From The Hub
Moradin is the chief deity in the dwarven pantheon. His titles include Soul Forger, Dwarffather, the All-Father, and the Creator. He created the first dwarves out of earthen materials and tutored them in dwarven ways.
Moradin's realm is Erackinor on Solania, the 4th layer of the plane of Mount Celestia, a home which he shared with his wife Berronar. Unknown assailants, likely allied with Bel and the Infernal Scourge, attacked and attempted to kill Moradin armed with Deishoraks. After a fierce battle, Moradin fled his home for the protection of Arcadia. With the help of Jason, Atticus, and the Zactar, Moradin has formed an alliance with Clanggedin Silverbeard (See Episode: Arcadia Alliance). Moradin and his armies are currently camped outside of Mt. Clanggedin.

History with the Azrai
Jason Gembright and the Azrai stumbled upon the aftermath of Lawshredder's attack on Moradin after chasing the killer through the planes. They were instrumental in retrieving Moradin's Soul Forge after the God's hasty retreat from his realm. Since, the Azrai, through the work of General Gembright, have formed a strategic alliance with the Power; exchanging knowledge, technology and tactical support.
Moradin charges his followers with the task of removing the kingdoms of orcs and wiping out the followers of Gruumsh. He is upset if they flee from their foes or kill their fellow dwarves.
Moradin's clerics wear earthy colors, with chain mail and silvered helms. His clerics are usually drawn from family lines, like most dwarven occupations.
Hammers of Moradin
The Hammers of Moradin are an elite military order dominated by crusaders and fighting clerics with chapters in nearly every dwarven stronghold and members drawn from every dwarven clan. The Hammers serve both as commanders of dwarven armies and as an elite strike force skilled in dealing with anything from large groups of orcs to great wyrms to malevolent fiends from the Lower Planes.
The order is dedicated to the defense of existing dwarven holdings and the carving out of new dwarven territories. Individual chapters have a great deal of local autonomy but, in times of great crisis, a Grand Council (the reigning monarchs and senior Hammers of the affected region) assemble to plot strategy and divine Moradin's will.
Order of the Anvil of Light
Another elite military order of Moradin is the Order of the Anvil of Light. Lead by their leader Barock Stormbeard of the Stormbeard clan who has lead this group for ages it seems. The groups latest information is having to deal with a deity trying to return to the Material Plane.
Temples and rituals
