Obedience

Spend an hour meditating on something you’ve learned and whispering hypotheses and possibilities based upon that fact. Additionally, once per week, you must perform an act you’ve never done before and that society holds as taboo—usually involving eating or drinking something unsavory. You can attempt a saving throw to disbelieve any illusion you come within 10 feet of, and you gain a +4 bonus on Will saving throws to disbelieve illusions.

Boons - Deific Obedience

Evangelist

Source Pathfinder #107: Scourge of the Godclaw pg. 73
1: Taboo Breaker (Sp) remove fear 3/day, touch of idiocy 2/day, or water breathing 1/day
2: Heresy Speaker (Su) Once per day, you can speak an incredible heresy. This functions as per dictum, but affects even creatures of lawful alignment. You can choose what creatures to exclude from this ability’s effects.
3: Poison Tongue (Su) Your words become poison. As a standard action, while you’re speaking, you can choose to poison any number of creatures that can hear your voice. The creatures must each succeed at a Fortitude saving throw (DC = 10 + your Charisma modifier + your Hit Dice) or be affected with muddling heresy (see the sidebar) with a frequency of 1/round for 2 rounds. You can attempt to poison any number of creatures per day equal to your Hit Dice. There is no evidence that your words are magical or envenomed, causing the venom to have no obvious source.

Exalted

Source Pathfinder #107: Scourge of the Godclaw pg. 73
1: Serpent Blood (Sp) reduce person 3/day, acid arrow 2/day, or beast shape III (reptiles only) 1/day
2: Venom Maw (Su) As an immediate action, you can cause your mouth to widen and grow a pair of long, venomous fangs. You gain a bite attack for 1 round. This is a primary natural attack that deals 1d8 points of piercing damage if you’re Medium or 1d6 points of damage if you’re Small. Any creature damaged by your attack must succeed at a Fortitude saving throw (DC = 10 + your Wisdom modifier + half your Hit Dice) or be affected by muddling heresy (see the sidebar). Additionally, once per hour, you can spit a stream of venom up to 30 feet. Any creature struck by this ranged attack must save against your poison as if it had been bitten.
3: Divine Insult (Su) A number of times per day equal to your Wisdom bonus, you can speak a specialized blasphemy against a single target. As a standard action, you shout shocking truths at the target. The target is affected as per heretic’s tongue (see page 72). If you successfully deny a divine spellcaster access to its class abilities, that target must succeed at a second saving throw at the end of the spell’s effect, whether shortened or not (DC = 10 + your Wisdom modifier + half your Hit Dice). If the target fails, its abilities do not return until it receives the benefits of an atonement spell.

Sentinel

Source Pathfinder #107: Scourge of the Godclaw pg. 73
1: Stygian Sentinel (Sp) summon nature’s ally I 3/day, bear’s endurance 2/day, or water breathing 1/day
2: Chain Coil (Su) When you successfully disarm an opponent using a heavy flail, your disarmed opponent immediately provokes an attack of opportunity from you. In addition, you gain a +2 bonus on any attacks of opportunity you make against opponents you have disarmed with a heavy flail within the last round. Additionally, the critical threat range of any heavy flail you wield increases by 1 (this increase stacks with that from the Improved Critical feat).
3: Coffin Feast (Su) Once per day, you can touch the corpse of a humanoid creature, affecting it as though it were the food and drink created by the spell heroes’ feast. The appearance of the corpse doesn’t change, but it miraculously provides enough sustenance to feed a number of creatures equal to your Hit Dice. Creatures that eat from this communal table, a process that takes 1 hour, gain a +2 profane bonus on attack rolls and Will saving throws instead of the usual +1 morale bonus. It also provides those who eat from the corpse with the benefits of the spell regenerate.
