God of joy, mirth and merriment, of wine and song and good
fellowship; a very happy figure, he is the patron of bards,
poets, troubadours, and musicians -- as well as of loafers,
gourmands and drunks. Glythtide's mere presence is abhorrent
to some of the darker gods due to his unstoppable happiness.
It is said amongst the Halflings
that the one time he frowned and cried, night was created.
Arthe Dale is
favored by Glythtide, and he has been suspected of making
a few visits upon occasion (usually denoted by the sudden
lack of liquor and tarts within the town). Chief deity of
Saemaus symbol: Donkey
The gentle god of love is also the god of festivities and
a toast is always made in his name at most wedding ceremonies
or festivals if one wishes to ensure a marriage filled with
love or a grand party. A god of happiness, Saemaus' anger
is hard to come by, but terrible to behold. He has been known
to curse his enemies with a malaise of lovesickness -- usually
by making them fall in love with another enemy of his (or
theirs). The patron of lovers, pregnant mothers and expecting
fathers, maids of honor as well as their male counterparts,
Saemaus is also known for his tendency toward being tipsy
as well as an unmatchable chef; Halflings honor him as the
inventor of the tart.
Be'ort symbol: Coyote
The god of bitter partings, love lost, opportunities wasted,
and insanity, Be'ort is the rain on a wedding day, the wine
that turns to vinegar before a party. Be'ort is a great, sulking
figure who despises revelry and wallows in melancholy. Wars
of attrition (such as the Elven-Human war) are his specialty.
Be'ort always appears as a wild-eyed and mussed-hair man who
is usually giggling a bit oddly. If Be'ort truly wishes to
destroy someone, he will first make sure their relationship
sours, then destroy their status in their profession, and
then, when his miserable prey has sunk to their lowest, he
makes sure their mind snaps.
