11.3.2 Communion

(See also: HELP ORDERS, HELP SECTS, HELP CULTS)

Communion
---------
When essence is given to the Patron of an order, through offering or conversion, your own personal pool of Communion grows. This pool can be used to favor or disfavor members of your Sect, or beseech your Patron for their favor (HELP GODFEELINGS). You may BESEECH FAVOR to earn the favor of your God. The strength and length of the favor will depend upon your current communion.

Communion is gained by making offerings to your Patron's shrines and by converting denizens to the beliefs of your God.

Converting Denizens
-------------------
Members of Cults and Sects may try to convert denizens to the worship of their God, provided they do not already worship another God. Each denizens has a unique personality and mood that changes over time, and affects the arguments to which they are susceptible. You must determine the correct sequence of arguments to make in order to convert the denizen to your God's faith. Converting a denizen will result in gaining both communion and experience.

Failure to convince the denizen to follow your God within a relatively short period of time will result in the loss of experience and communion, as well as making the denizen hostile to all Gods for a time.

Syntax: CONVERT <mob> WITH <[PONTIFICATION|PREACHING|EVANGELIZING|PROSELYTIZING]>
