Dorgoth (The Wise One, The Source, The Knowing Father, The All-Knowing, He Who Seeks, The Architect) is the god of knowledge, technology and science. While worshipped througout the Northern Arm, he is especially revered within the Labarean Empire and for many he is most strongly associated with the gnomes.

In wood elf cultureAmong wood elves, Dorgoth symbolizes the purpose of cosmos more than a call to knowledge. The Dorgothian rituals in their society are mystical and are used for divination purposes or to reflect on great historical events, weaving together past, present and future. Wood elves are wary of those who seek to displace the unknowable through reasoning and exploration; instead they choose to celebrate it.
Notable CultsThe Order of the Source was a group of monks, wizards and sages who sought divine inspiration to gain a deeper understanding of the universe. The Architects are Dorgothians who seek to use knowledge, both technical and historical, to improve lives and maintain peace.
