Deities Pt. 2 - Gods

okie dokie, here are the male deities.


(Lord of Light, One-eye)
Greater Deity
Symbol: Lance with white roses entwined
Home Plane:
Alignment: Lawful Good
Portfolio: Light, Good, Honour
Worshippers: Paladins, Knights, good fighters
Cleric Alignments: LG, LN
Domains: Law, Good, Strength
Favoured Weapon: Lance

Sarles is depicted as a handsome man with one eye missing, golden hair, holding a lance, and wearing pure white armor. He resembles a typical paladin. He lost his eye when dueling Zhent, his archenemy and rival, but took Zhent's heart in return. He is honour-bound, and does not tolerate evil. Embedded in his forehead is a ruby in the simple shape of a lance.

Dogma -
Sarles lets loose his wrath on all evil. He despises it, and seeks to stamp it out everywhere. Fallen paladins are objects of contempt for him. Despite his rather cold and strict exterior, Sarles can be quite empathetic, and helps those who wish for salvation.

Clergy and Temples -
Sarles' order of paladins and knights, the Order of the White Rose, are found nearly everywhere, trying to convert the population to his ways. There are very few cities where they are not found. His clerics have a special alliance with the clerics of Aimliona, who they respect, as Aimliona is Sarles' wife.


(the Saviour of Ships, the Wiseman)
Greater Deity
Symbol: Shell
Home Plane:
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Portfolio: Water, music, wisdom, Elves
Worshippers: Good mages, bards, scholars, sailors, sea elves
Cleric Alignments: CG, CN
Domains: Water, music, wisdom
Favoured Weapon: Flail

Adhemar is seen with black hair, pale skin with a greenish tinge, and ice blue eyes. His fingers are webbed, and he has gills on his throat. He is also depicted carrying a harp, his favourite instrument. In his forehead, a sapphire in the shape of a shell is embedded.

Dogma -
Adhemar is a very benevolent god, and very chaotic. He protects the sea elves and coastal cities from much of Nain's wrath. He does his part to destroy evil, using most of his power to harm Nain.

Clergy and Temples -
Adhemar is often worshipped alongside Nain, though the two hate each other, they are each protectors of the sea. The sea elves worship him primarily, and Erulastiel secondarily. Bards who worship him often wear blue cloaks or shell necklaces to honour him.


Greater Deity
Symbol: Bear
Home Plane:
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Portfolio: Earth, Dwarves, creation, smithing, war
Worshippers: Dwarves, metalworkers
Cleric Alignments: LG, LN, NG
Domains: Earth, Law, Protection
Favoured Weapon: Warhammer

Baldarich is the patron of dwarves, who he created. He has long, flowing brown hair, and black eyes. He is barrel chested and is extremely strong. He is often depicted wearing armor, a shield, and a helmet, wielding his warhammer. In his forehead is an embedded emerald in the shape of a bear tooth.

Dogma -
Baldarich is a staunch defender of his people, who he values more than anything else. He remains alert any taint of evil in his people, and stamps it out if it gets carried away. He encourages his people to advance their race as much as possible.

Clergy and Temples -
Baldarich's clerics are charged with being the caretakers of the dwarven society. They are teachers, fighters, and historians. There is a temple to Baldarich in every dwarven commune, where a forge is kept, perpetually burning.


(the Reaper, Lord of the Dead, Plaguelord, Master of Poison)
Greater Deity
Symbol: White snake around a skeletal hand
Home Plane:
Alignment: True Neutral
Portfolio: Death, darkness, underworld, poison, disease
Worshippers: Necromancers, undead, assassins
Cleric Alignments: TN, CE, NE, LE
Domains: Death, balance
Favoured Weapon: Sickle

Igarol is the feared lord of death. He appears as a man, pale and handsome on one side, but dead and rotting the other. He was not always half-rotting, but he used half of his being to create Zhent a new heart. His hair is long and white, his skin is grey, and his eyes are completely black. In his forehead are three shards of amethyst, representing the three things he is feared for: death, poison, and disease.

Dogma -
Igarol is a neutral god, neither liking life, nor hating it. Those who follow him are usually over-zealous and death loving maniacs, who do little to promote his beliefs, and he cares little for them. But he cares very deeply for the lost souls of the dead, ghosts trapped in the material plane, and seeks to bring them all to the underworld.

Clergy and Temples -
Those who worship Igarol are either in cults, where they perform cruel sacrifices that he scorns, or, there are a few who do try to send ghosts to the underworld, where they can rest. Many undead worship him, mostly vampire covens. Many assassins say a little prayer to him and his counterpart Rhindani so ensure a mission will proceed without fail.


(the Jester, Lord of Masks)
Greater Deity
Symbol: Peacock
Home Plane:
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Portfolio: Air, rogues, music, humour, tricks
Worshippers: Gnomes, kender, rogues, bards, actors
Cleric Alignments: CE, CN, CG
Domains: Air, Chaos, Trickery, Luck
Favoured Weapon: Throwing stars

Faraji is the trickster god of the gnomes, and considered the patron of the fine arts. He is either depicted as a black haired adrongynous man, impeccably dressed in bright colours, or a human man with brown hair, wearing a mask decorated with dark feathers, wearing black clothes. His forehead has gold, silver, and onyx embedded into it, in the shape of a mask.

Dogma -
Faraji is constantly cheerful, and encourages his followers to be the same, even in the face of adversity. He enjoys scaring his foes, wine, women, and song make him happy, and he has been described as the most lecherous of the pantheon. He is often targeted by Sarles, who he constantly tricks or plays pranks on, which his followers take upon themselves to do the same to the Order of the White Rose.

Clergy and Temples -
He has very few temples or shrines dedicated to him, but those who do follow him, do their best to follow his example. Many actors and bards credit him for their talent.


(the Heartless One, Lord of Fire)
Greater Deity
Symbol: Scorpion
Home Plane:
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Portfolio: Fire, law, discipline
Worshippers: Fallen paladins, evil clerics, evil fighters
Cleric Alignments: LE
Domains: Destruction, Fire, Law, Strength
Favoured Weapon: Two-handed bastard sword

Zhent is the opposite of Sarles, and the twin brother of Irihapeti. He is depicted as a handsome but gaunt man with black hair, deeply tanned skin, and green eyes. He also appears as a blue dragon like his sister, but not nearly so often. He took Sarles' eye in a duel, but lost his heart as well. He was brought back to life by Igarol, who fabricated a new heart from himself. A yellow crystal forms the shape of a scorpion tail in his forehead.

Dogma -
Zhent is evil, but demands that his paladins follow honour and law. He believes that the world is dark and bloody, and only the strong survive.

Clergy and Temples -
There are a few shrines to him in the desert, but the people rarely beg for mercy, as he typically does not. His few clerics are often driven out of cities, as they want nothing to do with him or his power.
