Prophecies of Kalistrade: Alignment Discrepancies Between CRB and Gods & Magic


Rules Discussion


The Core rulebook allows Lawful Good Kalistocrats; the Gods & Magic says no Lawful Good followers but adds Neutral Evil followers.

CRB page 440-441 wrote:

Prophecies of Kalistrade

Follower Alignments LG, LN, LE

However, in Gods and Magic we have a different set of alignments allowed:

Gods & Magic 98 wrote:

Prophecies of Kalistrade

Alignment LN (LN, LE, NE)

(G&M notes that in the alignment section of entries "In parentheses, the entry lists other character alignments that this deity accepts from worshippers.")

Which is correct?

This may not be the best basis for an answer in a Rule Discussion forum but given what we know/what is shown as far as the lore of the Prophecies the CRBs listing seems to make more sense than the G&M entry.

Neutral Evil seems a bit too dark from what I understand the Prophecies to represent and would a Neutral Evil character really care about following a bunch of rules about purity? In Pathfinder this is the same alignment that Daemons have.

I agree. Unfortunately, this is for a concept for PFS. There's so little on Kalistocrasyout there, I also am also a little concerned about lore.

Gotcha! Well I think that since there is two sets of conflicting information, we are at the mercy of the GM you get. But I think if you present your reasoning most would agree with us? At least until we get some official clarification, I'd recommend posting to an Errata thread because this (to me) seems like a definite candidate for clarification.

Hmmm. I thought the rules forum would be the best place to bring up somethign that might be errata/in need of fixing. What forum should I ask this thread to be moved to?

I flagged it to be moved, regardless.

Thanks — I posted!

Prohibiting charitable action seems to me to put the Kalistocrats solely in the "they're not Good" category.
