Default [DF/DFRPG] Holy Might! Or, I think I just noticed something...

Holiness adds to Heroic Feats attribute rolls.

Heroic Feats says "Holiness doesn't add to the rolls for bonus size or duration."

I think. So ... does this add to the Stat boost? Or is this an error?

Is 'bonus size' suppose to be 'bonus attributes'? Or is the Holy Warrior supposed to get bigger?


Noting only three abilities are listed under Holy Might, and all three call out how Holiness applies to them:

Detect Good: "Holiness benefits the Perception roll for detection and the the IQ roll for extra detail."

Heroic Feats: "Holiness doesn't add to the rolls for bonus size or duration."

Resist Evil: "Holiness has no effect on this ability."

It's Resist Evil's writing that suggests to me that Heroic Feats should be effected in some way...

...Bonus size would surely mean the size of the bonus.

Okay... that's an awkward way of writing it. Instead of just "Holiness has no effect on this ability."

Ugh. I was hoping I'd finally found a decent use for the ability.

There are additional Holy Might abilities listed with Clerics, but Holy Warriors are allowed them as well.

Holy smokes, I missed that line DFRPG! That makes Holiness almost worth it (If you are picking up those abilities and not say going the Heroic Feats and Higher Purpose* route).

In fact... having Contingency Casting alone makes Holiness worth it. That is nice combo.
