Gloriana and Glugrat seek to destabilize the dwarven power structure. I must be ready to take advantage of this by building a group of extremely devout followers loyal only to me…

  • Step 1: Find those in the church who chafe under Joseph’s timid leadership.
  • I must help Glugrat cement his status as a power in the underworld. I will convert an underworld leader to the worship of Ás-Megin.
  • I will help Gloriana destabilize the dwarven church by bringing her proof that a priest of the Four has a moral weakness.
  • The time for rebellion is at hand, and the people need a sign of divine guidance. Make a public demonstration that Glugrat is the Hammer of Ás-Megin.

I must assist Gloriana and Glugrat in destabilizing the dwarven state by disgracing the Temple of the Divine Four. To do this I must prove their decadence and corruption…

  • Step 1: Find a priest of the Four with a moral weakness.

The elves and orcs will be His instrument to cast down the dwarven overlords…

I will obtain a hammer worthy of Ás-Megin…

  • I must rebuild my taxed Resources and buy a hammer so I can begin to learn its use.
  • I will give Gloriana a holy symbol of Ás-Megin worthy of her status.
  • I will bring new people into the fold of the true church (i.e., I will increase my Church of Ás-Megin affiliation by +1D).
  • People shall know throughout the land that I am the voice of Ás-Megin (i.e., I will increase my reputation by +1D).
  • I will defeat the demons—servants of the Four—haunting my steps.
  • The orcs shall throw off the yoke of their oppressors.
  • I must find the one who will become the great champion, the Hammer of Ás-Megin.
  • I will find proof that the Church of Ás-Megin is the true church of this land, overthrown long ago by heathens and demon-worshipers.
  • I will learn to wield the hammer, the sacred weapon of Ás-Megin.
Instinct bullpen
  • When injured, pray.
  • Always denounce evil.
  • Sacrifice anyone or anything so that I can fulfill Ás-Megin’s will.
  • Oppression must be met with the fury of righteousness.
  • Demon-servants of the Four are everywhere. Always call them out.
  • The first time I meet someone, I will try to convert them.
  • Always confront those who insult my faith.
  • Never allow a demon to live.
