The lords of the Plane of Immortals send ripples throughout the mortal world from their shrines. Some being can feel there ripples while others can connect with them and seek out their shrines. Those that choose to follow become an initiate of one of the four immortal lords. As an initiate of an immortal lord they are granted a part of that lord in exchange for their services in the mortal world as well as the Plane of Immortals.
Initiates are those newly called sorcerers of an immortal lord and are tasks with assignments that their lord deems as menial. The initiates are devoted to their lord as an apprentice is to their master. Unlike the followers of Kinja the initiates do not seek to expand into an organized religion. Those devoted to an immortal lord must come to this path for their own accord. As initiates become stronger, their lord bestows greater power onto them and they become an acolyte.
Acolytes are given more responsibilities by their lord. They are often tasked with checking in on initiates in their area and assessing their progress. Other people throughout the world sometimes seek out acolytes in attempts to gain power or favor with their lord. If the lord accepts their proposal then a deal is made and someday the lord will send a cleric to ensure the deal is upheld. Assignments from their lord have a higher level of responsibility as an acolyte though like the initiates when between assignments they have free reign to operate as they please. When the acolyte has proven their worth a cleric to test them. The process normally takes multiple assessments before they are deemed ready to become a cleric.
Sorcerers who reach the rank of a cleric of their lord are sent on the most difficult assignments. Most of their assignments revolve around ensuring the deals made by acolytes were upheld. If the deals are not fulfilled the clerics are tasked with terminating the deal, fatally. Most clients are not fool enough to try and back out on a deal with one of the immortals. Clerics of the immortal lords often travel to the Plane of Immortals to aid their lord. Upon the death of a cleric, their essence is brought to the immortal plane and made immortals themselves.
Sorcerers are a light armor stealth class that summon arms. They draw on their devotion to deal magical damage to ranged targets and melee. They build up powerful spells by casting minor spells and attacks with summoned weapons then unleashing them on their enemies. Sorcerers can also astral project to scout out an area before entering it. They deal high magical damage but can suffer against opponent's magical immunity. Sorcerers spells are combat focused as well, with most spells requiring damage dealt to be able to use their spells.
