The Dwarven Gods, represent the specific needs of all dwarves.
The gods are the most powerful beings in existence but they are not omnipotent. They share the mortal flaws of their worshipers as well as their mortal desires.
Through worship, the gods gain power and influence. In return, they grant powers to their faithful through divine magic.
This creates a synergistic relationship between the gods and mortals of the world where the gods’ powers expand according to the devotion of their followers.
There is much theological debate amongst scholars, sages, and clerics as to what came first, the gods or the worship? However, one thing remains true. The divine is no illusion and the powers gods grant their followers are real.
The Dwarven Gods represent the needs of all dwarves although it is not unheard of for a Dwarf Diety to grant powers to other mortals for their worship.
Each Dwarven God represents a Portfolio or Domain of worship.
