DURANN (LESSER DEITY)
The True Guide
Good, Healing, Law
Shining horizontal hammer
Truth, righteousness, honor Wise and caring, Durann is a kind goddess who encourages people to be true to themselves and others in order to create a better world for everyone.
Of all the lawful deities, she cares the least about structure and instead focuses on benevolence.
She believes in tending to the sick and taking an active role against evil.
She is depicted as a woman with black hair and long robes of gold and brown thread, carrying a hammer that shines like a lighthouse lamp.
Her many dwarf worshipers usually show her as a dwarf woman with these qualities.
Worship of Durann is most prevalent in Salkiria, although her presence is known in dwarven lands and (to a lesser extent) any part of the world where people hope for something better.
The center of the church is in Salkiria (in the capital city, Donaree), but the hier- archy is very flexible, and one’s position within it is based on the performance of good deeds.
As a result, the upper ranks of the organization are very volatile and often filled with courageous adventurers.
Small prayers (or simple shrines) to Durann can even be seen in households located in places where she has no formal temples.
Clerics of Durann are teachers, healers, legal advocates, and champions of good.
The Duranna pray for spells after waking in the morning.
The fourth day of each month is called the Day of Truths, and Durann’s clerics are not allowed to tell even the slightest falsehood on that day—not even speaking fiction.
They sometimes multiclass as fighters or paladins, and paladins of Durann can multiclass freely as clerics.
Her clerics wear brown and gold.
Durann is an old deity who retains an optimistic outlook despite the fallible nature of mortals.
She and her brother Chaniud have been trying, in various guises, to guide civilization for thousands of years.
Her allies among the local deities are Aluvan, Cha- niud (with whom she shares a celestial residence), and Eanius.
She has casual dealings with Galaedros, Nessek, and Uhanam, who have proven to her their ability to keep their word.
Her only true foes are the evil deities.
Strive to hold to the truth and use your honor as your shield.
If your honor is infallible and your heart is true, you will prevail against all adversity.
The hammer of Durann seals oaths, shatters bonds, and crushes lies—its light shines forth to inspire all to greatness, glory, and good.
Be calm and uncompro- mising in the face of great injustice, for the righteous hand will strike down evil in all its forms.
