bolt and destroys all your wielded items

pre-crown bonus, as below)

light. Big uncursing

Crowning as Champion
"Mortal, ye have done great service to my cause.
Hereby ye art crowned to be my champion!
Something is lying at your feet."
You must be extremely close to your god, and exemplify your alignment (C-/N=/L+). If you have the closeness, but not the alignment, you can pray anyway and get an artifact gift, but you'll have to regain the extremely close status again for crowning.
Champions are permanently Blessed, get an immunity (see below), get an artifact from the diety, get a blessed amulet of the appropriate alignment, and get some relief from the costs of praying and equiping artifacts. They are also the only ones who can convert the altars of the Elemental temples.
When the gods grant immunities...
Acid immunity "You look forward to be digested by the Chaos Lords/Lords
of Order themselves."
Cold immunity "You feel prepared for the most chilling tasks."
Heat immunity "You no longer fear the heat of all hells combined."
Shock immunity"You feel that neither thunder nor lightning will be able
to prevent the success of your mission."
Sacrificing creatures co-aligned with altar (for neutrals and lawfuls) hear a booming voice in your mind
*BE WARNED! SACRIFICING MY OWN CREATURES IS NOT SOMETHING I WELCOME WITH JOY*

but the diety isn't too angry, yet.

Sacrificing summoned fodder
A voice in your mind lectures you. *WHAT A MEDIOCRE SIGN OF DEVOTION.

creatures and replicators gives both.
Sacrificing really lousy food items
