Valor

The gods of valor are those stalwarts who uphold bravery and courage as the highest of virtues. The world of mortals is a place of great danger, and these deities call upon their faithful to stand in the face of it defiantly. Deities of heroes and valiant defenders may teach their champions to never quail in the face of danger, while deities of war, battle, or strength have no use for those who give in to fear. Clerics of these deities can often be found rallying others to find their own grit, standing as examples in the face of even overwhelming odds.

An Act of Bravery

Many clerics of this domain first hear the call of the divine in the midst of an act of unprecedented courage, even in the face of great danger to themselves. What was your defining moment of bravery?

Acts of Bravery
d6 Act
1 You stood against tyrants, bullies, and others who sought to dominate or conquer you and yours.
2 You defended your family against deadly odds or foes.
3 You protected someone weaker against a tormentor or assailant.
4 You organized an insurrection or rebellion against an oppressor of some kind.
5 You rallied others in battle, calling them to find their bravery.
6 You rescued bystanders from a disaster, accident, or other potential tragedy.

Bonus Proficiencies

At 1st level, you gain proficiency with martial weapons and heavy armor.

Stalwart

Starting at 1st level, you gain immunity to the frightened condition. Additionally, you gain advantage on saving throws against spells whose effects are described as coming from fear or terror, such as phantasmal killer.

Channel Divinity: Overthrow Fear

Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity to instill bravery in the fearful. As an action, you present your holy symbol and evoke blessings of valor in those around you. Choose any creatures within 30 feet of you who can hear you. Creatures affected by the frightened condition are no longer affected by it. All affected creatures become immune to the frightened condition for the next minute.

During that time, a creature may choose as a reaction to sacrifice its immunity to gain advantage on any single saving throw.
