Priest of Lathander is one of the three class kits to Cleric. Characters choosing this kit option devote themselves to worshipping Lathander, the Morninglord and are restricted to taking an good alignemnt.

As general rule, cleric kits gain two bonus wizards spells each without any added penalties compared to the base class, so it is generally advisable to always choose a kit that suits your alignment preferences over the vanilla Cleric class.

The Priest of Lathander is able to heal others and one of the four classes which can cast priest spells. They can wear all kinds of armor, just like warriors, except mages robes, but their ethos prohibites them from using weapons and missiles with sharp points & edges and start with two weapon skill points fewer.

Turn undeadEdit

Priest and paladins have the ability turn undead creatures. When this mode is activated and undead creatures are in range of the character, there is a possibility they will stop attacking their targets and run away from the character until the effect is worn off.
