Tialímin (ˈtʲiəɫiːɛɲ)

Guide to the Afterlife Tialímin Briknomm (a.k.a. God of Funerals and Death)

Divine Domains

Tialímin is the God of Roads, Travel, the Afterlife, and Funerals. As the Lord of the paths, he is a god to thresholds and all journeys and a self-respecting Miylian Elder will go and pray at a temple or shrine to him before traveling and leave an offering to the god. It is believed that doing this will catch Tialímin's attention so that he will grant safe passage.   The other part of his domain being the afterlife and funerals goes with his domain of being a god of paths and that death is just another journey. It is a tradition that the spell Peaceful Sleep is cast on the dead so that they cannot be raised by Necromancy. It is not uncommon for the spell to be cast on living people when there is nothing that can be done to help aside from being comfortable.

Holy Books & Codes

Tialímin's holy book is the Guide to the Gloom Way which documents traveling with Portals and funeral rites. There are a few myths in the book such as a version of The Death of Lynir. Although not his holy books he is mentioned in The Hymn of Veglienna and The Word Of Desires inside the The Canticle of Bhoa dru Durá. It is believed that Tialímin is the one that wrote the Guide to the Gloom Way and is thus the one who discovered portal travel.

Tenets of Faith

Tialímin is one of the easiest Fa Geinn gods to please as he requires offerings before and after traveling, attending the pilgrimages to the other gods' festivals, and attending to and honoring the dead. Tialímin hates Necromancy so it is a taboo to use this type of magic on honorably dead people.
