- * Do not need to be the same alignment as their parent deity. Demigods are mortals and can be estranged from their parents views.
That being said… This Adventure Path is not specifically designed for a evil game, if an individual player you chooses to be evil that doesn’t mean you can act like a complete jerk and disrupt the game. You’re still playing a roleplaying game where you are a cooperative player in a campaign with a defined goal. You need to come to the table with a character that fits with the themes of the campaign, the character must want to be in a pantheon and can work with the other PC’s in the game.
- The collective alignment of the Pantheon by which members must abide. This is based on the player characters alignments.
- Specials: Combined feats (ask if interested)
Based on your parent Deity sphere of influence you will gain a Descender bloodline.
As a standard action a demigod may manifest a part of his divine power as a powerful blast targeting any foe within 10 feet per die of damage as a ranged touch attack. This ability manifests in the form of something that fits the god’s description, be it water, fire, acid, or blades. The play is encouraged to be very descriptive with this ability. The ability can do any form of energy or melee damage. A demigod can only use one type of blast, so once the choice is made it is set and cannot be changed. A demigod may apply his Wisdom modifier to the damage inflicted by this ability. The damage inflicted by this ability does 1d6 damage, plus 1d6 more damage every odd class level. Each day you can use this ability a number of times equal to 1/2 your character level plus her Charisma modifier.
A demigod is not quite human, and therefore gains proficiency with his divine parent’s favorite weapon, and gains Weapon Focus as a bonus feat with that weapon.
Ability Score Increase
Upon reaching 2nd level, an ability score of your choice permanently increases by 2. At 4th, 6th, 8th, etc.. another ability score of your choice permanently increases by 2; this has to be an ability score you’ve have not already increased.

Hard to Kill
They gain a +5 racial bonus on Constitution checks to stabilize when dying and add half their character level to their Constitution score when determining the negative hit point total necessary to kill them.
Innate Divine Spellcasting
