“What do you call a cleric of Wololita that doesn’t fight?
Worshippers of the big W believe warfare promotes healthy, hardworking people, stronger society and appeasement to Wololita. Warfare removes the sick and sickly from the gene pool and gives natural leaders a chance to surface. Worshippers strive to prepare for and if necessary start wars. The bigger the better, and every war is holy to them no matter which side you are on. (Wololita is truly on both sides of the battle!) Oberhardts are attracted to their dedication to fighting as an art and a form of worship. Enemies of the faith include followers of Bonig (pacifists!), demons (rarely fight fair) and undead (no chance for Wololita to be on their side too).
Temples are generally small, and located near key strategic passes, roads and cities. Warriors sacrifice captured weapons or armor after battles and food, money and land (for future temples) before battles. Cleric view compromise, retreat and surrender as sins. Starting a battle is a moral obligation to them. Wololita is also gender blind – clerics are equally divided between men and women.
Clerics and paladins of Wololita have to be in one battle or major fight (30 combatants fighting to the death) every 30 days outside of training or temple work or lose all their benefits including spells.
The Reformed Church of Wololita preaches the “be the best you can be” philosophy of life. Enemies who come to a fight ill-prepared are sometimes released alive so they can train up and be better the next time they fight. The University of New Hope is the most famous of their schools, and a source of income for anyone with skills to teach.
