OSH Pantheon: A Sun God

I will be posting thirteen new gods over a span of time, working towards a neat little pantheon beyond the 5 existing gods in “Fictive’s Talents and Templates.”

Sun god–basic stuff, applicable in many places and many ways. Here you go!

OSH Canticles of Sun

My standard format is to title with “Canticles of” and the god’s domain, followed by “Prayers to” and the god’s name–in this case, “Solastian.”

The first paragraph notes the god’s purview, followed by three popular forms.

The second paragraph notes the holy symbol, favored weapon, and clothing recommendation for clerics and the faithful.

The third paragraph notes three things that please and displease the god.

Then, five talents (spells) that note duration, action type to cast, and underline the elements that can be upgraded by improving talents (relatively obvious places to upgrade based on the talent improvement system requiring a minimum of negotiation with the DM.)

The idea with this template is to provide enough information to indicate a direction and a flavor, without getting bogged down in much description. The entire description and spell list for the god takes less than a page, but provides lots of fuel for campaign and character ideas. That’s the goal.
