Do you have a job? What do you do for money?

For the past several years, Baern has been working for the local government as a talented stone mason, building walls, courthouses, etc. Most recently, he recently finished a contract in which he was asked to oversee a small team of masons while building a stone chruch dedicated to Erathis. This proved to be a turning point in Baern's life as he began to spend time with the preists of the church. The preists showed him how they care for the dead, and taught him a simple ritual that would allow him to mend broken materials, such as cracks in stone. Inspired, Baern has been spending an increasing amount of his off-work hours with the Erathis preists and is considering joing their ranks, a direction his clan members approve of.

What is most important to you?

His clan, and his faith in Erathis.

So troy my idea to start is basically the church is going to kind of test you and assign you a mission before you are accepted as a full fledged member. Being as you were not born to be in the church and raised to become a priest, paladin, cleric etc they need to make sure your dedication to staying with this path. The standard procedure is to begin training with them but not be accepted until your worth has been judged. Also to join the church so devoutly later in life (versus birth) you must exemplify their ideals,
1. Letter and spirit of law above all others; no one is above the law and must be held accountable for their actions.
2. Magic users not sanctioned by the church are to dealt with promptly.
3. Actions against the innocent shall not be tolerated.

Erathis does not have the same attitudes of some gods (help those less fortunate etc) as each man is held accountable for their actions.

So basically if you are willing to take an oath to all this and then be prepared to do what the church asks you are on the road to being accepted.
>In game terms this means you can play the class to its fullest but you are not recognized by the denizens of the world as a "real" priest etc. if that makes sense.

Got it, and sounds like it's going to fun.

The only catch that I can think of here is working out my char's personality such that it allows him to accomplish the things you listed above, which he wants to do, while simultaneously steering him away from a Paladin-like stance.

So, if for some reason we don't end up scrapping these characters n stuff, can I remake Baern? I discovered that there are lots of clerical abilities that are all about pushing and pulling and knocking prone, or otherwise using the battlefield in a far more strategic and tactical way than the melee powers I chose before. Also, these abilites are often Wisdom vs Will or Wisdom vs Reflex, which might work better because part of my problem before is that all of Baern's powers were Strength vs AC and I think I only hit ANYTHING 3 times at the most.

I think that is a pretty good idea. With the addition of Zac and the potential new campaign we are playing in or whatever I don't think it's a big deal. I was actually thinking of making a new Paladin since a lot of the idea of the wizard came from the setting of ERathis itself. Also, I ended up chossing the wizard because we needed a controller but now I'm not so sure.

Yeah of course if you want to remake him you should feel free, I guess the main thing would be making sure you really wanted to play him and there isnt something more appealing? Like I guess I mean don't do another cleric JUST to prove to yourself it can be fun, I would take another look or two at the other classes they all have some really tits stuff.

I love the use of "tits" as an adjective. I also accept "titty."
