Tulaki

Tulaki are universally brought up within the faith of the Dominion, the Path of Tulak. Their religion teaches that individuals can obtain immortality as spirits upon their death by striving for ultimate accomplishment within their chosen field, usually under the patronage of a specific Immortal Spirit. Those who dedicate themselves to this task are called Heroes, and are often afforded great respect and status in Dominion society. Some adherents, however, forsake the quest for immortality and choose instead to guide others to greatness - these are the Priests of the Path. The Ecclesiocracy of the Dominion teaches the arts of stirring rhetoric, and the use of strange devices and mysterious chemicals that are thought to be able to interact directly with the spirits. Priests use their abilities to bridge the worlds of the spirit and the material. The skills that allow characters to become Priests and Heroes are called Devotions. Devotions are ranked skills, and cost 2 character points per rank (which does not increase with multiple purchased ranks).

Skill Cost Ability
Heroic Devotion 2 per rank Allows a character to gain the favour and powers of their chosen Immortal Spirit
Priestly Devotion 2 per rank Grants the use of 1 Ceremony per rank
