The grave domain was a deity domain pertaining to the line between life and death. Deities of this domain were aware of the fundamental importance of death and the afterlife and regarded the undead as abominations. Therefore, clerics of this domain were concerned with ensuring peace for the dead and comfort for the dying, as well as delaying death for those that still had great accomplishments ahead of them.[1]
