Cleric of Ares

Compatable Races:

Barbarian, Cambion, Goblin, Half-Elf, Half-Giant, Half-Orc, Human, Kataran, Kobold, Minotaur, Ogre, Orc, Troll

Ares is the god of war, destruction, bloodlust, and violence. Conquest is his chief goal, and anywhere he can increase it, he gains more influence. As such, priests of Ares tend to be of a less civilized mindset. Ares priests are not very adept at healing as clerics usually are. A priest of Ares is much like a berserker-priest, in that he is able to go berserk in combat in order to do more damage. Also like a berserker, an Ares priest is able to bash his opponents to oblivion, although not as well. Ares priests are always in the vanguard of any barbarian conquests, and they often seek to lead in battle all over Derlith. Clerics of Ares despise clerics of Ceris, often openly attacking them or driving them away.

Abilities: Pray, Teach, Bash, Berserk

Restrictions: Must remain neutral. Healing spells are always cast at half level.
