Picture Derum Ebbar
Dwarven god of commerce

Dogma
Derum was said to be the most enlightened Dwarf economist. His understanding of trade and commerce was only equalled by his dogged pursuit of the engines of commerce. The foundation of an economy starts with raw materials. In time it must evolve an refine itself. The advancement of culture is marked by its ability to conquer ever greater challenges. The measure of this adaptation comes in the form of economic prosperity. Derum preached that a civilization in decline has failed to reach the next economic plateau.

History
Derum was once mortal. His life and his example to others made him a beloved leader in life. Upon his death thousands turned out to mourn his passing. Mortals were not the only ones to notice his impact on the material realm. The fates aligned to make a place for him in the pantheon of Gods to continue his teachings. He appeared to his followers on the day of his divine ascendance. That spring day has been celebrated ever since as The Great Accounting. On April 15 the worshipers gather to pay homage to the teaching and guidance of Derum.

Relationships to other religions
Derum is not favorably looked upon by most religions. He is seen as greedy as are his followers.

Depictions
Derum is often portrayed in his middle aspect with long braids from his beard and hair. His steel gray eyes are ringed with dark lashes that give him a forbidding bearing.

Divine Intervention
In times of economic strife Derum is said to share his wisdom to guide communities of followers out of economic despair.

Divine Servants
Serum is said to be accompanied in his divine travels by a great black bear and a brown bull. These harbingers can often be seen before great changes in markets. Often prospectors and investors claim to have seen these servants before great boons or folly.

Church of Derum
Operating more like a commerce hub than a traditional church. The building houses priests that perform more as investors and loan officers. Operating like Knights Templar, they spread the faith through coin and influence.

The bear is seen at the harbinger of pessimism, but studios followers know that even in pessimism there is opportunity.

The bull is favored, the opportunity for growth is almost assured.

Worshipers and Clergy
Merchant leaders and accountants now fill the ranks of his followers. Though he seems to favor the bold merchants who pursue new means of economic growth and advancement. Some within the church have begun to embrace the new science of alchemy as a tool to advance economic fortunes.

Temples and Shrines
Structures for the church of Derum are typically build of stone. Acting as a bank, these fortified churches are peerless in their defensive capabilities. Secure doors and vaults pervade the structures.

Holy Texts
Many of the holy books are the ledgers and notebooks made by Derum while he was mortal.

Holidays
April 15 is the annual celebration of Derum Ebbar. Lavish festivals and large donations are a part of the celebration.

Picture Acionna
Goddess of the sea

Dogma
Often feared for her temper, Acionna is actually a nurturing mother of life. It is said the narwhales act as her messengers.

History
Acionna has stirred the sea creating life and protecting favored travelers. When the titans ruled these lands she fell in love with one. Arghast was a clan chief strong and fearless. The battle against the demons was never ending. Arghast was not immune to the beauty of the sea. He and Acionna poured their passions into one another. Not long after, Arghast was killed fighting a battle near the shores of modern day Hlofreden. Acionna gave birth to a child Targus. Targus shares the traits of a titan and a god. It is said that he will often take the form of a sea traveller to move among men in order to carry out his mother’s wishes.

Relationships to other religions
Acionna, after her affair with the titan took on a more difficult relationship with Urdemogn the earth god. Their relationship is much like that of the land and the sea. Symbiotic at times with points of tension that erode one or the other. It is said that the most violent storms are Acionna venting her rage against Urdemogn. A tsunami is said to be Urdemogn’s retaliation.

Depictions
Often depicted as a beautiful long haired woman. She cloths herself in sea foam and wearing a dress of waves and a laurel of kelp.

Divine Intervention
Acionna has been known to spare ships and villages from the ravages of the sea.

Divine Servants
Targus, her son, acts as a liaison between the gods beyond the veil and the prime material. Targus is a Demigod that can transform himself into the likeness of any humanoid. His mother’s water nature manifested in him as the ability to transform into water vapor and move about. As an immortal he has wandered among humankind for ages. Sometimes he is more engaged in the activities of mortals. Other times he looses interest and entertains himself in the ocean. As an immortal being of demigod status, he is actually susceptible to being bound by a Magus Arcani for a term of seven years. For this reason he is careful not to leave tokens behind, for these items could be used to bind him.

