Let's say I would like to play a Gnome Sorcerer that wears Heavy Armour. Right now, the options are to spend 3 General Feats on it, meaning I would have to wait until level 9 before I can actually wear any of it.
Alternatively, I could take a Champion dedication. But the only interesting thing from that Dedication is the proficiencies, so I would completely ignore the anathema. How would this be handled in PFS? Would there be any negative consequences?
Instead of ignoring the anathema and thereby creating the pretext for this question, wouldn't it just be easier to pick a deity that just sort of does what you want your character to do? I mean, if you're a gnome sorcerer Nethys (NG) seems like an obvious choice but there are a half dozen other deities with not-that-difficult to do anathemas.
I get that it isn't ideal, but it also isn't terribly burdensome. Other options will probably come out over time to make this particular problem easier to solve.
