River clerics consider it their sacred duty to offer services to river-goers, whether by acting as guides for unexperienced travelers or by ferrying individuals across rivers. While accompanying travelers on their river journeys, river clerics make sure to educate the uninitiated their ancient goddess’s divine doctrine.

River clerics expect to be paid for their services just as any other guide or ferryman. Unlike others who perform similar functions, however, river clerics use nearly all of their income to fund their deity’s church. A river cleric never turns down a job unless she feels it clearly violates her deity’s code of conduct (such as obstructing or defiling the river or acting against the interests of the pharaoh and his loyal subjects). Even when not ferrying clients, a river cleric can be found traveling along the river, offering her goddess’s insight and blessings to the loyal subjects of the reigning pharaoh.
