Vergadain

Portals: Deities GeographyHistoryMagic

Vergadain, also known as The Laughing Dwarf by non-dwarves, is the neutral dwarven deity of luck, trickery, negotiation and wealth. While it seems that Vergadain represents the dwarves’ well-known dedication to the mercantile art of bargaining, those who know better are aware that he has an aspect that fills even the more legal-minded dwarves with pride. As such Vergadain also watches over those dwarves who use less-than-legal means to gain wealth. Regardless of how he is viewed, Vergadain delights in the art of the deal, no matter what it is, so long as it turns a profit.

Few admit to following Vergadain in knowledgeable society, but those who do are known as Humdor or “those who trade”. The Hurndor are dedicated to furthering dwarven commerce, traveling Faerûn farther than the priests of any member of the dwarven pantheon with the exception of Marthammor Duin.

Clerics of Vergadain are expected to be personally wealthy, while also ensuring that some of their wealth is dedicated to keeping the local temple filled with treasure. Holy days of Vergadain’s faith are known as coin festivals (also jokingly referred to as trademeets by humans), marking a period of immense mercantile activity. These occur on the days before and after a full moon, on Greengrass and on any day declared favorable by the Merchant Prince.
