Description

There are currently several members of the Discworld pantheon that a player can worship. As far as becoming a priest or a worshipper of one of these gods is concerned, the starting point is going to the high altar in the relevant temple and praying to the god. If you have the correct alignment, you'll be accepted as a worshipper (obviously you mustn't be currently worshipping any other god). Wizards and witches already know that Gods exist, but have no truck with worshipping them. Witches and wizards then may not adopt a deity.

If you then wish to become a priest (given that you are not a member of any guild already), you should make your way to the guild room in the temple, through the door which won't let those who either don't worship the god or who have the wrong alignment pass, and join as normal. Priests are taught rituals and commands by the instructor as appropriate to their skills, similarly some deities will grant limited rituals and commands to their worshippers.

Currently, the worshippable gods are, in no particular order:

GodWorshipper rituals
Fish, God of Sea CreaturesBreathe Underwater, Splash
Gapp, God of Fine ClothingCool, Mend
Gufnork, God of FluffCure Light Wounds, Summon Fluff
Hat, Vulture-Headed God of Unexpected GuestsDark Sight, Warm
Pishe, Goddess of Slight ShowersPishe does not accept non-priest followers.
Sandelfon, God of CorridorsCalm, Detect Alignment
Seven-Handed SekLight, Parch

It is possible (albeit difficult and time-consuming) to renounce your faith. For more information check 'help supplication'.
