Divine Intercession

The Strong Man’s gifts reflect his mastery of might.
Source Gods & Magic - Web Supplement pg. 7

Minor Boon: The Strong Man blesses you with a measure of his strength. Increase your maximum and encumbered Bulk limits by 2.
Moderate Boon: You fear no exertion. You can employ exploration tactics normally while fatigued.
Major Boon: You possess a true champion’s might. When you roll a critical failure on an Athletics check, you get a failure instead, and when you roll a success, you instead get a critical success.

Minor Curse: Difficulty lifting burdens is a sign of divine disapproval. Your maximum and encumbered Bulk limits decrease by 2.
Moderate Curse: Kurgess’s displeasure breaks your competitive edge, causing you to fail at the cusp of success. If your check result exactly equals the DC, you fail instead of succeeding.
Major Curse: The wrath of Kurgess withers you almost to nothing. You are permanently drained 2 and enfeebled 4.
