Basic (Faith) Traits

Abject Belief [Link]

Source Faiths and Philosophies pg. 0 (Amazon)
You cling tenaciously to a faith that is doubted by many, perhaps based around a god who has vanished, or was never a god in the first place. You refuse to forsake your beliefs despite all evidence, perhaps due to a need to belong, respect for tradition, or a religious experience. As a result, it is nearly impossible to convince you of your deity’s absence. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Will saving throws against fear effects.

Acolyte of Apocrypha [Link]

Source Divine Anthology pg. 22
Your religious studies hinged on teachings rarely recognized by your faith. You can select one of the apocryphal subdomains detailed below, provided the subdomain is associated with your patron deity. In some cases, you can select a subdomain associated with a deity despite that deity not offering the associated domain—these exceptions are noted with an asterisk (*), and you gain domain powers and domain spells from the associated domain as usual, even though your deity normally doesn’t grant access to that domain. When selecting a subdomain associated with two domains, a priest can choose only a subdomain that modifies a domain to which he has access. All deities referenced in the following subdomains appear in Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Inner Sea Gods or Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Dragon Empires Gazetteer: Alchemy (Artifice / Magic), Captivation, Hubris (Glory / Nobility), Insect, Legend, Lightning, Medicine, Monsoon, Petrification, Portal, Rites, Self-Realization (Liberation / Strength), Thirst, Thorns, or Truth.

In so doing, you have focused yourself into being the perfect vessel for your deity. Divine power flows through you like a mountain stream, making your healing touch more potent than that of others. You heal 1 additional point of damage when using lay on hands, channeling energy, or casting a cure spell.

Born Free [Link]

Source Faiths and Philosophies pg. 0 (Amazon)
You were introduced to an individualistic belief as a youth. Thriving under the promise of control of your own destiny, you soon began to demonstrate the truth of this ideal. Though others may mock you for your unwillingness to go along with a group or accept the easy security and comfort promised by more ecclesiastical faiths, you know that the revelations and destiny you seek can only be brought about through your own actions and individual search for meaning. Once per day, after you roll a saving throw against a compulsion effect, you can choose to roll again as an immediate action before the result of the saving throw is announced. You must keep the new roll, even if it is worse.

Bound by Honor [Link]

Source Faiths and Philosophies pg. 0 (Amazon)

Chosen of Iomedae [Link]

Source Champions of Purity pg. 13 (Amazon)

The goddess blessed you, granting you a gift of light to brighten your path through darkness and a fine sword with which to spread her will.

In addition, whenever light is cast upon this sword, the radius of light and its duration is doubled.

Crisis of Faith [Link]

Source Faiths and Philosophies pg. 0 (Amazon)
You were raised to uphold a specific set of tenets, and you never had reason to doubt their veracity. Recent events, however, have undermined that certainty, and you now find yourself wondering if any of the universal truths you once believed in can actually hold up to scrutiny. Perhaps you witnessed a mentor or church official fall from grace or violate your shared tenets. Maybe you watched a friend injured terribly despite (or because of ) her pure faith. Whatever the case, your shaken confidence grants you a +1 trait bonus on saving throws against illusions. You may replace any other faith trait with the Crisis of Faith trait whenever you gain a level. This replacement is permanent until you receive atonement.

Devout Visionary [Link]

Source Faiths and Philosophies pg. 0 (Amazon)
As a child, you had a strange vision while suffering from a terrible illness, and only found your way back to the mundane world by following the call of a spiritual leader—perhaps a shaman’s drum or a druid’s lilting poetry. Since then, you have studied symbolism and dreams in the hope that you might understand your own vision, though your lessons prove just as helpful to others.

Divine Denier [Link]

Source Faiths and Philosophies pg. 0 (Amazon)
You can’t bring yourself to accept the authority of the gods, even though friends might hound you relentlessly to change your ways.

Once per day when you are affected by a divine spell, you may reduce that spell’s duration to half (minimum 1 round) for you alone.

Ease of Faith [Link]

Source Ultimate Campaign pg. 54 (Amazon), Advanced Player's Guide pg. 1 (Amazon), Second Darkness Player's Guide pg. 12 (Amazon)

Empyreal Pantheon [Link]

Source Distant Shores pg. 23
Your faith in the empyreal lords accommodates numerous gods, and you are gifted at adapting their wide variety of focuses and lessons to your own life.

You aren’t just faithful to the worship of your patron deity—you are obsessively loyal to all of the faith’s tenets and guidelines.

You gain a +2 bonus on Diplomacy and Intimidate checks when dealing with adherents of your faith or philosophy, but a –1 penalty on Diplomacy and Intimidate checks when dealing with anyone else.
