The old guide entry : Gaea
Followers of Gaea are prohibited from using melee weapons.
This can be an impediment for many, but is required for Fireborns , Dragons , and Monks ,
so Gaea might be a natural choice for these, as there are many advantages.
These include immunity to all diseases, death, depletion, and draining attacks.
Other than dragons, who obtain elemental attacks with their claws over time,
Gaea followers may have problems damaging some opponents in melee due to restrictions on damage type.
At a high enough praying level Gaea will sometimes grant gloves which add a fire attack.
There are a few other items which give an additional attack type, but not many, so melee may be a problem.
Gaea's disadvantage is well-known: “NO WEAPON”.
To balance this out, Gaea grants a huge amount of special prayers,
fast hp/grace-regeneration, valuable path-attunes and drain/deplete-immunity.
The “goddess of peace” is surely not designed for the newbies.
But I think it is well possible to build a character from this cult.
