Spreading the word of their chosen god is not merely a job for the proselyte, it is a compulsion that cannot be denied.

What’s more, the proselyte so firmly believes his deity should be followed he goes far beyond mere preaching into the realms of forceful conversion. The proselyte does not believe that it is enough to tell others of his god, he must make them follow his god at any cost. While devout in his belief, the proselyte is intolerant and dangerous to those who do not share his faith. Proselytes have been known to set fire to the fields of infidels, poison their wells, destroy irrigation canals and otherwise create havoc on communities. With the village on its knees, the proselyte then rides in to offer respite to those who will accept his god as their saviour.

Benefits: The proselyte is very creative when it comes to causing trouble for those who have not come around to his way of thinking. A proselyte receives a +2 competence bonus to any ability or skill check made while attempting to sabotage or destroy any structure, item, or territory important to a community.

Penalties: The same zeal that makes a proselyte so eager to wreak havoc in the name of his god also makes him difficult to stomach. Because of his fanaticism, the proselyte suffers a -4 competence penalty to all Diplomacy checks.
