Alon, King of the Gods, is the most widely worshipped deity among humans, and the second-most worshipped deity of the Twinborn. He is a god of fairness to his followers and destruction to his foes. He appears as a stern-faced human in his later years, his long black hair starting to grey. He is often depicted in half-plate, with his favorite sword “Swift Justice” in his hand, and a simple gold ring atop his head.
Alon, who the humans believe to have created the world, teaches two things. First is patience – good things will come later, or after death. Life is full of hardships, and they must be endured to enjoy the greater riches. Second is valor. No true hero can abide by evil and suffering, and it is through these heroes that Alon’s will shapes the world. Alon despises the wicked, and the infernal, and his wrath is fearsome to them.
Clergy and Temples
Alon’s clergy are a musical people, and during the sunny days that Alon graces his people with, joyous songs can be heard echoing forth from his churches. They live simple, modest lives, only taking as much from donations as they need to maintain the churches, and their homes and meals. All races are welcome and encouraged to worship Alon, but to join the clergy requires years of dedicated study to his teachings in specialized schools.
