We could either timeskip or go ahead with the cult conversion; don't know who the opponents would be, exactly, but the idea is there's a cult Mazat wants to turn into his followers, and we either have to convince them or drain their souls

Maybe they could start in a base of some good guys to steal some artifact so they can't use it against Mazat?
potential sett up. there is a temple of clerics. in a hidden room somewhere there is an artifact they have to get. They being clerics senses Heart and captures him thinking he's alone. Story starts. Heart acts scared and helpless before the clerics starts being rude and Heart reveals it was all part of the plan with a cheesy one liner before everyone jumps out and kicks cleric ass. and then we just take it from there
Make the clerics whatever really. As long as they're good aligned the rest doesn't really matter. So be preach/ higher then though/ moderats/ open minded / close minded/ agressive/ passive doesn't matter. So just be whatever you think will be funniest
