Visions of Aquelae: The Redstone Band
Moridin, the Earthfather
Moradin’s domains are Creation, Earth, Good, Law, and Protection. His titles include Soul Forger, Dwarffather, the All-Father, and the Creator. Dwarven legend says He created the first dwarves out of earthen materials and tutored them in dwarven ways, in the cool clear mountain air in the shadow of the First Mountain. Moradin is the head of the dwarven pantheon, and counts Gruumsh and Maglubiyet among his most fierce foes. Moradin charges his followers with the task of removing the kingdoms of orcs and wiping out the followers of Gruumsh. He is upset if they flee from their foes or kill their fellow dwarves. Moradin’s clerics wear earthy colors, with chain mail and silvered helms. His clerics are usually drawn from family lines, like most dwarven occupations. His holy water is made with good ale or mead, with only a tiny ammount of silver (still at same PHB cost), and dwarven worshipers imbibe it on holy or important occasions. Moradin is worshiped at forges and hearths. Metals, stone, and gems are sacrificed to him there. Most of Moradin’s holy days fall during the crescent moon.
