Swarnigul


IC - IN CHARACTER - KNOWLEDGE

Theme: Goddess of Dwarves, Gems, Fire, Ore and Metalcraft.

Holy Plant: fir
Colours: green and red
Temples: Dalzungund

It is said that at night, when the dwarves sleep, Swarnigul will rise from her bed to visit each one of her children. She will marvel at their accomplished tasks of a labourous day, and those who toil the hardest throughout a day will not seldom have a fading memory of her gentle lips on their brow.

Then she will pass through the mines, probing the rocks with her fingertips, and where she walks the very rocks strive to please her, forming beautiful gems in her wake, to be found by her children during their long days of work.

Each dwarf thinks with fondness and longing of his heavenly mother, and he sleeps at night with confidence in his home under her mountains, close to her hearth fire.


OOC - OUT OF CHARACTER - KNOWLEDGE

Swarnigul is one of the major gods. She was created by AO and she is the mother of the dwarves. The fire that warms the earth from below is her home.

Fire is an element of life. In the beginning, there was only darkness. And the dwarves were cold and afraid in the dark. But then, Swarnigul gave them fire, and they could warm themselves and see in the night. And in the fire they prepared their food and it helped them to drive away their enemies. And they learned to use the fire to create tools and weapons. Fire is the friend of the people. Those who disregard it, will burn themselves, but those who use it with care will have the benefits.

In the non-dwarven population Swarnigul is mostly seen as god of craftsmanship and mainly smiths. For the dwarves however Swarnigul represents the main goddess, nearly to an extent of being the only god. She represents the fire that makes living underground possible.

Within the world people see how fiercely Swarnigul protects her children. Her followers often seek only to live a peaceful life, yet they will fight anyone who tries to take it from them and their brothers. In the struggle of "good" and "evil" she is often counted to the "good" side.

Among the Pantheon Swarnigul is regarded as neutral.
