Moradin is the god of creation and patron of artisans, especially miners and smiths. He carved the mountains from primordial earth and is the guardian and protector of the hearth and the family. Dwarves from all walks of life follow him. He demands these behaviors of his followers: Meet adversity with stoicism and tenacity. Demonstrate loyalty to your family, your clan, your leaders, and your people. Strive to make a mark on the world, a lasting legacy. To make a beautiful creation that lasts is the highest good, whether you are a smith working at a forge or a ruler building a dynasty.
Moradin was only one of two gods to survive the rise of the New Gods. His demeanor didn’t change much over the centuries, unlike his divine peer Pelor. Dwarves are too set in their ways to worry too terribly much about the young upstart gods. Not being particularly pious in the first place, Dwarves remained relatively unaffected by Moradin’s loss of power after the end of the Dark War and the destruction of the Mana Chasm.
