Green Faith and a Deity Change Question - PFS Character Question

Scarab Sages 5/5 Venture-Captain, Washington—Spokane

I have a level 5 Druid that I am hoping to change deities from Nethys to Green Faith so I can take the Green Faith Acolyte feat and go into the Green Faith Acolyte prestige class. My Druid is neutral so there will be no alignment changes at all.

The questions I have are this:

Can I change deities at this point or am I out of luck?
If it is possible to make the change, is there anything I need to do to make that change possible?
If I make the change, do I lose any abilities or spell casting?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I would imagine it would require 3,000gp or 8PP version of atonement to switch deities. Otherwise I think you can do so without issue.

Here is an interesting point..

The Green Faith is not actually an authorized religion as a choice for PFS.

That said, the way philosophies work they allow you to have a deity and be a follower of the philosophy, so in your case you would not change your deity to "The Green Faith" but to one of the deities that are Associated with the philosophy and count your self as a follower of the philosophy but have a deity of one of the Associated Religions.

So you want to change your deity to one of the following

Gozreh N – Sources: Core Rulebook, The Inner Sea World Guide, Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Gods and Magic, Pathfinder Player Companion: Gnomes of Golarion (PC Alignment N/LN/CN/NG)
Count Ranalc CN – Sources: The Inner Sea World Guide (PC Alignment CN/N/CG)
Green Mother NE – Sources: The Inner Sea World Guide (PC Alignment N)
Imbrex LN – Sources: The Inner Sea World Guide (PC Alignment LN/N/LG)
Lantern King CN – Sources: The Inner Sea World Guide (PC Alignment CN/N/CG)
Lost Prince N – Sources: The Inner Sea World Guide (PC Alignment N/LN/CN/NG)
Magdh LN – Sources: The Inner Sea World Guide (PC Alignment LN/N/LG)
Ng N – Sources: The Inner Sea World Guide (PC Alignment N/LN/CN/NG)
Ragadahn CE – Sources: The Inner Sea World Guide (PC Alignment CN)
Shyka N – Sources: The Inner Sea World Guide (PC Alignment N/LN/CN/NG)

I would suggest you pick one of the following that is the closest to your Druids believes since they do not require an alignment change: Gozreh, Count Ranalc, Green Mother, Imbrex, Lantern King, Lost Prince, Magdh, Ng, Shyka.

Edit: There is actually one other option, you can choose to be an atheists or to have no deity at all and still count yourself as a Follower of The Green Faith since Druids do not need to pick a Deity if they do not wish to, only when you pick one are you limited to what is PFS authorized.

Druids are not required to choose a deity, so they could worship the Green Faith


I think atonement would still apply if they were to switch from one deity to no deity + the green faith philosophy,
even if they previously followed the green faith, formerly receiving powers from a deity
and then receiving them from another source should require an atonement. Not totally sure, but that sounds reasonable to me.

I noted that in my Edit, that said it it still would not be a "Deity", it will just be a role-playing thing that he states he follows the philosophy but no longer has a deity.

Would that require an atonement since my Druid is level 5 or just change it as a role playing element?
