Laduguer - Duergar - Priests - Gods

Grim and gloomy, this joyless god long ago foresook his brothers in the dwarven pantheon and exiled himself to the fringe dwarf communities who were the ancestors of the duergar. Laduguer's nature is certainly evilly-inclined, but much of this is the evil of a being turned in on itself and bitter at what he sees as being unvalued and rejected by the other dwarf gods. Laduguer is a supremely lawful deity, unbending and harsh, and he despises the other dwarf gods as lazy, indolent, and feckless.

Role-playing Notes:

Laduguer is a slavedriver who demands constant toil under harsh conditions from his people. But he does reward hard work, by teaching the crafting of magical items (especially weapons) and by extending his protective powers. He will send an avatar to defend a hard-working and oppressed duergar community by use of protective and warding magic, rarely entering into open battle. He does not send omens to his priests
