Of Shadow and Flame
The Deor Duguth is an annual dwarvish feast day that celebrates the superiority and favor bestowed on dwarfkind from the ancient creator gods. This holiday is a lighthearted celebration when many clans are able to put their differences aside for a time and celebrate their common bond as dwarves.
Dwarven mythology holds that when the creator gods gave birth to the first children of the world a group was seen as special- the mountain-dwelling family of Dvmir the Allfather. Dvmir was hard-working and clever, but could not easily reach into the depths of the earth for the best building materials for his craft-work, so the creator gods blessed him and his kin with great strength. He and his brother, Starktor Ramfaust used the skulls of mountain rams to strike deep caverns into the earth, where they made mighty homes for themselves.
This holiday is where the sport of Dweorg Ringen is partially derived, and so on this day a special exhibition match is held in a natural cave where combatants fight in a free-for-all with ram skulls instead of their usual swingefausten.
