Belts of priestly might are defensive magical items, created by servants of a given deity, that grant boosts to the wearer's strength and natural defenses.
They are normally named for their faith of origin (e.g. Mystran belt of priestly might)).
The first belts of priestly might appeared in Halruaa at the end of the Godswar; the Halruaans took this as a sign that Mystra had returned.
Belts of priestly might are made of broad leather, and feature a stamp of a deity's holy symbol on the front.
To manufacture belts of priestly might, an arcane spellcaster or divine spellcaster must know both barkskin and bull's strength.
They are created by many different faiths, and can only be worn safely by persons who are either of that deity's alignment or have that deity as a patron.
