Thunardormir is depicted as a powerfully built Dwarf with a great beard and a suit of plate armor made entirely out of marble which courses with lightning.

History[edit | edit source]

According to the Dwarven myths, Thunardormir taught the first generation of Dwarves about honour and martial prowess, urging them to never forget either, as doing so would make them no better than beasts of darkness.

His power over lightning is said to represent the Dwarves' conquest of the surface world, showing they do not need to hide underground.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Thunardormir is the second youngest child of Skasdrumri and Reimdorlig, with Kivaedir, Breldikig and Miludir being older and Thar-Thrassan being younger. He enjoys the company of all of his brethren, as well as that of Voniana Theevrolde, whose mischief amuses him when he is not at its blunt.

Cult of Thunardormir[edit | edit source]

Worshippers of Thunardormir are found across many military sects of dwarvenkind, with his clerics being potent warriors and defenders of Dwarven lands. They tend to have a preference for spells based on lightning, with runemagers providing blessed glyphs and runes to cast such powerful incantations.
