Daedongue

His symbol is a hammer, often stylized to be integrated with a stout man’s beard or illustrated with the residual glow of hot iron. He is shown in more anthropomorphic work as a Dwarf, most often, though it is not uncommon for his proportions and attire to be ambiguous. Regarded as a deity of industry and labor in general, the Dwarves have claimed him as their own in a display of pride, but all other races believe he patronizes their crafts as well. His temple is every workshop and forge, and it is borderline taboo for there to not be some sort of shrine to his favor on the premises; often the forge itself is designed and styled as the shrine, its fiery maw the very mouth of Daedongue himself.

In myth and legend, Daedongue is Aurwane’s brother, and the two of them slay many monsters together. It is Daedongue who is said to have fashioned Aurwane’s shield after he discovered the secret of steel and forged himself a hammer capable of the task. Although Daedongue’s church is not quite as militarily oriented, in terms of philosophy, they are certainly better equipped!
