Some people believe the Dwarves should just worship the Norse Gods, rather than these ones. Cast your votes! Although the mods are the ones whom the final decision is made by. I tried to not make it too complicated, so that newcomers can easily grasp it.

You may notice that the gods end in Ryr. I was thinking that could be a suffix denoting power in the Dwarven Language, although if it's a problem it could just be a coincidence.


KORVRYR

God of Disease, Famine, Insects (non-evolved), Tricks (especially fighting dirty). Bringer of Failures, both great and insignificant, and everything in between. Ruler of Arilir, the 'Hell' of Dwarven religion. Matron of Thieves, Murderers, Tricksters, Necromancers and Warlocks, as well as any others who dabble in the dark magics, however, Spies and Performers also pay their respects to her.

Generally depicted in dark robes, with a single-horned Helmet. Her face is scared and mutilated, with pus-filled boils scattered across it. She is accompanied by a host of demons of all kinds.

FASRYR

God of Weather, Earth, Plants, Mammals, Fish, Hunting, Agriculture, Elements, Magic, and all water, be it fresh or salt. He is the patron of hunters, fishermen, farmers and all those that venerate the natural world.

Generally depicted with a green beard, hanging to his knees, with no braids, full of twigs, leaves and the occasional bird. He stands over a river teeming with jumping fish, in front of a forest. He wears a sea-green robe with hood. His face is weatherworn, but kind, smile lines are apparent. He is accompanied by various Natural and Elemental spirits.

LYTRYR

God of Valourous Deeds, Honour (especially Honourable Combat), Thought (specifically, clarity of), Innovation, Warfare, Battle, Metalwork, Mining and Crafts. Source of Success. Lord of Dralir, the 'Heaven' of Dwarven religion. Patron of Warriors, Tacticians, Craftsmen, Do-Gooders and Miners.

Generally depicted with a two-horned, full-face helmet, in full plate armour, head held high, holding his sword pointed to the ground. His beard is brown, and reaches to his hip, heavily braided. He is accompanied by the valourous spirits of deceased warriors



MYTHS

Creation Myth - Once, there was an endless void. This void took shape as Korvryr, who was the embodiment of malice, deceit, sickness and ruin. She gave birth to first Lytryr, then Fasryr. They each agreed to shape one world. Fasryr shaped the mortal plane; Lytryr shaped the heavenly plane; and Korvryr shaped the Underworld. Then, the gods got together, deciding to create life on the world. Fasryr opened his arms; plants and all manner of beasts, fish and birds sprung forth. Lytryr smiled, and shaped the Humans and Furres. He was unhappy with these creations, and created the Dwarves, whom he favoured. Korvryr, jealous of her sons, created insects to devour the plants, and then created Elves. They have been a nuisance to the rest of Creation ever since.

I like 'em a lot! There's no reason there can't be both--hyoomans have plenty of religions after all. ;P If new players come in wanting to RP dwarves, we can make this available to them, but we can't require that this is the only religion they're allowed to have. That's my only qualm.

I definitely wouldn't mind making this official, though! The NPCs could be split between these and other religions.

I like these ones. I'd certainly worship someone with a green beard.
