In Shattered Dreams all clerics must personally meet their god before they receive the benefits of spells and abilities. There are many priests in the world of Shattered Dreams who simply serve their deities in a mundane fashion. It’s a special kind of priest who undergoes The Visitation and gains the blessing of their god to perform miraculous deeds in their name. The only god whose followers do not undergo The Visitation is Sotu. Because he is sealed away from the material plane he cannot be visited. Instead, his followers seek out his crystal of imprisonment and weep at it. Sotu grants clerical powers to some and slays others seemingly at random. For Braea the visitation isn’t only for clerics, but for druids as well.
