Bio:

Gaze of Defiance:

The ghostly image of a Dwarven Valkyrie holding a warhammer appears behind me. The Valkyrie flies toward the enemy swinging the hammer. The hammer appears to connect with the enemies head. The Valkyrie then disperses into a thousand shimmering radiant lights that surround the enemy helping my allies hit the enemy better.

Righteous Brand:

The tip of my spear burns bright white as I attack helping me penetrate the enemy’s armor. As I pull my spear back, the area where I attacked is illuminated in the same bright white helping an ally attack the already weakened spot in the armor.

Sacred Flame:

I stretch my hand out towards the enemy and a cone of light descends from above, surrounding the enemy and they appear to be burnt by the light. After a couple seconds the light explodes into a thousand shimmering radiant lights. These lights then gather around an ally and are absorbed into them, strengthening them.

Healing Word:

I close my eyes and place one hand in the center of my chest kung-fu style as I start to utter a prayer. A Dwarven Valkyrie appears in front of me or a chosen ally. The Valkyrie places their hand on my or the allies head. The Valkyrie then starts to fade out of existence while myself or the ally appears to be strengthened.

Healing Strike:

The tip of my spear burns bright white as I attack. When I pull my spear back after the attack, the white light on the tip of the spear appears to have a reddish tint to it. On my command the light appears to break apart and starts to swirl around the tip of the spear. The swirling light then flies over and starts to swirl around myself or an ally of my choosing. The light is then absorbed into myself or the ally, strengthening them.

Blazing Beacon:

The tip of my spear burns bright white as I attack. As the attack lands, the glow that was on the tip if my spear seems to intensify until the enemy is surrounded by this aura of bright white light that seems to grow brighter the further away from the enemy you are. This aura acts a beacon for anyone using ranged spells so they can hit the enemy easier.

Strengthen the Faithful:

The tip of my spear burns bright white as I attack. When I pull my spear back after the attack, the white light on the tip of the spear appears to have a reddish tint to it. On my command the light appears to break apart and starts to swirl around the enemy. The light is then absorbed by myself and any ally around the enemy, strengthening us.

Beacon of Hope:

I close my eyes and place one hand in the center of my chest kung-fu style as I start to utter a prayer. The ground, radiating in a circle around me, starts to glow bright white. After a couple seconds, the light appears to break apart and starts to rise into the air. The rising light appears to be absorbed by myself or any ally that is in the circle of light, strengthening them.

Weapon of the Gods:

My hand appears to glow bright white. I place my hand on my or an allies weapon and my hand appears to get even brighter. The light then appears to flow from my hand onto the weapon causing the weapon to glow bright white.

Divine Power:

The ghostly image of a Dwarver Valkyrie appears behind me. As I raise my spear into the air, the Valkyrie appears to grab hold of the shaft along with me. As I attack, the Valkyrie lends it strength to the attack, causing the enemies to be pushed back due to the force of the attack. The Valkyrie then continues to be seen behind me, strengthening and fortifying me.

Bless:

I close my eyes and place one hand in the center of my chest kung-fu style as I start to utter a prayer. The ground, radiating in a circle around me, starts to glow bright white. After a couple seconds, the light appears to break apart and starts to rise into the air. The rising light appears to be absorbed by myself or any ally that is in the circle of light. The light then gives myself or any ally that was in the light a slight aura of white light that surrounds them, invigorating them.

Bastion of Health:

I close my eyes and place one hand in the center of my chest kung-fu style as I start to utter a prayer. A Dwarven Valkyrie appears in front of me or a chosen ally. The Valkyrie places their hand on my or the allies head. The Valkyrie then starts to fade out of existence while myself or the ally appears to be strengthened.

Berronar’s Salve:

When I notice/hear that an ally has gone down, I close my eyes and stretch a hand out in the ally’s direction. A cone of light comes down from above and surrounds their body. A Dwarven Valkyrie is seen slowly descending in the light. As the Valkyrie gets close to the allies body, the Valkyrie appears to become vaporous and is absorbed into the ally, via the mouth and nose, giving the ally life/strength.

Activating Symbol of Life:

The symbol hangs on the end of a mithril chain around my neck. The symbol for Berronar shows a Dwarven Valkyrie holding a Warhammer.

I grasp the medallion in my hand and utter a prayer. After a few seconds, I am shrouded in a aura of white light. While shrouded in this aura, the connection with my deity is stronger and helps to boost my healing powers.

Rituals

I own a leather-bound tome that contains all the rituals known to the High Clerics of the Nordish people. So when I level up and “buy” new rituals, what I am actually doing is deciphering the ancient Nordish tongue used to write the rituals. This is due to the fact that I was exiled from my clan before my cleric training (mainly in rituals) was complete. All of the spoken pieces are in ancient Nordish, which is a hodge-podge of Nordish (a variation of common) and Primordial.

