I went for it.
We were checking out an old abandoned church of Ilmater, and I felt like Ilmater’s whole deal would have resonated pretty strongly with my character, especially given certain details and specifics at the time, so I had my character do a bit of soul searching between sessions. when we came back, she decided to take the oath she found in the book to become a disciple of Ilmater, and I spent a level I’d been holding onto for a few sessions because I wasn’t quite sure what to do with.
I’m now a 5 Barbarian 1 Sorcerer. Haven’t cast anything yet, so I’m thinking that as of right now, my character “doesn’t know it yet”. Should also give me more time to really make sure I choose my spell list carefully, since I heard sorcerers can only change their spells by taking another sorc level.
Any suggestions? 4 cantrips and 2 level-1 spells from either the Sorcerer or Cleric spell lists. Ostensibly these spells were gifted by Ilmater, so they’d probably have a certain lean to them.
Honestly the whole “you can’t change them unless you take another level” thing has me kinda afraid to pick them myself. I’ve never actually played a caster before in D&D so I don’t have a lot of familiarity with the spells and what’s good or bad.
