* If the sum of your Strength and Constitution is greater than the sum of your Dexterity and Charisma, the 1st-level domain spell is body blades. If not, the 1st-level domain spell is persistent blade.
** If your race is one renowned for its grace (such as elf, half-elf, feline, nymph, dryad, viverrae, etc.), the 2nd-level domain spell is daggerspell stance. If your race is one renowned for its power (such as orc, dwarf, gnoll, half-orc, bugbear, troll, etc.), the 2nd-level domain spell is whirling blade. (Generally, races that get racial bonuses to Dexterity and/or Charisma have a reputation for grace, and races that get racial bonuses to Strength and/or Constitution have a reputation for power.) If your race is not particularly well-known for grace or power (such as human, goblin, kobold, gnome, hedgehog, etc.), then you may choose which of the two possibilities is your 2nd-level domain spell. Once this choice is made, it cannot be changed.
*** If you are good, the 7th-level domain spell is sword of light. If you are neutral, the 7th-level domain spell is sword rain. If you are evil, the 7th-level domain spell is sword of darkness.
**** If you worship Svarog, the 8th-level domain spell is Svarog's sword. If you worship Perun, the 8th-level domain spell is axe of Perun. If you worship any other deity, the 8th-level domain spell is mage's sword.
