PORTFOLIO: Smithing and Related Crafting
Creed: Brock is the maker of the weapon and armour of the gods, legend states that he taught the first human smiths 30000 years ago how to make copper and bronze tools. His temples are few but is followers are many, nearly every human blacksmith or whitesmith is a follower of Brock. His clerics tend to be wanderers and often are Adventurers because of that. They also become mercenary company smiths. Asking a cleric why he wander likely will get you a shrug, they often don’t think about it. They minster to Blacksmith and Whitesmiths along the way as well as any seeking the answers of the forge. If not adventuring they will be dressed as any smith would, leather apron, leather gloves, and often brown clothes, often of lower quality even if the cleric is well off. Their clothes will be stained with oil, soot, and burn marks. Since proper worship is seen as smithing, most rituals involve co-operative smithing, often to make a new weapon for a just to be ordained cleric, who will man the bellows for the ritual. Whitesmith Clerics often make brazers, and decorations or panels for the temples often detailing myths of Brock. the will often have wax stains and smears on their clothes and aprons. Clerics of Brock lean towards favouring men but if a woman wishes to join they will not stop her. Advancement is linked to skill in the craft, so it doesn’t really favour a gender.

Lay worshippers offer prayers on starting a smithing task and give thanks on success of creation or tempering. Strength is common among his worshipers given the swing of a hammer all day will do that.

Brock’s clerical domain is Forge
