Tome of Dorgoth

Dorgoth

Dorgoth (The Wise One, The Source, The Knowing Father, The All-Knowing, He Who Seeks, The Architect) is the god of knowledge, technology and science. While worshipped througout Laeryll, he is especially revered within the Labarean Empire and for many he is most strongly associated with the gnomes.

Centers of Worship

Most libraries contain at least a shrine to Dorgoth, but there are several sites that specifically attract worshipers of The Knowing Father.

In wood elf culture

Among wood elves, Dorgoth symbolizes the purpose of cosmos more than a call to knowledge. The Dorgothian rituals in their society are mystical and are used for divination purposes or to reflect on great historical events, weaving together past, present and future.

Wood elves are wary of those who seek to displace the unknowable through reasoning and exploration; instead they choose to celebrate it.
