From publisher blurb:
“It is no blessing I confer upon you, but rather a plea,” the priest said, beginning to apply ceremonial markings to Evelyn's arm. The brown dyes smelled of tea, but the scent drifted away as her focus tightened on the priest's words.
“I plea that you deliver light to a world where often it bleeds out,” He began just below her shoulder.
“I plea that those whom you offer help will see this light in both you and themselves,” The design began to coil around her arm.
“And I plea that the sacrifices you'll make in the name of good will not diminish your own light.” The priest somberly concluded. He lifted the brush from Evelyn's arm, revealing the ornate chain which now marked her skin. She closed her eyes, and instead of the temple she'd always known, she stood atop a precipice, seeing above her rusty skies and legions of the damned below.
Paladins swearing the Oath of Conscription wild the powers of a bound(and often unwilling) fiendish host in the name of the greater good. While wielding these powers, paladins may take on more demonic traits, and find themselves in the path of temptation by the forces of evil. Whether your character rises above or succumbs to this temptation will be a true test of character.
