Deacon πŸ“Ώ

A page detailing the Deacon role within Medieval Discord and their convert and preach commands.


The Deacon is the first rank of the threefold Christian ministry and is the governor of their respective diaconate, the smallest subdivision of the Catholic authority. Within larger settlements like Rosewood, a single church might have multiple diaconates, all presided by a Deacon, in service to their Parish Priest. However, in smaller settlements, like ones that only have one, a diaconate is synonymous with a parish, and the title is a transitionary period between Scribes and Priests. Deacons are not considered fully ordained priests and therefore their abilities are limited by law.

The convert command is accessible to anyone with at least 4 Intelligence, meaning anyone can convert people to the faith of their own character. However, only the Clergy can convert people to Catholicism.

In-depth guide:

Deacons are the lowest rank within the Preachment route. They inherit every Scribe command and earn a couple of new ones as well. They are basically unordained priests with a few responsibilities including administering the sacraments of Baptism and the Eucharist, while also delivering sermons, excluding Mass, and they oversee burials and funerals.
