Pantheon Mondays: Ardentia, Azclepios and Basth


Lady of Arden Vale (demigod)                                  
 Lawful Good
Priests of Ardentia Clerics of Ardentia are regular Clerics, she also has Paladins. Both call themselves The Ardent, they wear green robes (or a tabard over armor) with their city's coat of arms, a green heraldric acer (maple) on a blue field.
Relationships with Other Priesthoods: The Ardent are a civic faith, the official state religion of the monoarchy of Arden Vale. This means that the priesthood gets many benefits that others lack, such as large state-sponsored temples and holy days as civic holidays. While the Ardent get along with other LG faiths, their special position as a civic religion creates rivalries and jealousy within Arden Vale.




Greater God of Medicine                                    
 Lawful Neutral
Portfolio: Non-Magical Healing.
Followers of Azclepios call themselves Doctors and wear white overcoats. Azclepios preaches medical healing and his followers cast no spells, but are otherwise clerics, with a full working knowledge of medicine and a 90% chance of curing anything by investigation.

Relationships with Other Priesthoods: The Doctors do not get along well with any priesthoods.
