OK, I just wanted to use it for inspiration.

I have no idea. Since AFAIK there is little *official* HQ stuff on Pavis and city gods, I doubt if there is much truly canon canon to conflict with. GAG, yes, which personally I'm much more interested in.

I'm honestly not sure, but have changed the subject to emphasise this question.

What abilities would he be left with?

Would he even have anything left that could resist magical attacks?

Does he have followers in other cults who can help him out?

It would be interesting to play out - what does it feel like to be a Devotee deprived of your magic? Add up the sum of all his affinities, give him that as a "homesick" flaw?

Just a minute.... Light dawns. I *hope* you can play a Devotee missing his magic. Because during OiD, there's an awful lot of them.

Guys? Who's played through the Fimbulwinter bit of OiD with Orlanthi Devotee PCs? How did you do it?
