Curse of the Crimson Throne
The Father of Creation
The god of forges, protection, and strategy, Torag is is a stoic and serious god who values honor, planning and well-made steel. He is an often distant deity, lending magical power to his clerics, but leaving his followers to make their own way through life, knowing that this will make them strong and determined.
The Dwarves believe that Torag created the world at his great forge, striking it again and again with his hammer to get the shape he desired. As rocks tumbled and the sparks flew, the dwarves were born, made of stone with bellies full of fire.
Torag appears as a powerful and cunning dwarf, busy at his forge hammering out a weapon or shield. He is the consummate planner, with a contingency for nearly every situation. Art shows him as a traditional dwarf in intricate armor and carrying his warhammer Kaglemros.
The ancient church of Torag can be found in all dwarven lands, and in many human ones, especially the harsh northern lands of the Ulfen people. The center of Torag’s worship is the metropolis of Highhelm in the Five Kings Mountains. There, the High Defender guides the faithful from the fortress-temple known as the Forge of Torag.
Torag’s holy symbol is the great warhammer Kaglermos.
