I have a few questions regarding playing a priest character. My long running group has got two new members; a lowly initiate of Taal, and wizard. I've ran with the Wizard career before, so I'm mostly fine with that.
But this is this first game, out of many that had a priest character and we ad hoc'd it a little.
Does a priest start an encounter with his favour at equiliberium or zero? From what I read, it seems that it starts at 0 - and given the way they cast a Blessing that requires say 7 favour, could take 1 round to invoke then 2+ to curry favour.
Which seems somewhat... useless as Curry Favour essentially takes up their entire round and if it takes 3+ rounds for an action to activate it can mean that its effects are no longer needed.
Is it possible to Curry Favour (perhaps before an encounter begins) without choosing a blessing?
Thirdly, the rules aren't entirely clear: but the way we played it was that stance dictated what god was invoked. So reckless meant it was Taal, and conservative was Rhya: Is this correct, or is he limited to choosing one or the other?
