a family no longer has the means to support their children, it is customary in
some societies to leave a new-born infant on the steps of the local church. These
children are taken in and raised by the religious order, providing the infant
with clothing, food, and sometimes education. This is far more than poor peasant
children generally receive, and the life of an abandoned child is, while less
than glamorous, certainly more comfortable than the alternative. Especially gifted
and obedient abandoned children work their way up through the church to become
priests in their own right, giving something back to the religion that raised
them when their own families could not.

Due to his intimate familiarity with the religious lore of his faith, the
abandoned child receives a +2 competence bonus to any Knowledge
(religion) checks
he makes in regard to his own church.

The church provides, but it does not provide much. The abandoned child starts
his adventuring career with a suit of leather armour, a backpack, one week of
standard rations, a water skin, a Holy
, and the chosen weapon of his god.
The character receives no other starting funds.
