Which actually fits with the lead shot hammer mentioned above.
Though I still have my doubts abut its effectiviness.

In particular, a Holy Warrior of Love and Fertility can be downright terrifying, especially with a few levels of Blessed (Heroic Feats).
A most unusual Holy Warrior of Love and Fertility build there.

Actually, the option is carefully built into the relevant section in DF7.

I think people are deceived by the euphemisms. They picture the deity of Love and Fertility as a sweet teenage girl surrounded by fluffy bunnies or something. The God of Rape and Slave Breeding has essentially the same domain, probably comes closer to half the real world gods of this sort, and likely regards this S&M stuff as playful silliness.

Kore (daughter of Zeus and Demeter) is the fluffy bunny teenager. Demeter was more motherly (and more of an agriculture/harvest goddess anyway). And let's not get into fertility goddesses who are also war goddesses (Ishtar, Freyja, that Aztec gal...).

You know what else this is great for? My current Dark*Matter conspiracy/Monster Hunters" game! Mwahahahaha!

Edit: Okay, the diabolical whips alone are worth the $5. A 7-foot long, barbed diabolical whip "cracked" by a Strong Demon does hellish damage (heh): 5d+10 cr. LOL.

I also kind of love the idea of a fine, quicksilver all-metal great axe: sw+4 cut base damage, +1 for fine, x1.5 for quicksilver = sw+7 cut. The ST 21 barbarian with such a weapon does 4d+6 cut. How fun is that??

Kali. Destroyer of evil forces, divine mother of the universe.

Sekhmet, the lioness. Warrior goddess, protector of women giving birth

Wait wait wait...

What's better than Fantasy-Tech giant swords and double-wide blades? ULTRA Tech giant swords and double-wide blades.

Let's see, ST 30 for the Wide Sword is really no problem for power armor. Let's make that a superfine vibrowire wide sword...

sw+8 cut base --> sw+2d+8(10) cut @ ST 30 = 7d+10(10) cut.

That'll get through DR 300...

The relevant section in DF7 is supposed to make that sort of point clear, if people have read it. Though I was thinking more of "vice" than "sexual violence". The Goddess of Negotiable Affection has a pretty substantial worshipper base, after all.
