Ordained mortals are those that have been specially blessed by their god to carry out that Immortal's will and to protect the interests of the following. All Immortal-led followings may have one ordained mortal, if the Immortal and prospective mortal meets the requirements. Mortals MAY NOT QUEST FOR IMMORTALITY WHILE ORDAINED. Instead, it will be necessary to be released from ordained service.
Any race may be an Ordained Mortal if the mortal otherwise meets the requirements.

You cannot select the ordained class during the character creation process. Rather, to gain this class you must not be triple-classed and you must be chosen by your immortal to be one of their ordaineds. Each immortal can have a limited number of ordaineds at one time, that number being dependent on how powerful the immortal is. The abilities of an ordained vary somewhat depending on whether their immortal is Good, Evil, or Neutral. If you are interested in learning more about ordaineds, read the files listed under HELP ORDAINED.
Rumor and Speculation
Preparing Your Classes for Ordained
If you want to be ordained, your MAGIC casting class should be prime. (If you have two classes, it will be the one to the left). This is because your classes switch around when you Ordain. Your Magic Class will then shift to the right, and your combat class will become your Prime class.
The benefits of this are to ensure that you have your combat class strength or dex while in Ordained. For example: If your combat class is Ranger, you will have Ranger dex (39 items held) and 725kg str from Ordained. If your combat class is Warrior, you will have 925 str from Warrior, and 38 items held from Ordained dex.
