11.2.5 ORDER AFFINITY

Most gods and goddesses belong to a Divine Pantheon of a city or commune. This establishes the affinity of a divine order. For example, if a god is in the Divine Pantheon of Hallifax, then that god's order has an affinity to Hallifax. Members who are aligned with their order's affinity (i.e., a citizen of that city or commune) will benefit their order. On the other hand, it is much harder on the order to maintain a member who is not so aligned with that order's affinity.

   as much essence.

Death

Note: The amount of essence also depends on how much power a member wields within his or her order.
