    Default NotD Gods: The Five Urons

    The Orichalcum Uron (Lesser God)
    It is said that the five urons were forged in different places among the planes to embody different aspects of life, from powerful titans to the smallest microbes. If this is so, The Orichalcum Uron embodies strength, valor, pride and resiliency. It is also said that he was forged in the fires of the sun, magic plates bent over a body of stone and clay and fitted with an unimaginable array of devices which no mortal man could comprehend. It is also suggested that The Orichalcum Uron was the creator of the first orichalcum weapons and armor, taking bits of his own body to forge them for those in worship of the demigod. Two centuries ago, The Uron and his three companions left their realms together to come to the material plane. There they began to teach the secrets of creating artificial life to man and gnome, and thus warforged were created. At first, these automatons had no souls, but soon after the four Urons revealed why they had come to share their secret: they were all soon to die. In their death throes, their souls dispersed across the material plane and each warforged had new life breathed into it, The Orichalcum Uron among them. Warforged that carry the soul of The Orichalcum Uron as their own are valorous, strong and often brash. The Orichalcum Uron is often depicted as he was seen before his death; A large humanoid construct of elaborately designed orichalcum armor, resembling an inevitable of incredible power and stature. He also wielded an orichalcum greatsword that shone with golden white fire.
    Worshipers of the late Orichalcum Uron are often constructs, but humanoid followers are far from uncommon. They tend to wear gold or bronze robes and wear gold or bronze armor. Many who are not warforged themselves like to wear armor that makes them look as though they are. The most important creeds of this Uron are to be strong, to be brave in the face of doom and to fight until your final seconds. Paladins and crusaders are many among his worshipers and as of any faith, clerics are as well of course, though they tend to favor melee above other combat roles.
    Clerics of The Orichalcum Uron have access to the Good, Glory, Law and Warforged domains. The Orichalcum Uron's holy symbol is a depiction of his sword, which was put somewhere secret upon his death. His favored weapon is the greatsword. The Orichalcum Uron's alignment is Lawful good.

    The Moonsilver Uron (Lesser God)
    It is said that The Moonsilver Uron was forged by chance where moonlight shone over a place where The Far Realm touched down momentarily on the plane of Arborea, and The Moonsilver Uron was forged by chance in a mere instant. He embodies the aspects of freedom, love and change. Like the rest of the Urons, The Moonsilver Uron was the first to give moonsilver to ancient mankind but tearing off plates and forging them was hardly the task the Uron had to accomplish as the chaotic magic of the Uron and his metal allowed it to flow from him like water and take the shape of swords and armor at his feet. Like his companions who traveled to the material plane, The Moonsilver Uron's soul was dispersed across it to give souls to another quarter of the warforged population. Warforged that have the soul of this Uron are often wild, free and quick to adapt to change. They are also known to be dancers, singers and modify their bodies several times over their life. The Moonsilver Uron is depicted as being a tall, thin inevitable or warforged of flexable, almost fluid plates of silver with a near mirror shine. He is also said to have a chain of knives wrapped around his shoulder and back.
    Worshipers of the late Moonsilver Uron are often constructs, but nearly half are humanoids who love the dead Uron's sense of freedom and love. It is important in the worship of the Uron that happiness is preserved at the sacrifice of order, and that harm is not done to innocent life. Clerics and other worshipers of The Moonsilver Uron tend to wear white or black robes with lots of silver jewelery, chains and armor. Rogues, bards and sorcerers are common among his following.
    Clerics of The Moonsilver Uron have access to the Chaos, Good, Moon and Warforged Domains. The Moonsilver Uron's holy symbol depicts several silver crescent moons interlocking around a silvery jem. His favored weapon is the spiked chain. The Moonsilver Uron's alignment is Chaotic good.

    The Jade Uron (Lesser God)
    It is argued by many that with the godly talent and skill of The Jade Uron, that he forged himself out of raw element. What many more people believe is that The Jade Uron was created in the heart of the material plane when it was aligned with each of the inner planes, thus imbuing him with elemental mastery. Elemental fire was his furnace, elemental earth was his anvil, elemental air was his bellows and elemental water was his slack tub. He embodies the aspects of hardiness, skill and craftsmanship. The Jade Uron was the first to introduce Jade(precursor to the green stone) as a metal that could be used for most anything metal could. He took parts of his body with his masterful skill and almost ringed weaponry and armor of the finest craft from the material with his bare hands and a hammer stroke. The Jade Uron's soul dispersed into one quarter of the warforged bodies upon his death, just like his three brethren, the heart of raw element turned metal imbued within them. Warforged that have the soul of this Uron are often sombre, hardy and skilled craftsmen. Many that have this Uron's soul are also natural artificers or item crafting arcane casters. The Jade Uron is depicted as a stout inevitable or warforged of great height, wearing robes and an apron that have been blackened by a forge. It is also said that The Jade Uron could change his entire body from one form of elemental jade to the next at will. He was never seen without his artifact hammer, be it in his hand or belt.
    Worshipers of the late Jade Uron are usually constructs, and in fact that makes up at least 75% of his following. Craftsmen of any race are still attracted to this Uron. Clerics of The Jade Uron often wear what a blacksmith would, and sometimes wear clothing and armor that depict their favored of the elements, or even multiple elements at once. Like their late god, they are rarely seen without hammers.
    Clerics of The Jade Uron have access to the Air, Craft, Fire, Earth, Warforged and Water domains. The Jade Uron's holy symbol depicts the Uron's hammer composed of four elements that meet at the center. His favored weapon is the warhammer. The Jade Uron's alignment is Lawful neutral.