Dark Light:

Reagent: a stone of pure onyx the size of a marble

I hold the stone in my hand and utter the phrase; “In the darkness, there is light.” The stone rises about 6 inches above my hand and appears to flake apart, growing in size to that of a basketball. The basketball-sized orb appears to become even darker, which seems to radiate a dim light in a large radius around me. This takes about 40 seconds. The orb then starts to slowly rotate around me at chest level and about a foot away, picking up speed. After about 20 seconds, the orb makes a circle around me every 2 seconds. The orb lasts for 24 hours or unless I utter the phrase; “To the darkness return.” At that point, the dim light fades away as the orb begins to implode on itself until it disappears completely.

Animal Messenger:

Reagent: a wooden kazoo and a magical reed that is placed into the mouthpiece

I place the reed into the kazoo and blow for about 10 seconds. The sound is not audible to most races ears, it is meant for the ears of the birds of prey. The closest bird of prey is magically coerced to fly to my location and land on my outstretched arm. I am then able to give the bird a message to deliver. By uttering the phrase; “By your wings may my words be carried to the ends of the earth.”, and thrusting my arm into the air, the bird then flies off to deliver my message.

On delivery:

The bird circles the location until the target of the message appears. [note: as I say the name of the person to whom the message is intended and the location, a picture is magically implanted in the birds brain of that individual and the location] The bird then dives down and hovers 3 feet from the person’s face. As the bird opens his beak as if to squawk, my voice comes out instead and delivers the message. After the message has been plaid back in its entirety, the bird flies off.

Tenser’s Floating Disk:

Reagent: a flat, metallic disk

I place the metal disk on the ground and utter the phrase; “Let the Elements power you and lend me their strength.” The floating disk has a varying shade of blue (based on die roll), ranging from almost white to almost purple. The darker the shade, the more weight the floating disk can carry. The lighter the shade, the less weight the floating disk can carry. The floating disk lasts for or until I place my hand on it and utter the phrase; “Return.” At that point the floating disk splits halfway down the middle and begins to fold into itself, until it is the same size as when it started. It then breaks apart like ash and flies away in the breeze, or ends up as dust on the floor.

Shadow Bridge:

Reagent: a 1 foot long, 1 inch diameter onyx rod

Place the rod in the ground with the tip angled towards where the bridge is to be. Utter the phrase; “Let the darkness show us a path.” The rod then appears to grow darker and emits a barely audible hum. The hum slightly grows louder over 30-60 seconds. After that time, all the shadows in a radius around the rod are drawn in and absorbed by the rod. This goes on for about 4 minutes. After this time, the hum stops and a solid sheet of seemingly solid shadows shoots out in a certain width and length (based on die roll). The top of the bridge looks like a sheet of solid onyx, while under that can be seen what looks like a mass of swirling shadows. The bridge lasts for 10 minutes after which time it begins to fade out of existence. The rod dissolves into ash and is gone.

[Note: While the rod is absorbing shadows, the party members and anyone or anything in the radius will not have a shadow.]

Cure Disease/Affliction:

Reagent: a handful of yellowish-white dust

Have the person lie down on the ground. Lightly spread the dust in a circle around the person. Stand along the side, middle of the person, about 2 feet back, with your right hand spread towards the person. Utter the phrase; “Elements hear my call and by your power cleanse this person.” Repeat this phrase over and over for 10/60 minutes.

While the phrase is being repeated, the following happens: a slight breeze begins to blow and swirl above the person. The dust begins to sparkle as it is picked up by the breeze swirling above the person. After about 1-2/10-15 minutes, the air above the person condenses and begins to drizzle over the person. The drizzle that is falling has a sparkle to it from the dust in the air. The air continues to swirl and the drizzling continues until the repeating of the phrase ends. When it ends, the drizzling stops and the swirling air dissipates.

Raise Dead:

Reagent: a handful of yellowish-white dust

Place the corpse so that it is on its back. Spread the dust in a circle around the person. Stand along the side, middle of the corpse, about 2 feet back, with your right hand spread towards the corpse. Utter the phrase; “Elements hear my call, and by your grace lend some of your essence that this person may be reborn.” Repeat this phrase over and over for 8 hours.

While the phrase is being repeated, the following happens: the dust erupts into a yellowish-white flame. The flame then starts to slowly expand towards the center of the circle where the corpse is. When the flame meets up in the middle and the circle is complete, it intensifies and has a bluish tint to it. As the flame begins to intensify and gain its bluish tint, a bluish-white aura of flame begins to surround me as well. [Note: The 2 flames seem to be linked as what happens to one, happens to the other.] The flame keeps slowly intensifying and the bluish tint keeps slowly becoming darker over 30-60 minutes. After that, the flame around the corpse begins to slowly recede towards the center of the circle. The flame continues to slowly recede until only the corpse, and me, has a flame on it. The flames then begin to die down until only the corpse and myself seem to glow the bluish-white. The glowing aura around us continues for 7 hours at which time, the aura blinks out.
