A while ago, I saw a post where there was discussion of modifying the Priest class to be an arcane class to make more focused arcane characters.  I cannot find it, though.  Can anyone point me to it, or does anyone have something like this already worked out?

Just add Arcane paths and Alignments, I would think.  Hrm... Tauster the Fire Mage from Night Below - come on down!  You're the next contestant on "The Mods are Right"!

Take an Alignment and Spell Conversion: Alignment.

I've often thought that in a Conan-style game I'd be inclined to have Priests be the only spellcasting path, but not necessarily be particularly religious.

If you'd rather have a cleric than a priest, you could switch out Path of the Devoted for Circle of Power, then put Path of the Devoted in where the bonus feats are.  Make Acolyte a core ability and give them Subtle and Quick to Anger at first level.

You only get 5 steps along your paths doing it that way.

I'm more interested in making the Priest class a non-religious, focused, arcane caster class that doesn't gain circle of power or its equivalent.  Something like an Aeromancer who specializes in Travel and Air, but who doesn't focus completely on casting spells.  I'm trying to come up with good ideas for swapping out some of the other Priest class abilities that are focused around religion.  If I could come up with replacement abilities related to the various Paths, it would be even better.  The problem is that I've seen some of the subtleties of game balance in Fantasy Craft and don't want to inadvertently break anything.

That isn't exactly what I was looking for, but I'm going to steal that, too.  Smiley  Thanks!
