Non-good god blocking Beogh's smite?

I was spending some time destroying orcish idols (don't ask) and I happened to destroy one that caused Beogh to evidently try to smite me but the smite was blocked by Okawaru (or so Okawaru claimed to me). This was a bit surprising, as we know Okawaru does not routinely block damage as do the "good" gods. I haven't been able to re-create the effect as of yet and I was wondering if anyone else knows anything about this. Is it dependent on piety with your god? Is any god capable of blocking Beogh's smite on their behalf? Sorry, as I know this is pretty tangential to anything useful in the game, but it piqued my curiosity. --Buddy23Lee (talk) 00:50, 17 August 2015 (CEST)

It says here that your new god may protect you from beogh-wrath smiting (piety/4 % chance), maybe it works the same here --Fingolfin (talk) 09:14, 17 August 2015 (CEST)
Brilliant! Exactly what it must have been. Funny that I was neither under "penance or following desertion", but I can't imagine many editors would assume one might be purposefully seeking Beogh's wrath through a campaign of idol desecration. You're a gentleman and a scholar Fingolfin. Do let me know if you have any articles or projects I can help out with. --Buddy23Lee (talk) 09:47, 17 August 2015 (CEST)
Haha thanks for the offer, but I only edit the wiki to correct inaccuracies here and there as I discover them, I don't really have any projects per se. However if you've got projects you're working on I'd be happy to help. -- Fingolfin (talk) 17:07, 17 August 2015 (CEST)
