I was having an OOC discussion with a new player, and we came to the topics of celestial paragons and their relation to mortals and the gods, in particular the Celestial Hebdomad. The Hebdomad are the highest servants of the dieties of the Triad, according to Player's Guide to Faerun, so I wanted to know, could a person who learned that the Paragon's exist choose to live by the ideals of that Paragon in the service to their proper deity?
For example, let us say a paladin of Torm learns about Raziel the Crusader, and believes that he can best serve Torm by living under the ideals of Raziel. Would this be acceptable, as they are not truely worshipping a paragon, just using them as a role model, or is it considered improper for a character on FRC?
We've opened up worship to fiends, so, while the Celestial Paragons do not accept worship, they do accept followers (as long as it doesn't result in anything resembling divine worship) and I believe it'd be only fair to say that, yeah, its fine.

Bear in mind, however, that knowing a paragon exists does not mean you know specifics about it. You can say WWPD (What would paragon do?) all you want, but unless you know what a paragon would do, what you're doing in emulation is just conjecture.
I prowl the forum late at night in search of blood!
