Reimdorlig is the Dwarven goddess of magic, runes and language, who serves as the queen of the Dwarven Pantheon.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Reimdorlig is depicted as an aged Dwarven woman who wears the magical armor associated with runemages. Her outfit itself is covered in hundreds of small arcane runes, each describing a different spell; it is said all spells in the Firmament are written in it.

History[edit | edit source]

According to the Dwarven myths, Reimdorlig taught the first generation of Dwarves how to use magic in the form of runes, as well as taught them how to speak and communicate, leading to the birth of Dwarven as a language.

Realm[edit | edit source]

Like the rest of their pantheon, Reimdorlig resides in the Forge of Worlds, the realm of Skasdrumri in Ziana. There she resides in a great runic throne by the side of Skasdrumri, watching over the realm, her followers and her fellow gods.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Reimdorlig is described as a stern, but fair figure, who believes her Dwarven children must be able to handle themselves without her constant interference if they are to survive in the mortal world. Like her husband, she puts great emphasis on tradition and enjoys seeing Dwarven clans keep their ancient rites well preserved.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Reimdorlig is the wife of the greater god Skasdrumri, making her the queen of the dwarven gods. All of her fellow gods treat her with utmost respect, and none would dare incur her wrath. Her younger siblings are Varmumli and Strerderimm, while Miludir, Thunardormir, Breldikig, Voniana Theevrolde, Thar-Thrassan and Kivaedir are her children. Certain small sects of followers claim Reimdorlig learned her magic from Infinitum.

Cult of Reimdorlig[edit | edit source]

As the queen of the gods, Reimdorlig is worshipped in at least some capacity by all Dwarves. Those who dedicate themselves to her are runemages, spellcasters specialized in rune magic, as well as scholars dedicated to studying the history and intricacies of the Dwarven tongue.
