Rampol is the son of Kotath Nar by a mortal woman. The woman died in childbirth and Kotath Nar gave the child to a widowed farmer to raise. The boy grew up beautiful and strong. He became a mighty warrior and was the general of his king’s armies. He often lay beneath the stars at night and Thaya, goddess of the moon, would come to him. They were lovers until Rampol died in battle. Thaya grieved and looked for a way to bring him back. She first went to her mother, Balatha, but Balatha was unable to help her. Next she went to Diben Maraud, then Mutarin and finally Molak, the death god. None of them were able to help her.
Finally, in desperation, she sought out her lover’s forbidding father. She sought out Kotath Nar for a year and a day, and the moon did not appear in the skies while she searched. Eventually, she found the Storm God and discovered why none of the others had been able to help her. After his death, Rampol’s soul was called to join Kotath Nar’s entourage of followers.
At first, Kotath Nar demanded that Thaya lie with him for a night before he would release Rampol. She refused and the sky remained moonless for another year as she grieved. Upset by the moon’s absence, Diben Maraud, Mutarin and Balatha decided to intercede. Faced with his brother and sisters, Kotath Nar consented to releasing Rampol, but under one condition. His son was to become a god. The other three agreed and together they resurrected Rampol, elevated him to full godhood and gave him the sphere of the sun as his domain.
Rampol is a god of the sun, healing, fertility and revitalization. He is a good and benevolent god and is married to Thaya. He has a special hatred for the undead as they remind him of his own death.
Rampol manifests as a bronzed smiling man with blonde hair and glowing sunlit eyes. He is usually garbed in white and only those with good in their hearts can look directly at him without being blinded. In battle, he wears archaic plate armor and wields a glowing mace.
Worship of Rampol is widespread and he is favored in most human lands. His priests are healers and farmers, statesmen and craftsmen. They promote peace, purity and goodness and have a special mission to rid the world of the undead
