Portals: Deities GeographyHistoryMagic

Kurtulmak (KURR-tull-mack) is the deity worshiped by kobolds. He is primarily a god of war and mining. Kurtulmak hates Garl Glittergold above all other beings.

Kurtulmak is often linked to the draconic pantheon. Some myths hold that he is a son of Tiamat, queen of evil dragons.

His realm in Avernus, Draukari, is a warren of caverns, its tunnels narrow and short-ceilinged. Warped, spectral forests grow on the surface. The twisting tunnels of Draukari are filled with blood and reek of death, and they twist so maddeningly that a body’s sure to get lost in them. Anything larger than a halfling has to crawl through the mud, which is filled with traps and other nasty surprises.

Kurtulmak tirelessly drives kobolds to make war upon gnomes in retaliation for a prank the gnomish deity Garl Glittergold pulled on him. Kurtulmak has neither a sense of compassion nor a sense of humor.

Kurtulmak teaches that notions of “fair play” are for fools. It is better, say the kobolds, to flee and live to fight again than to die for the sake of “bravery.” No fight is over as long as one kobold lives who can plot revenge. Revenge is a dish that tastes as sweet cold as it does hot. Quick wit and clever traps are more effective than brute strength.

Kurtulmak’s priests wear orange scale mail and iron helms. His sacred animal is the rook.

Priests of Kurtulmak begin their careers as miners. Those who regularly sustain injuries in their work are trained under rigorous military discipline to become clerics or adepts of the faith.
