Make consecrating more things possible!

Make consecrating more things possible!

Simply put, I'd like to see more fixtures consecrateable.

The altars we have to pick between are very limited and honestly a bit bland, which is sad when there are many situations where a different kind of shrine might beg for a more subtle or otherwise appropriate object in focus. Imagine praying in front of a statue, for instance. Or a painting situated above a nice arrangement of candelabra on a ceremonial rug. Or whatever. It would open up for a lot more creativity and options, also making it easier to preserve fixture space and let shrines be less bloaty when they want to.

Some of the fixtures I imagine could make for nice places of worship are statues, stone vases, paintings, the runic pillars, candelabra, and, uh, perhaps torture racks? I realise it's not a very long list, but I do imagine that there might in the future be more coming that would be good to already have a framework in place to be able to consecrate. And others might have ideas for other current fixtures that deserve this option, anyway.

I'm guessing that Consecrate might serve better as a feat than just a command if this was to come to pass, so that one can click the Consecrate ability and then click a target fixture to consecrate. Or something like that. On the note of such a feat, I'd love if consecration was more widely available, but that's a different suggestion entirely.
