Medallion of Faith
Article written by Kranar Drogin
Medallions of Faith are medallions that are given to newly accepted Clerics after being a supplicant. This is a cleric's outward sign for their commitment and faith toward their god or goddess. The medallions are usually made of a specific material for each deity, which bears the sign of the cleric's god or the face of the god. The gods of magic do not have medallions for their followers. The most famous is Goldmoon's Medallion of Faith.
Medallions of Faith can create other Medallions of Faith for those who have been accepted as clerics for one of the true gods. So, a Cleric of Majere may have their medallion create a medallion for a cleric of Kiri-Jolith. They can even create medallions for followers of another alignment, but this is very rare for clerics to engage in this profound exchange.
The Medallions also resist any effort to be removed by force from the cleric. It usually results in a severely shocked or burned hand.
