Priestly Vestments

Recommended Posts

We have tabards for kingdoms, how about something similar for Priests?  The idea would be to make a tabard with a symbol for the god of the priest.   Perhaps a tree symbol for Fo, rock (or even cooler fire) for Magranon, water for Vynnora, and a skull for Libila.  This way they can still wear armor and such, but be identified as a faithful priest of their religion.

+1 or even, dare we say it, a robe?

Agreed. A tabbard or even a robe that would go over the armour.


 


If I dare dream, then I would ask for a robe that could be enchanted to be an armour (new spell needed, of course) and wearable only by priests.


 


But anything is a good start.

More variety in clothing options is always nice.

However, Id like to see such also serve some function ingame as well.

Myabe they could work a bit like the metal altars.

Like you'd craft a "Robe" out of wool. It would be a black Monk Robe, and it wouldn't have any special effects (or maybe have a generic bonus to favor regen).

Then a priest would cast bless on the Robe tunring it into a "Robe of Vynora"/"Robe of Water", "Robe of Magranon"/"Robe of Flame", "Robe of Fo"/"Robe of Life", "Robe of Libila"/"Robe of the Summoned" or whatever names you come up with.

When blessed the Robe's look would change slightly, like the Libila's Robe would gain purple Decorations and maybe a skull on the belt, while Vynora's would gain Blue decorations, and maybe have a Book hanging from the belt, while Magranon would have red decorations and a dagger on the belt, Fo with green decorations and a branch or a potion flask (being the only one that can do Alchemy) on their belt.

 

Those Robes would only be wareable by followers of the respective God, and would give a bonus to priestly or god-favourable stuff.

 

You could even expand it so that robes could be "upgraded" like (example for Vyn):

Normal Robe - Black, white trims - Extra favor regen - Requires 30 Faith to equip

Blessed Robe -Black, blue trims - Extra favor regen+ God bonus (for example channeling bonus (this would be same for all gods, or maybe woodcutting, specific to vynora) - Requires 50 Faith to equip

Devout Robes (Enchanted with Bless and Vynora's Hand1)- Black, blue trims, book hanging from belt - Extra Favor regen + Stronger God Bonus (maybe add channeling bonus and bonus to god favoured skills) - Requires 70 Faith to Equip

Archon Robes (Devout Robes + Gold Necklace = Unfinished Archon Robes, needs 5 Diamonds and 5 god specific gems2 to finish) - Silver, blue trims, Book - Devout Bonus + 20 Bonus Favour - Requires 90 Faith to equip

 


1- Or equivalent spell for other faiths: Libila's Shielding, Fo's Touch, and Magranon's Shielding.

2- Saphire for Vynora, Ruby for Mag, Emerald for Fo, Opal for Libila, could be made to require a single Star gem of the specific type to make it harder to do, in that case Robes could forgo the Faith requirement.
