Who is Salor?

Post by PhilOfCalth » Thu Jul 27, 2017 11:21 pm

I was reading through my copy of Heroes of Magnamund, specifically at the Sommerlund Knight of the Realm. There are references to Salor, as if he's (or she's) a god. Who is Salor, and are there any other lesser known gods?

Everyone knows Kai, Ishir, and Naar, but I'm having a hard time digging up any information on any of the other gods. Can anyone help me out?

There's not a huge amount from what I can see. There are a few (evil) gods mentioned in the Magnamund Menagerie under the Priest entry, but nothing in the Devout Archetype in Heroes of Magnamund.

I would imagine with the release of the Realm of Sommerlund we will see mention of some gods worshiped by the Sommlending.

I think Kai and Ishir are the predominant religions, but there are a number of lesser deities that people pay tribute to on a regular basis, maybe without knowing exactly why.

I can think of examples like sailors making an offering to the sea before leaving on a voyage, farmers leaving out small amounts of leftover food before planting or harvesting and that kind of thing.

Yes, Kai and Ishir are the main gods in the Sommerlund religion, but there are others.
Salor is a demi-god,the Lord Of Battle. He is revered by Sommerlund's military, but particularly the Knights Of The Realm, who have his symbol (a Broadsword upon a Kite Shield) tattooed on their fighting arm and engraved on their favoured weapon.

There are other demigods, and i presume we shall learn more when Realm Of Summerlund is released.
