Specialty Priests of Dagan call themselves Daganites, they wear Brown robes over armor,which is often scale designed to look like snakeskin. The holy symbol of Dagan is a Viper. Daganites are celibate, mostly female and rarely any fun to be with unless you are a Daganite. (Dagan is also called Gege, his followers Gegenites)
Relationships with Other Priesthoods: The Church of Dagan is at open war with the church of Cambrus, which doesn't seem to really care.


True Neutral (good)
Followers of Deius are regular Clerics. They believe he is the only true god, and thus are outlawed, even hunted in some places. they call themselves "The Illumined" or the Chosen ones. Their holy symbols are a torch or a 10-stone tree-of-life.
Relationships with Other Priesthoods: As is expected, the priests of Deius get along with no one, regardless of alignment.
