Followed by dwarves and gnomes everywhere. Much to the disgust of the dwarves elves everywhere.

This religion is mostly concerned with: Astronomy, Arts, Crafts, Dwarves, Fire, Gnomes, Invention, Knowledge and Magic. Magical Research. This is based on the immortal pantheons patronage which also covers the rest as aspects of the belief structure. I have highlighted anything shared between at least two of the immortal patrons.

Patrons – Air (1), Astrology (1), Astronomy (1), Art (2), Balance (1), Conquest (1), Crafts (2), Craftsmen (1), Dwarves (2), Energy (1), Flight (1), Freedom (1), Fire (2), Gnomes (3), Heroism (1), Hunters (1), Hunting (1), Invention (2), Knowledge (2), Light (1), Magic (3), Magical Constructs (1), Magical Research (2), Mechanics (1), Metallurgy (1), Miners (1), Mortals (1), Nature (1), Peace (1), Power (1), Progress (1), Revenge (1), Scholarship (1), Science (1), Sculpture (1), Serenity (1), the Sun (1), Technomancy (1), Thought (1), Traditions (1), Truth (1), War (1), Wisdom (1).

Dwarven and Gnome Pantheon Character Options

  • Character Options – Dwarven and Gnome Pantheon
    • Races: Dwarves, Gnomes

Dwarven and Gnome Pantheon Immortals

Due to the unbalanced nature of the spheres, it really suits as an organisation among the Followers of the Flame, but at best suited to Followers of the Magma due to core of the dwarven gods being in Matter, while the strength of the pantheon is in energy. Occasionally it can see Followers of the Ash when taking the aspects of sphere of thought into account.

This was a setup for generating random clerical domains for NPCs, which was a nice idea but a lot of work to set up and maintain. It was swapped out for the simpler model above. For a random domain, roll % twice, first to see rarity of domain and second to see which domain in selected.

01-97% Common

96-97% Uncommon

98-00% Rare
