Disapproval removal

Post by soulcatcher78 » Sun Apr 23, 2017 12:06 pm

I'm trying to wrap my head around the disapproval rules for the Cleric. I get how you accrue it and how it can lead to a higher probability of spell failure and more disapproval (looks like unlikely players can snowball this pretty quickly).

Other than sacrifices and possible quests to atone for being such a cosmic screw up, how can you shed disapproval?
- decrease disapproval by 1 for each day prostheltyzing
- decrease disapproval by 1 for each foe of the faith defeated
- decrease disapproval by 1 for each convert

I don't recall seeing a time limit on how long you're stuck with it so giving options to get out from under it and increase effectiveness of the Cleric seems like a good idea.

Normally, disapproval resets each day (but not disapproval effects which last longer than this).
SoBH pbp:

Cathbad the Meek (herbalist Wizard 1): AC 9; 4 hp; S 7, A 7, St 10, P 17, I 13, L 8; Neutral; Club, herbs, 50' rope, 50 cp; -1 to melee attack rolls. Hideous scar.

Failed my read roll:

"When the cleric regains spells on the
following day, his disapproval range is reset
to a natural 1."

The effects lasting makes much more sense.

Thanks!

Don't throw out your ideas though. Even though disapproval resets, use these rules to regain Luck that has been spent!
