Aside from the well-known fact that being a champion of Valp or Mort results in goodies, I vaguely recall that being a champion of Cleptia gives Your guy a greater chance of succesfuly disarming his foes with whips of thievery.

I couldn't find any ancient records on being a champion of any other deity (even though I was Mellis' main man once, I didn't notice anything), but has anyone got any info?

The more Cleptia likes you, the more likely you are to disarm with thievery. I think there is nothing special about being the champion.

The same for Scabies and chameleon whip.

I was Mellis' champion as well, and noticed nothing unusual. It was really easy as well. I just read 4 of his books, and sacrificed 2 golden stones to him xD

If you pray to Loricatus while being his champion you get a adamantine thunder hammer... It's the LIVAN version though

I usually get champed by Loricatus when playing, and I've never gotten anything special from him aside from angels, but I play .50, haha.

That's not a very good champion gift considering CVS has a named zombie with a valpurium hammer. Not sure if it spawns at all though...

Kyle's right; same here - I got champed by Loricatus a couple of times and didn't notice anything extraordinary.

I think he can just about always give You an adamantine thunder hammer, the odds just higher proportionally to his stance to the char.

I like being champed by Loricatus early in the game because he seems to be more likely to repair or improve my weapons and armor. This is before I get high enough INT to SoCM things though.

Is his ability to harden weapons affected by anything to do with your character, or the material it's made out of? Because I find early in the game, even with him being very happy, he can't even harden a nymph hair whip.

He'll only harden the iron chain of materials.

Loricatus once hardened my hammer into adamantium Eeeearly-game. I think it was like the second time I came to Attnam and prayed out of habit just to increase my favor. I don't think I have a screenshot, though. BUT I SWEAR IT'S TRUE!
