Defense of the Empire of Henniswyyr
The Anvil’s God Moridan
Of all the Gods in Henniswyyr, Moridan is likely the most lazy. The God of Dwarves believes it is not his place to interfere with his creations, but rather that if they wish for his blessings so badly they should have the stones to achieve the greatness they seek on their own. He has been known to take an avatar as any other God would, and like the rest he always maintains an Avatar. However, the gifts he bestows on his Dwarven Avatars is barely more than the mages under his worship could bestow themselves.
He is however responsible for the blacksmithing talents of the Dwarves. It is said the races of the world are all of a certain talent for smithing, but the Dwarves are special in that they have found ways to make anything they smith be of strangely higher quality. They are also responsible for the creation of “darkwood,” which differs from normal wood in being somewhat harder and almost 5 times lighter. The use of it in weapons was unheard of to most races untill the Dwarves proved that it made even their stone heavy arms swift as the wind.
