Cleric have what is perhaps considered to be the most honored profession in Mistwatch, and in some circles they may even be revered. A divine weaver of spells brings to the world the sort of magic that can help all people brave it, and they do so without the typical, and perhaps warranted, superstition associated with other sorts of spellcasters. Holy men are often sought out during trying times. Cleric of EL are often valued for their wisdom or their ability to combat the darkness, while clerics of angel may be sought when that particular angel’s domain is something of immediate concern.
This is, of course, assuming that the cleric in question has a patron among the Benevolent or maybe even the Independent Powers. Evil clerics are perhaps the most feared people in all Mistwatch. They are seen as harbingers of all mortal adversaries.
