nearly burning to death. You see, Amp was a retired lantern-maker who wanted to see the world, and he carried several flasks oil with him...that broke, and were burning when Beornegar attempted his stunt.
The Nagging Needy
Please do me a favour when you travel with a priest who can work miracles, or even a wizard. Don't beg. When priests pray for guidance, we're usually considering what's best for everyone around us, and not just one person. Do you know how many glory-hungry young warriors I've had to reprimand for insisting that I make their every blow a killing blow, or people I've had to tell that their bruises were not worth magical healing? Well, the answer is "a lot". If I help you, it's because you genuinely need it, and not because of your nagging.
I've noticed that some people who travel under the authority of one nation or god think that the rules of their destinations don't apply to them, and that everyone should respect that. Answer me this: If someone went into your house, took whatever they pleased, and punched you in the face, wouldn't you punch them back and throw them out? So why are you going to cause trouble and expect special treatment? The bottom line is that unless the inhabitants of a place infringe upon your basic rights, don't cause trouble! Or, do, and be ready to pay the price.
