Deity for a LG Vivisectionist?


Advice


With Crimson Throne coming up for a re-release in the near future, one or two people I know are considering running it, and I've come up with a character concept. But I rather need to give them a solid connection to a church/cult despite not being a divine caster.

So, what are some fitting LG deities/Empryeal Lords for someone who can debate SSC with all the cenobite sorts in CotCT?


Depends on your characters personality, it's hard to know which good to pick if we don't know what the character stands for


Erastil could have some interest in how animals are cut up and used to feed others.

Vildeis, an empyreal Lord might be an intriguing choice.


Irori. you seek understanding of the body to help it on its way to perfection

If you're wanting to debate SSC then Arshea and Lymneiris are your go-to Empyreal Lords.

Lymnieris would be my suggestion. Free healthcare to the downtrodden in the slums. (what does SSC stand for? I'm guessing not the So Solid Crew...)

Well, the basic idea is a character to oppose the current "Hollywood writers" grade representation of BDSM in Pathfinder. Avoid the whole deal where that sort of thing has to be Chaotic and/or Evil, and go for some of the actual ideals among the community.

Specifically, a Peri-blooded aasimar, torn between their angelic nature and cruel urges from that mysterious ancestor they all share. They did spend their youth giving in to their darker side (and picked up their vivisection and beastmorph abilities with unfortunate strays) before their more celestial nature drove them to regret it and they sought aid in curbing their urges. At that point they entered a church or cult, preferably one that would involve some degree of mortification as penance. Perhaps they enjoy that aspect more than they should, but they're not a divine caster. By game start, they have found a balance where they can indulge either side of their nature, keeping to actual rules of SSC and taking great offense at the likes of Kuthites or even Calistrians.

Safe, Sane, and Consensual.

Then definitely Lymnieris.


And then everyone replied while I was typing for Neils Bohr, haha!
I'll take a look at Lymnieris then, didn't seem to fit the concept on first glance but maybe if I dig a little? Just remember Neshen sounding good but being a disappointment.

Thanks for the advice, will check out Arshea and the rest as well.

*nods*

Though Arshea might appeal more for the body modification.


Arshea does seem like a better fit than Lymnieris, at least so long as you're not looking for any chastity play!


Zohls the Empyreal Lord would be my suggestion. Basically a patron empyreal lord of detectives.

I'd run the character as basically a Coroner or medical examiner.


Might work for another concept, but in this case the PC is going to be more of a doctor. Also spending time trying to make Kuthites sit down and chat, to see if they can't be convinced to try a less ridiculous take on their ideals.
