Rejected - Priest Perform Miracle
« Topic Start: April 12, 2020, 10:22:18 PM »
Title: Miracle Healing
Summary: Allow Priest to be able to attempt to save a killed hero.
Details: Make an option where if a Hero is killed in battle, a Priest can attempt to heal them. I imagine a very tight timeline on this, perhaps two turns for the priest to get to the hero, and then have a rate of success based on the priest's Oratory skill.
Benefits: A previous feature request got me thinking about how to improve the religion game in BM. What does it lack? A reason to have faith. Being able to perform something that is generally impossible to all others (while not being game breaking of course) would go a LONG way in motivating players to be more faith orientated.
Possible Downsides or Exploits: If the rate of success is too great, it might be impossible to kill off heroes. However, given the low volume of priests, they would have to be lucky enough to be in range, and then win the roll to succeed at healing. This would do nothing to give any real edge in combat or realm strength, so I think the downsides are pretty minimal.

Admit nothing, deny everything, make counter-accusations.

Nope.

This is not D&D. Priests are not healers.

All religions are right about one thing—every other religion is wrong. Or at least, none of the other religions will grant miracles on demand.

But guess what: neither will yours! ;D

Blessed are those who have not seen, and yet believe.

Shame on you Gildre, you should know better!  :P

Granted, I'm pretty sure there are still mentions on the wiki that say: "there will never be a forum."  ;D

Speak for yourself guys.

My characters have seen miraculous recovers of dead people.

Heck, my characters have seen the gods come down and wipe out entire sections of the map to kill the Daimons.

Miracles my characters have seen a many.  ;)
