Oracle

The Oracle Class is identical as far as the rules are concerned to the class of the same name found in the Pathfinder Advanced Players Guide, p42. You can also find the information on the class on the Pathfinder SRD Website

Oracles of Tulun: Selected by the Gods for reasons their benefactors rarely choose to explain, Oracles obtain divine power without any choice in the matter. Where a Cleric, Paladin or Witch might devote themselves to a God or ideal, an Oracle finds themselves imbued with strange powers whether they care for them or not and are usually required to cope with them as best they can or slip into despair and madness. On a rare occasion a God or Goddess may appear to an Oracle but will do so at a time of their choosing, if at all, and more often confuse things than answer questions that so haunt the Oracle. An Oracle of Ki is a rare thing, but not unheard of, and they lack even the possibility of truly understanding their purpose, being able to only guess why they have the powers they are granted, and need to choose their own path without any way of knowing if what they are doing is right. Such individuals are often highly individualistic and independent, seeking to understand their purpose for being.

Oracles of Enotia: With such an established Clergy in place in Enotia, Oracles struggle with their acceptance among the divine casters as Sorcerers do the arcane. Considered to have “no place” and freaks of nature, most are looked upon with fear and superstition by the common folk who have lived under the guidance of The Church for so very long. The Church themselves see them as an inconvenience as they are not regulated, but cannot try them for heresy as they might do so with witches because they seem to have a connection with The Twelve.

Oracles of Kajir: Oracles in Kajir are respected and not especially feared, considered to be individuals blessed by chance. As the individual is so important to the Kajir way of life, most respect others based on their merits and deeds rather than their origins or events that have shaped their life. In that manner, Oracles have been chosen for a purpose and from a Kajirans’ point of view, what they do with that gift is the important part, not necessarily that they have such a gift.

Oracles of Mor-Denoch: Oracles in Mor-Denoch are treated with suspicion, but not outright hostility. While the Clerics do not like the fact they have a spontaneous connection with divine magic (specifically not trained by them), they know that keeping them isolated as individuals limits their power. Though discouraged from working with one another, Oracles in Mor-Denoch are often allowed to live out their lives and explore their natures so long as it does not endanger The Elder Council or The Clerics.

Oracles of Midian: These conduits of divine power are seen as a necessary evil within Midian. While their power and usefulness is undeniable, they lack the reliability and predictability that is expected in Midian. While they are more numerous among the uncivilised denizens of the empire, there are a worrying number within the Hobgoblins too. It would appear that despite the fact that the Hobgoblins do not believe in the gods, the gods believe in them.

Oracles of Omishiru: Oracles are somewhat of an oddity in Omishiru. The people of the East tend to follow Ki and while they accept that the Gods exist they do not give them the same veneration as others do, instead they assume them to be another form of very powerful spirit. For an Oracle to make sense to them they prefer to see them as agents of these powerful beings and treat them as they would any ambassador or messenger; with respect and courtesy so long as they don’t move against Imperial Decree. For their own part most Oracles in Omishiru struggle with the thought of being chosen by a “God” who they never worshiped in the first place.
