Paladin of Slanoush
Paladins of Slanoush
You chose to de a paladin of Slanoush. You will have the chance to use karmic astral energy, energy given to you by your god to carry out his will. Each paladin of Slanoush has a certain amount of karmic astral energy, and by using his charisma (and sometimes a bit of intelligence), combined with his energy, he can influence reality by calling the gods to his side. If that fails, he hits things.
The spells are accessible based on your level. But sometimes, of course, it doesn’t work. In any case, you won’t be able to use your powers unless you have a Slanoush relic (that you will have to buy, steal, or trade for. It’s up to you). Relics are sometimes available at temples and certain shops. You can also find some while killing people, which is much more festive. If you don’t have a relic, you can still fight like anyone else, just without spells. You will thus be ‘aspiring paladin’.
CRUCIAL INFORMATION RELATE TO SLANOUSH
Slanoush is the god of secrets, vices, perversion, psychology and dreams. He knows the secrets of the Universe, like, for example, the recipe for hazelnut spread. He knows how women think. He understands why men buy large quantities of useless crap. He is a strange demon, who guides his followers in numerous indecipherable disciplines: even those leading the cults aren’t able to explain what is going on, and that actually gives him a mysterious aura that makes them even more popular. As to the vices and perversion… The disciples often perform rituals that nobody wants to explain.
Their social chair is in the Temple of the “Reformed Church of Slanoush”, in Glargh. Warriors and most of the followers like to wear yellow and advertise without secrect their religion everywhere. When they congregate, they use a rather complex code of hierarchy (purple, blue, maroon, etc). Its not always readily apparent of what the code is without being initiated.
OBLIGATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
Slanoush is not a god who asks for much. Like all gods, he asks for a daily hour of prayer/meditation/lecture before granting the follower his word. If this prayer isn’t performed, the spells will not be granted the following day.
- You must bathe at least once a week (better not be a dwarf!)
- You may not wear a full set of armor. Slanoush likes that his followers show off their body. They may not wear more than two pieces of armor at one time
- You may not resist any advances of a person of the opposite gender if their charisma is at least 12.
- You may not participate in a quest that favors another god.
- You may not socialize with a priest or a paladin of another religion (Slanoush is very jealous).
- You may not use 2 handed weapons. Slanoush likes refined things.

The paladin needs to concentrate and cannot fight or do other complex actions at the same time.
