The Stout Folk of the Realms worship a pantheon of deities collectively known as the Morndinsamman, a term that can be loosely translated “shield brothers on high” or the high dwarves. The composition of the pantheon varies slightly from clan to clan, but the powers presented hereafter are venerated or at least acknowledged in most dwarven settlements of Faerun.
The dwarven gods are said to have sprung from stone and earth, beginning with Moradin. Berronar is universally held to be Moradin’s wife, and many dwarven theologians hold that all the other dwarven powers are their descendants, although the exact ordering and ancestry vary from myth to myth. After Moradin and Berronar, the oldest dwarven powers are thought to be Dumathoin, Abbathor, and Clangeddin.
The Morndinsamman are intimately involved with the lives of their worshipers, and the Stout Folk as a whole are an unusually devout race. Faced with the slow decline of dwarves across Faerun, the dwarven powers have become increasingly active as they seek to reverse that trend. Correspondingly, dwarven religion has assumed an increasingly important role in dwarven culture and society. The dwarven pantheon is predominantly male, reflecting the population imbalance between the two genders.
