Fedhas is the god of plant and fungal life. Followers are forbidden from harming any species under Fedhas' protection. In return Fedhas grants a number of abilities that promote the growth of plant and fungi. These abilities may incidentally prove useful to adventurers.

Plants and fungi will not attack Fedhas' worshippers without provocation. Fedhas' worshippers may walk through plants or fungi, and even fire missiles or spells through them without causing harm. Fedhas grants powers to temporarily grow a menagerie of plant allies whose strength and duration increase with Invocations skill. Worshipers may grow a protective wall of briar patches as well as ballistomycetes that fire damaging spores whose explosions confuse living creatures. Devout followers can overgrow a stretch of solid terrain with a cluster of plant allies or even summon a mighty oklob plant.

Fedhas likes it when you kill living beings, you destroy the undead, you kill demons, you kill holy beings and you destroy nonliving beings.

Fedhas dislikes it when you destroy plants.

Racial restrictions

Demigods are also unable to worship Fedhas (or any other god).

Punishments

Fedhas does not appreciate abandonment, and will call down fearful punishments on disloyal followers!

It is Fedhas's considered opinion that offenders against the natural order (Fedhas) simply need more exposure to nature to realize the error of their ways. Accordingly, Fedhas provides said nature, in the form of pure elemental destruction, waves of giant spores rising from nearby corpses, and, for the truly incorrigible, surrounding rings of animate mushrooms and acid-spitting oklobs.

During penance, Fedhas will occasionally punish you with one of the following forms of divine retribution:

  • The elements will be invoked against you. This equates to a random Ice Magic, Earth Magic, Fire Magic, or Air Magic miscast.
  • Hostile plants (biased towards oklobs) will grow around you. This effect will only happen when abandoning Fedhas, never when simply under penance.
  • Corpses in line of sight will produce hostile spores.
  • All previously neutral or allied plants will also turn hostile upon abandonment or excommunication.

Strategy

  • Along with improving your ability success rate, improving Invocations also improves the HD of your summons. In general, this increases HP and damage, although for oklob plants it increase fire speed instead of damage.
