Durkon Thundershield, a Dwarf Cleric.

The Cleric is a magical class that depends on God-given abilities, and are usually a party's primary healer. They are the only core class capable of raising the dead.

History[edit | edit source]

According to information passed to Redcloak by his god, the Dark One, clerics were created as a result of a compromise between the three pantheons when they were creating the current world. Since direct conflict between gods fueled the Snarl, the gods agreed to limit their direct intervention in the affairs of mortals to one-third of the world for each pantheon. To act outside these boundaries, the gods agreed to grant spells to certain mortals, which they called clerics (and paladins, and druids). However, to actually be able do anything useful, said divine representatives needed to gain levels, and so the gods created monster races (such as goblins, hobgoblins, bugbears, orcs, kobolds and lizardfolk) specifically as XP fodder for their clerics.[1]
