Crom
He dwells on a great mountain. What use to call on him? Little he cares if men live or die. Better to be silent than to call his attention to you; he will send you dooms, not fortune! He is grim and loveless, but at birth he breathes power to strive and slay into a man's soul. What else shall men ask of the gods?

Crom is the head of the Cimmerian pantheon of cruel gods, sending forth doom or death from his seat on the great mountain of Mount Crom, or Ben Morgh, the holiest place in Cimmeria.

To pray to Crom is a pointless task, as it will only invoke his anger. Prayer is a sign of weakness, and Crom has little patience for the weak. Cimmerians prefer not to attract his attention, and if his name is muttered, it's invariably in the form of an oath or a curse.

Nominally, every Cimmerian is a follower of Crom, but there is no established clergy devoted to him, he doesn't inspire any rituals, and the people bid him no sacrifice besides using the strength he granted them to take what they want from life and to cleave the skulls of their enemies.

Crom doesn't send avatars into the world to meddle with the affairs of men. Some claim that the voice of Crom can be heard in the harsh winter winds of Cimmeria.

Crom doesn't care to share his divine power with mortals. It's enough that he breathes life into mortals when they are born.
