30 Day Challenge - Day 6 - By the Power of ...

Other bloggers like +John Payne have great things to say about this day of the challenge. I on the other hand don't have much. I've never gone and created complicated pantheons of gods and demons or delved into the true meanings of the hows and whys of worship in a fantasy world.

But then, I'm a simple person, I have simple needs when I roleplay, and as I mentioned on Day 2 (I believe) I love dwarves and I love playing as clerics ... so for me the god of choice has always been Moradin, the Forgefather of the dwarves.

Now when I get the option of forging how one worships Moradin I have fun. Moradin is, to me, a loving but hard father. He wants the best of his children, his creations, but respects valor and proof of self-worth over prayers. He is a god that will sooner smite the Cleric that invokes his name than help that cleric. However, the cleric who quietly does the will and lives as Moradin commanded when the first dwarves left the forge of souls, will receive his father.

Oh and Crom. Crom is on his mountain, all is right with the world.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
