The Lord of Knowledge
Bards, Sages, Clerics
Description: Oghma is the Vaesir god of knowledge and lore. Worship of Oghma has spread across the continent of Alyfaysia, but is centered in the area of the Feudal Kingdoms, and dwarven or Korsic barbarian homelands. Oghmanian priests consider themselves librarians, and work to collect and store knowledge of all types. Oghma is also often worshipped by bards and skalds, due to their interest in lore and tales. Worshippers of all alignments may be followers of Oghma, as long as knowledge is their guiding philosophy, although evil followers are a minority.
Oghma, while neutral, is a staunch opponent of all demons and their ilk. He is known as The Binder for his ability to imprison and/or banish demonic foes. Some of his clerics focus on this aspect of his portfolio, while maintaining a philosophy of knowledge.
Avatar and Manifestations:
