    Just wondering if anyone has made any notes on the dwarven gods.

    I use Moradin as their chief god. I use the 8 children mentioned in the B-A book as a basis for the rest of the pantheon.

    Any ideas or suggestions?
    Cheers

    I think you are doing the right thing according to everything that I have read. I know that there is a website about Moradin somewhere that Princess Emerald found somewhere perhaps she could share that address with us again.

    FR also have a varity of dwarven gods. Perhaps some of that material could be adapted for BR?

    Is anyone interested in working on a dwarven pantheon based on Moradin as the creator god, and his eight children as basis for the rest of the dwarven gods?

    I know that there is a Dwarven Cosmotology already on BR.Net

    I agree that it should be brought alittle more in line with the sourcebooks. I'll take a stab at it and see what I can come up with.

    NO disrespect ment to the original author...;)

    Moradin's children:

    Torvald - Dwarven god of Smithing (LN)
    Mirvald (his wife) - Dwarven godess of Stonecraft (LN)

    Sivia - Dwarven godess of Mining (LN)
    Kalvia (her husband) - Dawarven god of War (LN)

    Zohra - Darven god of Tradition and Law (LN)
    Zahra (his wife) - Dwarven godess of family and home (LG)

    Kalmirn - Dwarven godess of Wealth (N)
    Kalgraf (her husband) - Dwarven god of Green (NE)

    These are just suggestions.

    Who is Moradin's wife or does he spawn children at random?

    Does anyone find it the least bit proposterous that 'gods' have children, marry, etc. as if they are 'human'???

    The above gods are based on the children of Moradin. He managed without a wife :P

    Lawgiver, no more proposterous than Jesus being the SON of God! If you believe that why couldn't you believe that the gods of myth have children?

    I must agree and disagree with Lawgiver.

    I think it is also sort of strange for gods to get married and have children since they are suppose to be devine. But, since D&D allows gods to have these relationships, I think that this shows the flaws of these myths and gods. They still have human tendancies and fail to be true Gods.

    I am sort of offended by Lord Eldred's comment about the son of God. As most know Christianity teaches that Jesus is God and God is Jesus. God created a son from himself in order to help the people understand him and find a place in heaven.

    Please, I do not want to start a debate on real world religion and hope that this does develop into more. Let us stay talking about D&D Birthright and keep fantasy and reality apart. :)
