Zors is the demigod of last chances and is commonly depicted hanging upside down from the Tree of Life, where he waits to be devoured by Nidhogg, the Eternal Dragon. Those who pray to Zors do so when no other god will answer them or when all other hope is lost. By the same token he is also the deity of great luck, as he has escaped the bonds of the Tree of Life so too have his followers found themselves fates worse then death. In reverence to his luck aspect, Zorsans hold a great weekly lottery collecting huge sums of wealth, which are always paid to the lucky number holder, lest the demigod exact some vengeance of unluckiness upon those who would corrupt the purpose of the game.
Prophets of Zors openly oppose ritual executions in ordered societies as cruel and unusual punishment. They are frequently found performing the ritual of the hanged man near gallows and other public places of execution. In this ritual one of their number is paraded around before a jeering crowd in the throngs of a noose, only to have the noose slip free and the prisoner escaping. This symbolizes a second chance to do better in life, lest one pay the ultimate price in the next.​
