Purity Domain[edit]

Purity Domain Clerics are devoted to wiping out abominations and creatures that would do harm to the citizens of the material plane. They are holy monster hunters. They are typically brutal and swift when dispatching the horrors of the night.

Holy Monster Hunters[edit]

Clerics who choose the path of Purity have one goal in mind: Purify the World of the Evil in it. They tend to have a closer connection to their Deities than your average Paladin. They commune with and rely on their Deities for guidance and protection when they go on a hunt. These are not your Crusaders in white armor seeking out glory to prove themselves. These are people who turned to their gods in their darkest moments. These are people of sacred orders who just want the world to be safe for one more night. They are lone wanderer's hunting evil wherever it raises its head. No matter what walk of life they come from all Purity Cleric are focused on Purifying the world.
