Thread: Bacon of Hope

  1. #1

    Bacon of Hope

    OK, this is silly but: Am I the only one that continuously reads "Beacon of Hope" as "Bacon of Hope"?

    I would like to make a power that more appropriately reflects the sizzling fat aspect of clerical magic. Any ideas? I this an attack or more a utility power? Is it daily (breakfast) or only for weekends?

    --Utility, obviously; it's Bacon of Hope, not Bacon of Burning Thine Enemies.

    --Encounter. Don't tell me you've never had bacon for a meal other than breakfast.

    --Details...hmm. I'll think about it and get back to you.

    What's ironic is that I actually read the thread title as Beacon of Hope and not Bacon of Hope and was confused when you started talking about bacon.

    Bacon of Hope
    Cleric Attack 1

    A burst of divine grease from sizzling celestial boar meat burns your foes.
    The radiant, delicious smell lingers around your holy symbol and improves
    party morale and your healing powers for the rest of the battle.
    Daily *
    Divine, Healing, Implement
    Standard Action Close
    burst 3

    Target:
    Each enemy in burst

    Attack:
    Wisdom vs. Will

    Hit:
    The target is weakened until the end of its next turn, distracted by the heavenly aroma.

    Effect:
    You and all your allies in the burst regain 5 hit points,
    and your healing powers restore +5 hit points until the end

    of the encounter.
    Special: You find enough finely cooked celestial bacon at the end of the encounter to constitute a short rest.

    Heck, we could make this a running cleric build. How about...

    Blazing Bacon
    Cleric Attack 3

    You invoke the most holy of meats, and your weapon sizzles and crackles. When you strike your foe, a blazing strip of bacon burns its way into the foe's forehead, guiding your allies' attacks with its divine aroma.
    Encounter * Divine, Radiant, Weapon
    Standard Action Melee
    weapon

    Target:
    One creature

    Attack:
    Strength vs. AC

    Hit:
    1[W] + Strength modifier radiant damage, and all
    ranged attack rolls against the target gain a +4 power bonus

    until the end of your next turn. The target gains no concealment for becoming invisible as your and your allies can track it by scent alone.

    Meanwhile, Clerics of Veganism must take the "Fakin' Bacon" feat in order to use these powers.

    Incidentally, since bacon is primarily a breakfast food, I think they should be daily powers. Unless of course you're counting second breakfast, elevensies, etc.

    You've never had a BLT? A bacon cheeseburger? I agree with the person above...Encounter powers, definitely.

    Shouldn't this do fire damage from the sizzling fat grease?
