Hierophant Path Abilities: divine guardian, faith’s reach, inspired spell An ancient high priestess is a throwback to the old faiths that have endured despite the relentless advance of technology.

She may be truly ancient herself, a survivor from an age gone by, or may be the young receptacle of the collective wisdom of the ancestors and the spirit world beyond.
