The Khzherre

In the Dwarven realms, many Celestials, collectively called the Khzherre, are held in reverence. There are three High Gods, Fengrim, the Forger, Mezhkhen, the Mason, and Belenth, the Shaker, nine Intermediate Gods, and 36 Attendants.

Each High God of the Khzherre is served by three Intermediate Gods and a panoply of Attendants (lesser deities and demigods) who seek to carry out the will of their deities. The attendants are all at least partially neutral in alignment, using what means they can to carry out this will.

Dwarven clerics will typically hold one of the Intermediate Gods as their primary deity. Through that deity, they also make their devotions to one of the three major deities.

Fengrim

Fengrim represents the precepts of Law in Dwarven society. More-precisely, he represents order and structure drawn from the Chaos of the Unformed in such a way that that which is now Formed cannot be returned to its true unformed state. A sword can never be turned back into the rock of its ore.

Mezhkhen

Mezhkhen represents the belief that within Chaos there exists Order, and within Order, there is Chaos. One cannot exist without the other. The Mason shapes formless rock into stoneworks; these can always be cast down, unshaped, and returned to formlessness.

Belenth

Belenth stands in opposition to Fengrim. She seeks to return the Formed to a state of Chaos, devoid of order and structure.
