While the god of earth is rarely seen by the eyes of mortals, his influence can be felt in the ground beneath their feet. His wisdom and guidance have led to the creation of many mighty mountains and rocky formations across Evalaw.
Jhollrg is the god of earth, father of stone and lord of the mountains and everything in-between. He is an ancient and overly proud being set in his ways. Many ancient myths and legends surrounding Jhollrg claim him to be the first of the gods, that the rock and stones of Evalaw existed long before the creator planted the first seed. This may or may not be true but one thing can be said for certain: he does take a rather dim view on anyone tampering with things they should leave alone. While Jhollrg is depicted by many cultures as a might warrior whom stands as a bulwark against the wanton ambition of the more belligerent deities. While Jhollrg might be stubborn and unyielding, in truth his only real interest is peace and harmony. Not wishing to cause ripples or disrupt the natural order, he is content with his lot and will only act directly if he deems it necessary. Protecting and guiding those whom he believes are worthy of it.
Elemental God of Earth, father of stone and lord of the mountins.
Jhollrg numbers amongst the primordial elementals gods, along with Infủs, Hylress and Koeva. Like all such beings, their existence predates any written history known today so exact details remain sketchy at best. Perhaps most well-known for his colourful relationship with his sibling Infủs. The ceaseless conflicts and arguments between the two have become the subject of numerous tales and songs throughout history. It seems likely that this constant bickering has been responsible for much change across Evalaw, both good and bad. For example while the conflict between these siblings created new landmasses and islands which were later claimed by other elemental families; they also great catastrophes and gave rise to some powerful creatures who would go down in legend and folklore. It also led to the creation of the vast labyrinths of caves and caverns beneath the world which would later house the various races who dwelled within them. In eons past Jhollrg would come to rule the underworld, however that crown has long since slipped from his grasp, finding himself in a strange position of powerlessness. Having lost control of the underground realms he was meant to protect and guide, instead finding his influence spread thin now reduced to a mere presence governing it's natural order of that realm.
Highly venerated amongst the Dwarin and the giants of old, having said to have appeared before them in times of great peril to lend his aid and guidance. Legends among the Dwarin tell how Jhollrg came to their ancestors in their darkest hour and led them away from the depths of Evalaw to settle amongst the roots of the mountain. In return, the Dwarins were forced to swear eternal allegiance to the mountains. To this day, dwarves still pay homage to Jhollrg by making offerings to him whenever they need to summon the blessings of his strength. In recent years, Jhollrg has grown somewhat distant and withdrawn, no longer wishing to be bothered by the affairs of others. He spends most of his time in the peaks of Evalaw mountains, where he has found peace and solitude. While he still takes an interest in the affairs of those who seek his blessing, he is not inclined to interfere with their affairs unless directly asked. Worship of Jhollrg has diminished only found amongst rural communities in the mountains and plains of Evalaw, but more commonly among the Dwarin holds whom still hold the stone father in high regard. Most common forms of worship are small shrines and altars to the god, with offerings of stone or metal being the most common.
