Belts of priestly might were defensive magical items, created by servants of a given deity, that boosted the wearer's strength and natural defenses.[2] They were normally named for their faith of origin e.g. Mystran belt of priestly might.[1]


The first belts of priestly might appeared in Halruaa at the end of the Godswar; the Halruaans took this as a sign that Mystra had returned.[3]


Belts of priestly might were made of broad leather, and featured a stamp of a deity's holy symbol on the front.[3]


To manufacture belts of priestly might, an arcane spellcaster or divine spellcaster had to know both barkskin and bull's strength.[1]

They were created by many different faiths, and could only be worn safely by persons who were either of that deity's alignment, or had that deity as a patron.[2]
