Surprised nobody mentioned the Self-Realization Subdomain of the Liberation or Strength Domains. The Archives of Nethys pages for the parent domains Liberation and Strength (it doesn't have its own page, so scroll down to the bottom of either one) list the associated deities. It replaces the liberation power of the Liberation domain or the strength surge ability of the Strength domain, but the upside of it is that the 4th level Domain spell replacement is Paragon Surge, even if you are not a Half-Elf. Clerics don't get any bonus feats (except for a few archetypes that grant them at the cost of something else), while Paragon Surge is a 1 minute/level free bonus feat that you can change each day. If you go with the Eldritch Heritage feat chain or VMC Sorcerer with the Shapechanger Bloodline (although this does cost a bunch of feats), you can make it 10 minutes/level and eventually 1 hour per level. Then use it to take whichever Item Creation feat you need temporarily but don't want to invest in permanently, as long as it isn't one that has a prerequisite you don't want to take with a regular feat (you still need to qualify for the feat to be able to get it with Paragon Surge).

Self-Realization? Perfect domain for the god of self-help books.

My first thoughts are to take just the straight Good domain or to take the Separatist archetype.

Also, if you are taking Luck & Good (even Good(Archon)), you should take a look at Shelyn, another NG deity with Luck & Good. It's understandable if you didn't want your character to serve a deity of love and art at first glance, but her story is really cool. Also Shelyn is a more prominent deity than Kurgess.


^I think that the objection is that you can't get the Arcnon Subdomain off a Neutral Good deity (and from my brief search, you can't get the Luck Domain off a Lawful Good deity). Unless you go with the Separatist archetype on a Lawful Good deity to get Luck (I doubt that you cab use this archetype to get the Archon Subdomain on a Neutral Good deity, since it is alignment-specific -- however, Luck isn't, despite no Lawful Good deities choosing to offer it).


Is it possible to get the Archon subdomain with just a Neutral deity?

Yeah, punch your DM repeatedly until he or she understands that you really, really, REALLY need a custom deity which will have your cherry-picked domains and that you won't stop punching until you get it your way.

Seriously, works every time.


That is brilliant advice!
