Champions of Old Korvosa
Torag, Father of Creation
God of Craft, Strategy, and Dwarvenkind
The dwarves believe that Torag crafted the world in his forge, striking it again and again with his hammer until it had the shape he desired. As the rocks tumbled and the sparks flew, the dwarves were born, made of stone with bellies full of fire. While favored by dwarves, a great many humans have also taken up his call. The faithful of Torag are architects, artisans, and military planners.
The Church: Proudly practical, the Church of Torag is organized as a military hierarchy. The high priest of the church is the High Defender, presiding over the faithful from the fortress-temple called the Forge of Torag in Highhelm, in Five Kings Mountain, the dwarven homeland. Priests of Torag are expected to also have another career. Most are also artisans, craftsman, or military officers. Priests of Torag are most often clerics or paladins, with many who have multiclassed into fighter or expert. The holy text of Torag is the practical book Hammer and Tongs: The Forging of Metal and Other Good Works.
In Korvosa: With its proximity to the dwarven city of Janderhoff, there are a fair number of dwarves in Korvosa, and most follow Torag. Many humans also venerate the Father of Creation, especially those in the metal and stoneworking professions. A dwarven cleric of Torag runs the Shrine of Torag in the Pantheon of Many, and holds services there every Fireday night.
Torag is Lawful Good. His portfolio includes metalworking, strategy, and perseverance. His favored weapon is the warhammer.
Clerics of Torag have access to the Artifice, Earth, Good, Law, and Protection domains.
