Father of all Dwarves, Moradin exemplifies the Dwarven mindset, one could call him a “Dwarf’s Dwarf”. He professes the value of making things last, and loyalty to clan and ancestors. Like Corellon Larethian, he tolerates no evil amongst his children; it was he who cast the Duergar from dwarven lands.
Clerics of Moradin maintain the dwarven way of life, acting as public officials, smiths, judges, and priests all in one. Temples to Moradin always include at least one anvil and forge which is always kept burning while the anvil will, more often than not, serve as the temple’s altar.
Clerics of Moradin are leaders among both the Fire and Frost Brand Dwarven Nations, and among mining communities where dwarves are in abundance, such as the Bantok Mines in the Glacial Wastes.
