The deity Brakah (Brah kah) is a god of different things to different people. To Daernarthor it is a steadfast and fatherly figure of
strict discipline who is responsible for creating the world and even the dwarven race. Others, such as
Urdunan dwarves understand Brakah to be the wayward
son of Huld the Shelterer (Arden) and the sneaky counterpoint brother to Mogdin the
Hammer Breaker (Azhull). Even more different is its position in the
Silothreni pantheon as Sotin Eestat, the "Earth-Home Destroyer,"
a vengeful god of earthquakes, destruction, and loneliness. Each of these races don't acknowledge that the aspect of Brakah that they
worship is at all the same god as that of other races; thus many of Brakah's followers are deeply divided in their beliefs and branches
of Brakah worship remain very distinct and separated from each other.
