Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
This week we’re looking a bit more at Orcish religion, which has been touched on a bit here and here before. As stated, the Orcs primarily worship a masculine solar deity – but this has not always been the case….

Gnomish Culture Bonus Material, part 3

Gnomish religion is polytheistic, with a pantheon of many minor and major deities. Here are six of the major ones:

Butrus, god of stone, watches over the mining of precious gems and minerals.

Anosmia, goddess of protection and destruction, is often called upon for defense.

Fizzlebott, god of winds, looks over airships and other technologies.

Kimmer, goddess of soil, governs both plant-farming and wilder nature.

Shipley, god of shepherding, watches over animals, Gnomish families, and parenting.

Carwen, goddess of love and creation, rules the arts and romance.

(Even though there are visual representations of the gods in temples and the like, individual Gnomes are free to envision them and worship as they personally see fit.)

Regular updates resume next Monday!