    The Starmetal Uron (Lesser God)
    As the tale goes, The Starmetal Uron was forged when a Ancient god of fate plucked a meteor of adamantine from the sky and by altering chance in only the way an Ancient could, the meteor warped into the shape of the fully functional and alive Starmetal Uron. Because of the sheer amount of fate that was poured into the Uron's body, it warped the adamantine into the material we now call starmetal. Like his brothers, The Starmetal Uron forged tools and wares from his body to give to mortals in hopes to guide their fate down a better path for the multiverse. The Starmetal Uron's soul also dispersed among the warforged, as one might assume. Warforged that have the soul of this Uron are frequently thoughtful, planning and frequently thinking in ways in some way different from their kin. Those with The Starmetal Uron's soul within them have a talent for divination, arcane magic and predicting or changing fate. The Soulsteel Uron is depicted as a normal warforged or inevitable covered in extremely articulated plates of polished steel, though it often shone with an otherworldly luster. His body was also covered in arcane runes, and his belt held a dark colored kilt with many trinkets. The Starmetal Uron also typically held a wand or staff in one of it's hands.
    Worshipers of the late Starmetal Uron are most often constructs, but is of course not ignored by many arcanists, diviners and those obsessed with fate. Clerics of The Starmetal Uron typically wear dark colored robes, favoring blue or grey and wield wands of staves of steel or adamantine. Many times they will wear armor of polished steel with the same arcane runes of The Starmetal Uron.

The Starmetal Uron's holy symbol depicts a polished steel gauntlet pointed down and on top of a rolled up scroll. His favored weapon is the quarterstaff. The Starmetal Uron's alignment is Lawful Neutral.

    The Soulsteel Uron(Lesser God)
    The Tale of The Soulsteel Uron is far different from those of the four other Urons. The Soulsteel Uron is an outcast, a fiendish creation of black metals found only in the deepest pits of the lower planes. It is said he was forged by thousands of demons or devils, and given an unholy spark of life from countless tortured souls that make up his body. Unlike the rest of the Urons, The Soulsteel Uron was not doomed to die with the others, as he found an unholy technique that would grant him a longer life at the cost of the energy granted to him by the tortured souls he was composed of. He also did not help mortals create the warforged and with these two factors involved, his soul was not dispersed throughout the material plane to give the warforged life. He lived in quiet solitude in a pit of the lower planes until fifteen years ago. He saw Shello dying, life falling from it like water over a cliff and into darkness and this is when The Soulsteel Uron for unknown reasons decided no longer to hold onto his unholy life and died. His soul escaped, but no known scholar knows to where. Many believe the Uron's unholy soul flits about throughout the mists of Shello, and because of this they also believe that the twisted race of the rageforged is his doing. The Soulsteel Uron was depicted as a massive construct of twisted black metal and a form that resembled a terrible undead or demonic creatures. Spikes and blades were common features on his armor, as were the tortured faces of the souls in his body. He wielded a grand terrifying sword made of the same material of his body.
    Unlike his fellow Urons, the late Soulsteel Uron has little to no real worshipers. Also unlike the rest of his now dead kin, none of them are warforged. A small number of black cults on Arcnus Mortis worship the Soulsteel Craftsman as a symbol for deathly creations and the black forge. Those few cults can rarely be seen as different from members of Death's Hand or the Cernin Guard, as both wear spiked black armor and wield similar swords. The only difference is that the Cult of The Soulsteel Uron has the Uron's unholy symbol about their necks.
    Clerics of The Soulsteel Uron have access to the Craft, Darkness, Evil and Warforged domains. The Soulsteel Uron's unholy symbol is a depiction of his face, a mockery of life and death in the shape of a metal death mask. His favored weapon is the bastardsword. The Soulsteel Uron's alignment is Neutral evil.

    Default Re: NotD Gods: The Five Urons

    Normally I'm not one for robot gods* but in this case I approve. They're well written and flavorful.

    *Not that I have anything against them, just that I've rarely ever seen them done well. Though I did start working on Erbauer, the Great Builder and god of both dwarven kind and the steel men (warforged).

    I pretty much blended the idea of the alchemical exalt epic destinies the demented one made, then focused them into single entities and made them how I might see gods in Mechanus.
