The Chosen of Vashanka, the God of War

Molin asks, <| So, you believe yourself worthy to join the Chosen of Vashanka? |> 
Molin looks you over.
Molin says, <| Well, I am not sure you are fit, but if you have enough money, perhaps.  An initiation tithe of fifteen thousand gold should suffice. |> 
Molin says, <| But he does not allow any of his flock to wield ordinary, unenchanted weapons, or weapons which do not pierce or cut. |> 
Molin says, <| You can leave at any time, but none of the gods of Sanctuary will accept you after that. |> 
Molin exclaims, <| You may worship here and become one of the Chosen of Vashanka! |> 
Molin exclaims, <| Vashanka treats his worshippers well! |> 
Molin says, <| Welcome to the Temple of Vashanka the Storm God. |> 
Vashanka grants each of his worshippers an amulet as a token of
their devotion and strength, through which his worshippers may call upon
his favor according to their stature.  Those who wear the amulet also
gain resistance to some forms of attack.

Vashanka is always seen in magical black and red armour, wielding
very formidable swords in either hand, exuding strength and power.  Vashanka
is known to be the eldest brother amongst the gods of Sanctuary.  He
considers both of his brothers cowards, and discourages association with
their followers.



Visit Molin in Vashanka's Temple off Temple Street in Sanctuary. Say "I wish to devote myself to Vashanka".

In order to join the Chosen of Vashanka, you require a high amount of strength relative to your racial maximum. You also need a tithe of 15000 gold.

Forbids specializing Scholarship, so conflicts with Aisenshi.

Molin says, <| The worship of Athena does not allow the veneration of Ares, so you cannot join the Chosen of Vashanka. |> to you.

Molin says, <| You cannot join the Chosen of Vashanka because you are a healer. |> to you.

Molin says, <| You specialize in scholarship, which is forbidden to Chosens of Vashanka. |>

Molin says, <| You may not worship Vashanka because you are a rogue |> (Brotherhood of Wine and Song and Warbreakers)

Molin says, <|As a White Maiden of the Coven, you could not become a warrior by joining the Chosen of Vashanka.|> (guess even though Halea says the White Maidens are warriors of the Coven, that is not good enough for Vashanka.)

Molin says, <| You specialize in torture, which is forbidden to Chosen of Vashanka. |> to you.

Molin says, <| You specialize in stealth, which is forbidden to Chosen of Vashanka. |> to you. This forbids Maidens of the Spear.

OZM can join if their scholarship isn't trained above 40 - it simply de-specs scholarship when you do so.
