The handicraft of the gods is everywhere: in places of natural beauty, in mighty crusades, in soaring temples, and in the hearts of worshippers. The gods, however, mostly work through their intermediaries: their clerics. A cleric uses the power of her god to make the god's will manifest, which means clerics can be relied on to heal, protect, and avenge.
The cleric serves as the group's primary healer, diviner, and defensive specialist. She can hold her own in a fight, but generally focuses on healing party members.
All simple weapons, all armor, and all shields except tower shields.
