Overview

Where clerics and paladins seek out the blessings of their deities on their journeys of faith, the oracle's very existence is tested by an infusion of divine energy too great for his body to contain. Though inflicted with a curse which handicaps him physically, it is that very handicap which allows the oracle to focus completely on their divine pursuits, and uncover the mysteries of the great powers.

Party Role: Oracles will join groups of like-minded adventurers, or simply use their relationship with an adventuring party to further their own religious pursuits.

Restrictions: None.

Oracles receive Knowledge:Corridors instead of Knowledge:Planes.
