Jascar is the Suel god of Hills and Mountains. His holy symbol is a snow-capped mountain peak.

Description

Jascar appears as a muscular human male with a dark beard and breastplate of shining silver. He lacks the color and features of the Suel race, despite his origins. His visage is said to strike terror into the hearts of goblins and orcs. He is sometimes depicted as a pegasus or a horse. He wields a great hammer, which is the bane of all undead.

Relationships

Jascar is the brother of Fortubo, and a close ally of Phaulkon. He is the sworn enemy of Beltar. Jascar associates little with other gods, who see him as driven and aloof.

Clergy and temples

Jascar’s symbol is a snow-capped mountain peak. Though chiefly a human god, Jascar is also honored by many dwarves and gnomes. He teaches his followers to stand against orcs and goblinoids, as well as those who marr the beauty of hills and mountains. He stresses that the riches found beneath the earth are not to be plundered by evil, but were placed there as rewards for the good.

Jascar’s priests often lead crusades against evil nonhumans, traveling overland or underground. They also teach the commonfolk how to defend against the tactics of these beings. The priesthood surveys for precious metals, and advises miners on safe tunneling and environmental responsibility. Jascarian priests are often viewed as dependable, if single-minded. The warhammer is the favored weapon of the priesthood.

Jascar is very popular in Irongate, Onnwal, and Sunndi. He also has a minor following in Greyhawk.

Myths and legends

Jascar is often associated with horses or pegasi because those are the forms he took in a great battle with Beltar.
