Vulkan leads his followers through a tome, The Book of Flames. He encourages them to seek out relics left behind by him from his days of wander and war. He is often seen carrying a great hammer or spear wreathed in flames, often with a great cloak made of a great lizards scales. Nocturne is a plane of smiths, the earth is cracked and the molten core is never far from the surface. So great is the heat that the native dwellers of this plane have skin darkened to the deepest black of night.
His followers are encouraged to protect the innocent of all law abiding faiths. They are also encouraged to find and purge evil and aberrations where they may be found. He seems to collect artisans to his cause, and all followers are driven to create with their hands, though most seem to focus on items of war. He has never shied from battle and those that follow him are known to be stubborn, almost foolhardy, in not giving ground in battle. His followers also favor fire as a way to cleanse the unworthy.
Clergy and Temples
While there are temples in his name, most of his followers are encouraged to live amongst the populace near the temple. The monastery themselves are more forge and fortress than temple. His followers are driven to worship at the forge and pay tribute and tithe by creating great works of war. Many of the clergy wander the lands seeking out various relics described to them in the mysterious Book of Flames.
