Preacher  U

Historical background

The medieval preacher embraces an ideal of the perfect cleric who presents a divine message through his preaching. Yet, he is like any other man who errs and sins. The authorized preacher was usually a male cleric, there existed female preachers, or more commonly, debates about the appropriateness of women preachers.

Preachers often stood on the frontline between heresy and orthodoxy. They used sermons to assert their authority and help maintain orthodoxy in the face of new lay religious movements and Hussite heresy respectively.

Examples:

Priest: one authorized to perform the sacred rites of a religion especially as a mediatory agent between humans and God; specifically: an Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, or Roman Catholic
clergyman ranking below a bishop and above a deacon.

Friar: a member of a religious order (as the Franciscans) combining monastic life and outside religious activity and originally owning neither personal nor community property.

Pardoner: a medieval preacher delegated to raise money for religious works by soliciting offerings and granting indulgences.

How does it work?

Use your Job Log to spawn an altar. This altar is based on your own deity and takes the same alignment restrictions as the idols. Your altar is removed when you use your Job Log to spawn a second one. Preparing the altar takes 2 minutes (ie: you can let people pray at your altar 2 mins after you spawn it).

When a PC clicks the altar he starts to pray if he has the proper alignment. On success the PC gets a token 10 XP times your rank for praying, you get the usual XP.

Praying at an altar takes 2 minutes and both the Preacher and the PC need to stay close to the altar during that time. During this time nobody else can pray.
