d20 Mythic Vistas - Medieval Player's Manual

This book by Green Ronin Publishing details Medieval Western Europe. On the whole, it is fairly useful, though it's not quite the same as the Gothic Earth described in the Masque of the Red Death setting (for example, it recommends not using many typical D&D monsters, whereas MotRD recommends using any D&D monster). It's still very good to flesh out a character from Gothic Earth's medieval Europe.

On dealing with the controversial topic of defining a living religion in game, it tries to be respectful and practical at the same time. Here is what the book says about clerics:

Quote
Clerics and Paladins

The militant focus of the cleric class means that it is not generally appropriate for priests, or indeed for other clergy. Most men of God are expected not to fight, even under provocation. There are, however, exceptions: the militant orders such as the Knights Templar and the Knights Hospitaller. These groups are founded around the beginning of the twelfth century, and are dedicated to fighting the enemies of the Church, primarily the Saracens.

Clerics function well as the priests of those orders, with extensive military training but emphasizing prayer and miracles. Such characters do not have a natural place in the lands of Northwestern Europe, but this makes them good player characters. Without a natural role, they are much more free to follow up on adventures, and this is the sort of thing the Knights Templar would be expected to do.

Christian Clerics must be of good alignment, and be ordained as priests [...]. As God is the source of all things, they may choose any two domains which have no evil domain spells. Christian clerics always channel positive energy and can cast cure spells spontaneously. As for priests, player character clerics may be female, as long as they are pretending to be men. The social consequences of being found out are the same for any woman ordained to the priesthood.

Paladins, as holy warriors, fit well into the Church of this period. Pope Urban first preaches the Crusades in 1096, and, as mentioned above, the Knights Templar and Hospitaller are founded in the early twelfth century. While the Church expects all such warriors to be formally affiliated with it, God has no such requirements, and player character paladins can be free agents. Such holy warriors are not ordained, and thus only come under canon law if they are members of some order. On the other hand, while a female paladin would have to pretend to be male, the social consequences of being found out would be somewhat less severe.

[...]

Holy warriors, particularly paladins, face the problem that fighting is, in itself, sinful. Thus, strictly speaking, any paladin who engages in combat could lose his status. While this is unplayable, it is important to retain the idea that God disapproves of most violence. God approves of warriors defending the helpless, or even the apparently helpless, and self-defense is not a sin, although it is not a virtue. Aggression is much harder to justify. Rescuing prisoners is, effectively, defending the helpless, but attacking someone because they have the capacity to attack you, appear to be evil, and seem likely to attack you in the future is not. Sometimes, God commands His servants to attack without waiting to be attacked, but this is rare, and pretending to hear God's command is an even greater sin than violence. In general, then, paladins should not initiate violence unless they have a direct and unmistakable command from God.

In terms of NWN, the acceptable domains for Christian clerics would be Air, Animal, Destruction, Earth, Fire, Good, Healing, Knowledge, Law, Plant, Protection, Strength, Sun, Travel, War, and Water.

Obviously, the social constraints on female clerics in Western Europe do not apply to the Demiplane of Dread, but such a character should begin play expecting these social consequences.
