Montish Gods

  • Guntera, King of the Gods. He was the husband of the goddess Kílf. The dwarves made sacrifices to him in order to ensure his favor. Gûntera was against the creation of people to inhabit the world; later on, though, after Helzvog defied his order and created the dwarves, Gûntera created the elves, and is the patron of stars and lordship.
  • Helzvog, God of Stone. He was most beloved of the dwarves, and held sway over all the earth (while Guntera ruled the heavens, Kilf ruled the seas, etc). Helzvog created the dwarves from stone, and is the patron of the earth and life. The national sigil of Monthold is Helzvog's symbol.
  • Kilf, Goddess of the Seas and Queen of the Gods. She was the mate of Gûntera and was the only one who restrained herself from forming a race. The dwarves associated her with water lilies and coral. She was described as having flowing hair and merry eyes. She is the matron of the seas and lawfulness.
  • Morgothal, God of Fire. He was brother to Urur, and worked with him to create the sun and moon. Dwarves believe that honored warriors dine in Morgothal's Hall when they die. He is the patron of the forge and the sun.
  • Urur, God of the Air and brother to Morgothal. and the creator of the winds and the mythical dragons. According to theological legend, neither of the two brothers can live without each other. He is the patron of winds and the moon.
