Messenger of Peace

"Violence should be the last resort."

Prerequisite: Cleric, trained in Diplomacy

You grieve for the so-called civilized races, too many of whom are locked in useless, never-ending strife. Unless some brave soul steps forward to set a better example, constant warfare can only create more conflict. Thus you have laid down your weapons and spoken vows of nonviolence, hoping to find a civilized solution to the problems of mortals.

As a messenger of peace, you always work to find a way around combat when battle is avoidable. Diplomacy is your principal weapon: Through carefully chosen words and accurate assessments of your opponent’s desires, you might be able to circumvent conflict altogether. Not all enemies are willing to set aside their anger, though. Should battle erupt despite your best efforts, you are an eye of calm in war’s hurricane. The weak, the weary, and the sorely wounded find succor in your presence.
