HOW THE INVOCATION SYSTEM WORKS:
Patron deity is chosen at character creation. Each character begins play with 10 invocation points. Whenever a character invokes, they gain 1 invocation point. A character loses one invocation point at the end of each day, two points if they did not invoke that day. Maximum invocation points is capped at 15. Invocation points measure favor with the patron deity and determine the blessings they bestow upon your character:
At 5 points, the character begins receiving Ardent coins each time they invoke. At 10 points the character gains the 1st blessing in the list above. At 15 points the character also receives the 2nd blessing in the list above.
Patron deity can be changed at any time by donating 5 gold to Aralynn at the campfire in Protector's Enclave. After switching, invocation points are set to zero. NOTE: The current items in the Ardent coin store should have their costs cut in half. A few new items should be added to it.
