Players roll a d20 to see if their Devotion to their cause/god has granted them a buff.

On a long rest, player can devote their free time to devoting themselves to their cause.
1 | Player fucking dies for being such a failure to their cause (game breaking debuff)
2-5 | Player has a chance of a debuff of the DM's choosing
6-14 | Nothing happens
15-19 | Player receives a random buff of DM's choosing
20 | Player receives an overpowered buff bound to break the DM's game

Should players falter, it's up to their DM if they are to get a debuff, and/or disadvantage on their next devotion.

Some suggested buffs:
  • advantage on rolls (can be a set number)
  • advantage on rolls related to their cause/god
  • plot armor
  • attacks deal increased/double damage
  • Devotion related attacks deal increased/double damage
  • Enemies of their cause receive debuffs/disadvantage against player
Essentially all debuffs are the reverse of buffs
