Gondol, the Forge Father

The patron of craft and creation, the Forge Father is worshiped by smiths, artisans, and inventors alike, granting inspiration where respect and prayer are given. He shaped the mountains, carved out the river basins and stands as the father of dwarves and gnomes, who he molded in his image and blessed with his desire to create and innovate. Unsurprisingly, devotion to the Forge Father is strongest in dwarven communities, and many of his temples mark the center of a mighty dwarven stronghold.   The Forge Father is armorer to the hosts of the divine pantheon and has made weapons of extraordinary power used during the Divine War, against the great enemy. He appears as a stout dwarf-like being of immense strength, skin of bronze with a beard of dancing flame from which the fires of creation billow forth.