Church of Acionna
Often a cultural center for people who make their living at sea. Morning prayers and blessing protect the fleet and bless the day’s catch.

Worshipers and Clergy
Worshiper of Acionna tend to earn their livelihood on or near the sea. Fishermen are the most common, but many sea Captains see her as a guiding force in exploration, conquest and discovery.

Clergy tend to be a mix of men and women at all levels of the church which encourages large numbers of female clergy. In other religions where their influences are capped or limited, Acionna is far more socially enabling of women.

Temples and Shrines
There is no set pattern for these temples the few in existence are all vastly different. Shrines tend to show Acionna riding one or two narwhales.

Holy Texts
Text and scriptures tend more toward sea maps and weather almanacs. Clergy tend to preach on topics of social respect and intellectual enlightenment. The nadir of the religion warns of the demons and the formless ones that always threaten to tear down the social gains of a civil society.

Holidays
làn-mara, high tide on the longest day of the year and seòl-mara low tide on the shortest day of the year. The summer festival is typically celebrated with a market festival in the morning and a regatta in the afternoon. The winter celebrations tend to be held indoors. Story telling is a common activity served with a generous portion of wines and ales.

PictureKols Eyadar
Dwarven god of honor and duty

Dogma
Known to his faithful as "Oath-Keeper", Kols is the dwarven demigod of duty. His personal duties are following and serving his father Torag and protecting his brother Grundinnar. He is also the deity tasked with exacting punishment on those poor souls who shirk their responsibilities or break sworn oaths and solemn promises. Some believe that Dranngvit, the Dwarven goddess of vengeance, is Kols' true mother.

History
Kols was born of divine parents. Raised in the pantheon of the heavens. His strict upbringing and sheltered youth had him believing that all creatures divine and mundane were always true to their word. When he began his great quest to draw followers he soon discovered that deception and lies were more common that honor and truth. Vowing to change this behavior by example and in teaching, Kols began his gran turismo to bring his vision to life.

Relationships to other religions
The son of Dranngvit and Meotar, Kols was raised among the Dwarven gods. He maintains a loose association with many of the gods, but his inflexible views often keep many of his contemporaries at bay, preferring less judgmental company.

Depictions
Kols traveled the land on the back of his golden boar Mughurah. A champion of valor and integrity, many Dwarven knights depict a boar on their armor as a symbol of their strength and integrity.

Divine Intervention
For souls who keep to the rigid teachings of Kols, a divine favor is reserved.

Divine Servants
Mughurah the great boar is the best known servant. The lesser known servants of Kols are the lowly ants. Known for their community integrity and hard work, the creatures embody the teachings of Kols.

Church of Kols
The temples and holy shrines of Kols are usually located in the center of a town or city. Seeking to integrate into the fabric of whatever community they serve.

Membership in the church of Kols has been slowly declining for the last two decades. Many of the structures have fallen into disrepair. Likewise, the once lofty position the clerics held in their respective communities has slipped and now they are more often seen on the street preaching the values of Kols to disinterested passers bye.

Worshipers and Clergy
Merchants who worship Kols are respected for their honest dealings. These kinds of merchants are harder to come by these day. Warriors have often paid homage to Kols as a show of respect to their craft.

Temples and Shrines
Structures are built to last with the strongest materials available in the area. Clerics often participate in settling legal disputes if authorized by the local ruling class. This is considered a service to the ruling party.

Holy Texts
Kols laid down on seven scrolls the edicts and tenets of the church. Copies of these scrolls exist in all the temples, safeguarded and placed in a place of honor. Lines from these scrolls are often engraved or painted on the inner worship spaces of the temple.

Holidays
Kols holds each workday as sacred, holding out Sunday as a day of rest and time for reflection. The longest day of the year is celebrated as Summit Valor the day of great achievements.
