Bleredd (BLAIR-ed) is the Oeridian god of Metal, Mines, and Smiths. His holy symbol is an iron mule, as sturdy and patient as he is.
Bleredd is the one who originally taught the Oeridians iron-working. He is a pragmatic sort, preferring work to idle talk. He created many of the artifacts used by his family, including his hammer of thunderbolts, Fury, and his wife’s hammer Skull Ringer.
Bleredd is the husband of Ulaa.
In Bleredd’s creed, the gifts of the earth exist to be taken and used to create practical works. Bleredd’s followers are expected to be strong of body and will. Bleredd encourages the free flow of information; the knowledge of smithcraft should never be hoarded, but taught freely to anyone with a talent for it. Those who are miserly in sharing what they have learned ought to be punished.
Bleredd is an Oeridian God primarily worshiped by gnomes, dwarves, and humans.
Bleredd’s favored weapon is the warhammer (any size), though any pick is also considered preferred. His clerics explore the depths beneath the Oerth, work metals, and search for rare or magical ores. They travel to find knowledge that will improve their craft or to teach others.
Clerics of Bleredd have access to the domains of Creation, Fire, Earth and Strength.
Bleredd is known throughout the Flanaess.
