|Morval is generally credited as
the creator of Traykon. Scrolls salvaged from the oldest
civilizations speak of Morval and his forming of the world.
Originally a mortal, Morval was granted divine status by his patron Aragon
and as a demigod he formed a world where he could retire to build great
works of magic. Traykon was the end result of his works.
In the early days of Traykon's history, Morval was known
to walk amongst mortals and took an active hand in their daily
lives. He fathered several children, some mortal and others
divine. The devout believe that he still walks to land today and
many treat all travelers with respect hoping to be rewarded by a divine
History/Relationships: Morval's church is
closely allied to the worship of Aragon. Although Morval was a
demigod in the service of Aragon, his creation of Traykon and the
subsequent power gained by worshipers has elevated him to the status of an
Intermediate God. As a servant of Aragon, Morval is on good terms
with the priesthoods of The Unnamed One and The Lost God. Although
many deities oppose Morval's teachings their priests do not openly attempt
to thwart Morval's clergy. The followers of Shahara offer prayers to
Morval as he is the father of their goddess.
Morval has few clerics of his own, mostly he is revered
by those who worship Aragon as their patron. Those devoted to Morval
tend to be powerful war priests who spend half of their time devoted to
the construction of the weapons of warfare and the other half of their
time upon the battlefields of the world. His priests wear silvered
armor with the emblem of the flaming circlet emblazoned upon their
breasts. Followers of Morval will often travel the land perfecting
their battle prowess or spreading their creations around. There is
no known remaining temples to Morval although worshipers often pray at
shrines dedicated to Aragon.
Dogma: Morval teaches that all things
created must eventually fall to destruction. His priests teach that
a type of immortality may be reached by each person if they create works
to leave behind. People who fail to leave their mark on the world,
either by workmanship or warfare are not likely to be capable of resting
peacefully in the afterlife.
Morval's priests believe that those who die in service
to Morval may join him in his ancient temple to continue their service in
the afterlife. They believe that they will be the ones who forge a
new world with Morval when the final reckoning between the gods destroys
the known worlds. War Priests train for that final battle where they
will fight alongside their master and lead the armies of Aragon to
vanquish the enemies of the elder elemental gods.
Avatar: Morval has no need to send an Avatar to
Traykon. Traykon is considered his home plane and his physical body
resides in the ancient temple he first erected when the land was
new. That temple is lost to mortals, its location unknown to even
the wisest sage. Morval is capable of materializing anywhere within
Traykon he desires but his divine presence is only seen when another deity
sends their power against his followers. Morval is also believed to
take the body of an elderly man who travels the land every few
decades. No matter the form he takes, Morval retains all of his
divine abilities and is undetectable to magical divination.
