The Smith, and chief deity in the dwarven pantheon. A harsh but fair judge, he was strength and force of will embodied. Moradin inspired dwarven inventions and constantly sought to improve that race, encouraging their good nature, intelligence, and harmonious existence with other good races while battling their pride and isolationist tendencies. Moradin’s holy day was on the crescent moon and he was worshipped at forges and hearths.
He has the strength of mountains, and his smoky armor reflects his ties to the earth and the metals that run through it. He bears a mighty hammer that he forged himself from scraps gleaned from a titan’s forge – that of Golthagga, who was the first to take it’s blows.
A lesser-known deity, there remains a devoted following of Droskar among the mountain dwarves that believes sufficient toil leads to eventual success, and that those who fail “simply weren’t trying hard enough.”
In the pursuit of this goal, worshipers of Droskar believe that one should be free to do whatever is necessary to accomplish one’s goal, even if that includes lying, cheating, the exploitation of others, or even worse crimes. Droskar teaches that the end product can always justify the means, materials, and talent expended to achieve it.
