Obedience Meditate in a secluded place with blood you have drawn from a creature you have dealt damage to. If you have none, you must offer up your own vital essence to the Lord of Murder, dealing 1d6 damage to yourself that cannot be healed until the obedience is complete. Either smear your hands with the blood or draw Bhaal’s symbol with it (or both) while chanting prayers to Most Holy Bhaal. Gain a +3 profane bonus to confirm critical hits while wielding a dagger.

Deific Boons

Evangelist

1. Dead Bones (Sp)
unlock flesh 3/day, boneshaker 2/day, or boneshatter 1/day.

2. Mantle of Bones (Su) You create polished knives of ivory that float around you, up to one knife per four Hit Dice. This is otherwise identical to the twilight knife spell, with the addition that creatures struck by the knife also bleed as per the wounding ability. You can use this ability once per day.

3. Mark of the Slayer (Su) You place a death mark on one creature within your line of sight that is visible only to you and the creature that lasts for 24 hours, without a saving throw. Hereafter, the creature suffers a -2 penalty to attacks, armor class and saving throws against your spells and attacks. At any time, you can detonate the mark and force the creature to succeed at a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + ½ your Hit Dice + your highest mental ability score modifier) or suffer the effects of the destruction spell. If it dies, the creature’s bones explode out in a burst of gore and blood to form a blade barrier made of bones cast at your caster level. Half the blade barrier’s damage derives from unholy power and thus is not subject to spell resistance. You can use this ability once per day, and if the creature succeeds at a saving throw, it’s immune to the detonate effect for the rest of the mark’s duration.

Exalted

1. Death Unimpeded (Sp)
touch of bloodletting 3/day, steal breath 2/day, or death knell aura 1/day.

2. Deathstalker’s Stride (Sp) Once per day, you can stride into Bhaal’s realm, the Throne of Blood, in Gehenna moving through that plane, and then traveling back into the Prime Material Plane at your destination. In general, each 10 feet moved through Gehenna equals one mile of distance on the Prime Material Plane. Direction does not matter in Gehenna, since the will of Bhaal and the intention of the traveler determine where she or he comes out. You take a full round to prepare for the movement into Gehenna and another full round to return while in Gehenna. This form of travel is 100% reliable under normal circumstances, but it cannot pierce areas sanctified to the forces of good (unless you succeed at a caster level check against the effect), antimagic areas, or areas that cannot be reached from the Outer Planes. You are not protected while in Gehenna, since Bhaal considers those capable of traveling to his homeland capable of protecting themselves. This otherwise functions as the plane shift spell.

3. Call Murderer (Sp) You have earned Bhaal’s favour, and the Lord of Murder’s servants answer you call. Once per day as a standard action, you can summon an aerial servant (Lawful Evil only) with the sneak attack and studied target abilities as a slayer of its level to serve you. You gain telepathy with the aerial servant to a range of 100 feet. The creature follows your commands perfectly for 1 minute for every Hit Die you possess before it vanishes back to its home on the Plane of Shadow. The elemental refuses to follow any commands that would make it act in an overly good way or would transgress against the commandments of Bhaal. Such commands earn a contemptuous hiss or could even cause the aerial servant to attack you if the command is particularly egregious.

Sentinel

1. Murderer’s Boon (Sp)
unerring weapon 3/day, sense vitals 2/day, or redcap’s touch 1/day.

2. Bloody Blades (Ex) You gain a +2 profane bonus to all attack and damage rolls with a dagger. Once per day, by dipping your dagger into a drop of blood, you can infuse it with bloodlust. For the next 24 hours, you are treated as though having a favored enemy (as the ranger ability) of the creature type that supplied the blood as long as you wield the dagger.

3. Form of the Ravager (Su) Once per day, you channel the power of the Ravager, Bhaal’s aspect of brutal death. You gain the benefits of enlarge person for one round per character level with an additional +2 profane bonus to all physical ability scores, your face turns into a demonic grimace, and the fires of Gehenna burn in your eyes. In addition, you gain the master slayer ability as a slayer of your Hit Dice for the duration, save that you can only use it to kill. If you are already a slayer, then you additionally gain a +2 bonus to the saving throw of your master slayer ability if you already have it or if granted by this ability.

Glory to BOOOAL.

Deific Obedience is a Pathfinder 1e creation, something like the Initiate of X feats.

https://www.aonprd.com/FeatDisplay.aspx?ItemName=Deific%20Obedience

The Evangelist/Exalted/Sentinel prestige classes are 10 level classes roughly analogous to Arcane Devotee/Divine Disciple/Divine Champion, only more tailored to the god they represent than only just generic bonuses.

PF2E was released in 2019 and is currently undergoing a remaster, thanks to WotC's latest antics. Among others, the drow are now being replaced by serpentfolk.
