Moradin

Portals: Deities GeographyHistoryMagic

Moradin (MORR-uh-dinn), or the Dwarffather, is the god of the dwarves and the chief deity in their pantheon. A harsh but fair judge, he is strength and force of will embodied. Moradin inspires dwarven inventions and constantly seeks to improve that race, encouraging their good nature, intelligence, and harmonious existence with other good races while battling their pride and isolationist tendencies. Moradin’s holy day is on the crescent moon and he is worshiped at forges and hearths.

Moradin’s clerics, known as Sonnlinor, are usually drawn from family lines, like most dwarven occupations; they wear earthy colors, with chain mail and silvered helms. Moradin charges his followers with the task of removing the kingdoms of orcs and wiping out the followers of Gruumsh. The church of Moradin has an active role in guiding the morals of dwarven communities; they emphasize his hand in everyday dwarven activities such as mining, smithing, and engineering, and invoke his blessing when these tasks are begun. They lead the push to found new dwarven kingdoms and increase their status among surface communities. Many of these communities celebrate Hammer 1st, believing that day in 1306 DR to be a blessing by the Dwarffather.
