The following are all of the domains which are available to player character clerics in the Worlds of Adventure campaign.

A cleric’s or druid’s saving throw Difficulty Classes for domain powers (that allow saving throws) are based on her total level in the priest class group, rather than levels of cleric or druid only.

Some domains, some domain powers, and some domain spells have restrictions on who may select them (only worshippers of certain gods, only characters of a certain race or class, etc.); a character who does not satisfy these restrictions cannot select that domain or that domain power, and does not gain access to those spells when selecting the domain.

Travel domain

Humans, half-elves, half-orcs, and halflings only.

Your base speed increases by 10 feet.

1st levelAgile Feet: As a free action, you can gain increased mobility for 1 round. For the next round, you ignore all difficult terrain and do not take any penalties for moving through it. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

8th levelDimensional Hop (Sp): You can teleport up to 10 feet per cleric level per day as a move action. This teleportation must be used in 5-foot increments and such movement does not provoke attacks of opportunity. You must have line of sight to your destination to use this ability. You can bring other willing creatures with you, but you must expend an equal amount of distance for each creature brought.

Alternate domain powers:

1st levelDoor Sight (Sp): You can lay your hand upon any surface and see what is on the other side, as if using clairvoyance. Using this power takes 1 minute, during which time you must be touching the surface you want to see through. You can keep looking for as long as 10 minutes with each use of this power, but must touch the surface and take no other action the entire time. The surface cannot be thicker than 6 inches plus 1 inch per cleric level you possess. You can use this power a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Trickery domain

Humans, half-elves, gnomes, and halflings only.

1st levelCopycat (Sp): You can create an illusory double of yourself as a move action. This double functions as a single mirror image and lasts for a number of rounds equal to your cleric level, or until the illusory duplicate is dispelled or destroyed. You can have no more than one copycat at a time. This ability does not stack with the mirror image spell. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

8th levelMaster’s Illusion (Sp): You can create an illusion that hides the appearance of yourself and any number of allies within 30 feet for 1 round per cleric level. This ability otherwise functions like the spell veil. The rounds do not need to be consecutive.

Alternate domain powers:

1st levelSudden Shift (Sp): In the blink of an eye, you can appear somewhere else. As an immediate action, after you are missed by a melee attack, you can teleport up to 10 feet to a space that you can see. This space must be inside the reach of the creature that attacked you.

Void domain

1st levelGuarded Mind: You gain a +2 insight bonus on saving throws against all mind-affecting effects.

8th levelPart the Veil: You can lace spells you cast with the raw madness that waits in the outer darkness. Activating this ability is a swift action that you must use as you cast a spell that targets a single creature and that allows a Will saving throw to negate or reduce the spell’s primary effect. If the target fails to resist the spell, the target is also confused (as the spell) for a number of rounds equal to the spell’s level as visions of the void cause temporary insanity. The victim may attempt a new saving throw each round as a free action to resist the effect for that round only — these additional saving throws apply only to the additional confusion effect and not to the original spell effect. Part the veil is a mind-affecting effect. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 12 your class level.

Alternate domain powers:

1st levelIt Came from Beyond: Once per day, when you cast a summoning spell, any one creature you summon is more powerful than normal. The creature gains the advanced creature simple template. If you summon more than one creature with a spell, only one of the summoned creatures gains the advanced creature simple template. A summoned creature that gains the advanced creature simple template in this manner appears unnervingly deformed or unnaturally hideous, bringing with it a whiff of the emptiness of the void. This ability works only on spells you cast as a cleric — it does not work on spellcasting abilities gained from any other spellcasting classes you might have.

8th levelAura of Isolation (Sp): As a standard action, you can create a 20-foot aura that causes enemies within to be overcome with feelings of isolation and loss. Your enemies treat the aura as difficult terrain, as they become sluggish within its area of effect. Furthermore, while within the aura, your enemies cannot provide flanking, nor can they use or benefit from the aid another action. The aura lasts for a number of rounds equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier, but the rounds need not be consecutive. This is a mind-affecting emotion effect. Maintaining this ability (in rounds after the first) is a free action.

8th levelThe Stars Are Right: If you prepare your cleric spells while the stars are visible to you, you may spontaneously cast any of your Void domain spells by swapping out a spell of an equal spell level. Any Void domain spell that you cast while the stars are visible to you heals you of an amount of hit point damage equal to the spell’s level; this effect happens as you cast the spell.

Spells

  1. feather fall
  2. hypnotic pattern, levitate
  3. fly
  4. confusion, lesser planar binding
  5. contact other plane, overland flight
  6. planar binding

  9. interplanetary teleport, meteor swarm

War domain

You are proficient with your deity’s favored weapon.

