Most recently, a comet announced the Norman invasion in 1066, but comets also preceded the coming of Arthur and the death of Julius Caesar. A comet may have a very elaborate shape, appearing as a dragon, or even a mounted warrior. They normally move across the sky at almost the same speed as the sun, and are visible for several days. Sometimes, however, they move more quickly, and appear more briefly. The brighter and longer-lasting the comet, the more important the event it portends.

A priest may prepare and cast any spell on the cleric spell list which is not Evil. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a priest’s spell is 10 + the spell’s level + the priest’s Wisdom modifier. Priests prepare their spells by performing a full Mass. This takes approximately one hour, although it can be done in half that time if the priest hurries. It can also take much longer, if desired. A priest who hurried Mass every day would soon fall into disrespect for God, and thus into sin. The priest’s class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Heal (Wis), Knowledge (all skills, taken individually) (Int), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), and Spellcraft (Int).

The professed knights were required to wear plain clothing, although they were granted white vestments with a red cross to mark their purity. This formalization, and the enthusiastic support of the Church and nobility, set the Order on a course of growth and influence that would last nearly two centuries.
