"Progressive" Theistic miracles

If you want to give the miracle more teeth, simply say that the recipient automatically wins any opposed roll from Special Effects used against them. It will make Berserk utterly terrifying.

I have been playing with the idea of making Theistic miracles more powerful as the character progresses in the cult. I haven't created any exhaustive list of miracles and their improvements yet, but this could be one such improvement applied at Acolyte or Priest level. Another example could be True Weapon. At initiate level damage could be capped to weapons natural max damage per RAW, but at Acolyte level the cap could be removed allowing significantly more damage with good rolls.

What do you think?

Monster Island has a few examples of precisely this, theistic miracles which increase in effect as cult rank progresses. So yes this method can be used in a very creative manner, but you have to be careful about how it scales. :)
