I am pondering playing a 3.5e Cleric of Pelor with my D&D group and I wished to gain people's thoughts on what level of roleplaying passes the acceptable line.
I imagine him to be a champion of his faith--but not like most of Pelor's faithful. A blade in each hand in combat and covered in platemail, he'll be an instrument of his god's holy justice. However that is not the aspect which I have come to ask about.
I have come to ask about his sense of morality and ethics (and if you all think it would be--too much for a group to handle):
-He is the kind to heal the wounded (during time in town) without asking for a fee, only requesting that they pass on the kindness.
-Offer a large percentage of the spoils of adventuring not to the Church, but to improving the lives of those who need it. A few examples of this would be:
-Buying heavy blankets in bulk to distribute to the homeless for the upcoming cold season.
-Distributing his gold to poor families struggling to survive.
-Gathering the materials to perform a "Raise Dead" spell on a man who died serving the people.
-He would actively argue against delivering criminals to the authorities. In example: He would not have a thief arrested, he would give the thief enough money to survive for a few months and explain to him how it is wrong to steal. How there are more ethical ways to make a living. And if nothing else, the Priesthood.
Would such a character be a nuisance to the party (he would advocate similar actions of his companions)?
