In my previous post about adapting the VAM rules to use in my Rose of Westhaven game I created some generic options for a magic-user miscast table and outlined some of the circumstances where it would be used. In this post I use the same ideas for Clerics, the difference being that the table represents a Cleric’s patron deity either becoming offending at their hubris or seeking to test their worth.
In VAM each spell has specific flavoured results when your 1D12 rolled a 1-6 on the miscast table, my version for magic-users used traditional spells from the LOTFP corebook and I didn’t want to write results for each spell, it occurred to me however that this could be used in a different way for Clerics. What if results 1-6 weren’t tailored by spells but by deity?
Below you can find screenshots of the general Cleric miscast table and a specific one I have tailored to Dagon, the patron deity of the Cleric Odhran in our Rose of Westhaven game.
