Josmorra Character in Kelbonnar | World Anvil


Of all the deities in the world, Josmorra is closest to home for most people, especially as her divine domains are that of hearth, home and fertility. An unfathomable amount of people have grown up under the watchful eye of the goddess, who is given a presence in so many homes through the domestic alters that families set up within their houses, to bless and protect their homes.

Common Worshipers

  Her divine domains mean that Josmorra is widely worshipped across the world, with many houses having shrines, alters and offering places set up within them.  


  There are relatively few priests of Josmorra, principally because her divine domains are so focused on domestic matters, which do not warrant or need large temple spaces to be celebrated in. The clerics that do exist tend to be Halflings who minister to Halfling majority communities, where the worship of Josmorra is more formalised and communal.  


  Josmorra’s divine domains mean that she is a goddess who is almost exclusively worshipped within domestic settings, rather than within formalised temple settings. Many houses across the land have a domestic shrine to Josmorra, generally placed above the main entrance to the house, so that all who come in peace within are protected by the goddess’ blessing.   The main exception to this rule is within Halfling majority settlements, where temples dedicated to Josmorra are regularly found. These temples tend to venerate the goddess as the founder of their race and the mother of the entire community, rather than focusing on the other parts of her domain.

  Like the other members of the Adelfotita, Josmorra has remained neutral in the Divine War.
