 +====== Accolyte ======
 +An accolyte is a faithful member of a particular deity or pantheon of deities who begins the sometimes arduous training of the priesthood. ​ Each church has its own standards on attaining priesthood, and the standards vary from virtually nonexistant to extremely time-consuming. ​ Upon completion of the time allotted for an accolyte, and if that accolyte'​s faith is firm and secure, then they may be promoted to [[deacon]] -- a priest imbued with the powers of one or more deities.
 +The Church of [[Brigain]],​ for instance, requires that all accolytes journey to their central tower at an undisclosed location. ​ They must then climb the many steps of the tower naked, and upon entering the top-most room of the tower, the accolytes are blasted with lightning. ​ Those that survive and are loyal to Brigain, are awarded powers beyond those of most mortals.
 +The Church of [[Barith]] requires only that accolytes spend one year growing plants, and those deemed worthy by the angels of the Harvest God are allowed to grow abilities few others ever see.
 +The Church of [[Yatindar]],​ on the other hand, requires four years of rigorous study in law, culture, self-defense,​ and religion. ​ After four years of study, accolytes are allowed to attend a two days long ceremony in which they do not eat or sleep, attending vigil over a sacred relic of the church and being randomly quizzed by the priests of the God of Justice. ​ Successful accolytes are awarded special dispensation direct from the Relic of Yatindar.
