My choice of my first high priest was long in coming in part because I wanted to be sure of the person wielding my power in my stead. Jhor has been made aware of what I consider offensive both directly and indirectly and I actively monitor his exercis

e of his power. Were he to be attacked in his sanctuary under the same circumstances you describe, I would certainly find him in the right.

If he misuses his power, he is very clear that I will correct him. Of course, he also knows that his exercise of my power may anger other gods and he may be singled out for punishment by them.

When the other deities are unhappy with the actions of my followers, they have been quick to address those complaints to me. As I have not heard any by this time, I am assuming that my brethern trust that my corrective measures will suffice and that t

he wild rumours of threats I have heard are baseless.

As many complaints as mortals may have about high priests, they should remember that in the end, the final judgement is by their patron's criteria and none other, and the punishment for a high priest's actions is to be borne by the high priest alone.
