The Stockwood Scrolls
The Stern, Shield of the Golden Hills
Symbol: Iron band
Alignment: Lawful good
Favoured Weapon: “Hammersong” (warhammer)
Gaerdal Ironhand (gair-dahl eye-urn-hand), the gnome god of vigilance and combat, is lawful good. He and his followers defend gnomes and gnome settlements from hostile outsiders and practice their skills ceaselessly in order to protect their homelands from danger. He and his followers are rather stern and dour, being dedicated to the arts of war and defense, and as a result, are anomalies among the fun-loving gnomes.