1st levelBattle Rage (Sp): You can touch a creature as a standard action to give it a bonus on melee damage rolls equal to 12 your cleric level for 1 round (minimum +1). You can do so a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

8th levelWeapon Master: You gain the use of one combat feat for a number of rounds per day equal to your cleric level. These rounds do not need to be consecutive and you can change the feat chosen each time you use this ability. You must meet the prerequisites to use this feat.

Alternate domain powers:

1st levelSeize the Initiative: Whenever you and your allies roll for initiative, you can grant one ally within 30 feet the ability to roll twice and take either result. This decision is made before results are revealed. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

8th levelWounding Blade (Sp): You can make a piercing or slashing weapon you touch strike as a wounding weapon for a number of rounds equal to 12 your cleric level. You can use this ability once per day at 8th level, and an additional time per day for every four levels beyond 8th. At 14th level, this ability makes a touched weapon strike as a greater wounding weapon instead.

Spells

  1. true strike
  2. spiritual weapon
  3. magic vestment
  4. divine power
  5. flame strike
  6. blade barrier

Water domain

You gain the ability to speak Aquan, the language of water creatures.

1st levelSurge (Sp): As a standard action, you can cause a mighty wave to appear that pushes or pulls a single creature. Make a combat maneuver check against the target, using your cleric level + your Wisdom modifier as your CMB. If successful, you may pull or push the creature as if using the push or drag combat maneuver. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

6th levelDrench: Your touch can put out torches, campfires, exposed lanterns, and other open flames of nonmagical origin if these are of Large size or smaller. You can also dispel magical fire you touch as dispel magic (caster level equals to your cleric level). You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier. When used against a creature of fire (such as a fire elemental or an efreeti), this ability deals 1d6 points of damage per 2 levels; a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + one-half your cleric level + your Wisdom modifier) halves the damage. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Alternate domain powers:

1st levelFrigid Ray (Sp): As a standard action, you can fire ray of white crystalline motes from your finger, targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. The ray deals 1d6 points of cold damage, plus 1d6 additional points for every three cleric levels you possess past the 1st. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

1st levelWater Sight: You can see through fog and mist without penalty as long as there is enough light to allow you to see normally. At 7th level, you can use any calm pool of water at least 1 foot in diameter as a scrying device, as if using the scrying spell. At 15th level, this functions like greater scrying. (This scrying is a spell-like ability.) You can use the scrying abilities for a number of rounds per day equal to your cleric level, but these rounds do not need to be consecutive.

8th levelBody of Ice: You can transmute your body and equipment to ice for a period of time. It takes a standard action to take on the form of ice, and you can end the transmutation with a free action on your turn. When you take on the form of ice, you are immune to cold and have DR 5/—, but you take twice the normal amount of damage from fire. You can take on the form of ice for a number of rounds per day equal to your cleric level. The rounds need not be consecutive.

Weather domain

1st levelStorm Burst (Sp): As a standard action, you can create a storm burst targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. The storm burst deals 1d6 points of nonlethal damage, plus 1d6 additional points for every three cleric levels you possess past the 1st. In addition, the target is buffeted by winds and rain, causing it to take a −2 penalty on attack rolls for 1 round. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

6th levelCold Resistance: You gain resist cold 10. This resistance increases to 20 at 12th level, and to 30 at 18th level.

You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

8th levelDeadly Weather (Sp): You can unleash a furious call to the heavens, summoning forth an everchanging storm of destruction for a number of rounds per day equal to your cleric level (these rounds do not need to be consecutive). This storm has a radius of 5 feet per cleric level. Each round, the storm has one of the following effects: driving rain (−4 on all Perception checks and ranged attack rolls), howling winds (−8 on Fly skill checks and ranged attack rolls), heavy snow (all terrain is considered difficult), or lightning bolt (as call lightning). Other effects depending on the weather might also apply (at the GM’s discretion). You choose which effect takes place each round, but no effect may be repeated on the following round.

8th levelGale Aura (Sp): As a standard action, you can create a 30-foot aura of gale-like winds that slows the progress of enemies. Creatures in the aura cannot take a 5-foot step. Enemies in the aura treat all movement that brings them closer to you as movement through difficult terrain. They can move normally in any other direction. You can use this ability for a number of rounds per day equal to your cleric level. The rounds do not need to be consecutive. Maintaining this ability (in rounds after the first) is a free action.

8th levelLightning Lord (Sp): You can call down a number of bolts of lightning per day equal to your cleric level. You can call down as many bolts as you want with a single standard action, but no creature can be the target of more than one bolt and no two simultaneous targets can be more than 30 feet apart. This ability otherwise functions as call lightning. At 14th level, this ability otherwise functions as call lightning storm.
