Clerics are the only magic users that don’t really freak everybody out.
Typically they live in cloistered priories and abbeys inside towns and cities or along well-traveled routes. They serve specific deities and operate as liaisons between the common people and the divine. They’re seen less as conjurers of magic than as conduits, channeling the might of their god to achieve a purpose. Often, their gifts are regarded as a service available for trade just like any other commodity.
