    Fear is something that has been associated with mythical angels as much as it has been associated with fiends. I'd say that it is often a different kind of fear, and tends to be used in specific ways, but for the purposes of D&D, it is still fear.
    Sounds good to me.

    So it is that many of these prayers are answered by different kind of servant:
    -should be "a different kind of servant:" - IE you forgot an "a:.

    With Eldritch Retribution, you need to specify that you pick the Eldritch Essence to apply in each individual case... or otherwise specify that the eldritch essence, or lack there-of is as per the last blast you fired.
