Iomedae Clerical Prayer


Pathfinder Campaign Setting General Discussion

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Not exactly sure where this fits, but if it needs to be moved that's fine.

I was curious if anyone had any good ideas for what an Iomedae cleric's prayer would look like. I've always enjoyed things of the sort (Mass Effect 2/ Mass Effect 3's Thane was my favorite character, partially for how they handled his religious side.)

In our campaign, my cleric's brother (the party ranger) just died valiantly fighting a Whispering Way cultist (Auron Vrood to be specific), so I'm looking for something particularly cool to have Otheos (me) say over his fallen brother.

Bonus points if it works in something about the fight not being over, as he plans to travel to the capital city and try to find a means of resurrection for him. He'd rather leave his brother's spirit in peace, but he also knows they will desperately need him in the fights to come (He's a Ranger who was specifically trained to hunt cultists.)

In the meantime he'll still want to say some sort of prayer over him.

Any ideas for what that would sound like?


Off the top of my head, I don't have any ideas, but if you felt like doing some research, you might look into some of the prayers and rituals of the Catholic Church during the Crusades, or maybe the Knights Templar.


You were strong in life, always vailiant and just. You will find your way to the halls of our Lady Iomedae and sit at teh table of our fathers. Should we meet again on this side of the line than we'll raise a mug and lift our swords once more.

That sounds more like Cayden Cailean or Valhalla to me.

"O Brother, as so many, you have fought for the just and the right, and have fallen for your, our, the cause of Iomedae. But Justice will honour you and everyone who dies serving the greater good of Iomedae, the Inheritor.
For everyone who falls for the cause of justice and valor, we who remain have to fight harder to honour them, for even with death, not all is lost. The righteous shall return. And even when great Aroden, the Last Atzlanti, died, did Iomedae despair and give up? No! She, the Inheritor, took up his sword to fight on!
You may have died, Brother, but I will get you back to our world. And even should I fail- the judgement shall hit those villains even harder! And this shall be my vow: I will bring the Justice of Iomedae down on this Cult, and I shall not rest till we are united again, either fighting them or having died trying!
Hail Iomedae the Inheritor!"


but he did say that he was going to raise him from the dead if possible and mine did just that....


I have done some things in this direction(reunited in fighting,I will get you back to this world, the righteous shall return), but I really was not sure how much/ how to add this into the speech.


short and simple though does work best.

no but this does

My fallen brother.
we raise a tanard on your birth, we raise a tankard for your life, we raise a tankard for achievements. We sing a song to celebrate your memory and should we meet again this side of Pharasma's court, we raise two tankards and start a drunken brawl.
