Touched by the Gods

It occurs to me that, unlike other classes, becoming a Cleric or a Paladin isn't really a choice made by the player, but rather by the deity.

This means that I ought to be able to tell a player, when they get enough XP to go up a level, that they have to take a level in on of those classes. Obviously, it would be something that would need to be carefully handled, but if you choose the right player with the right character (i.e. one who is already upholding the ideals of the god in question), it ought to be interesting. Especially if you throw in a sweetener, like having one of their weapons gain an appropriate magical ability...

What do people think?
