Symbol: Icy battleaxe
Domains: Knowledge, Law
Favored Weapon: Battleaxe


Vengeance is a necessary evil. Retribution should be swift, cold, and carefully measured.

Clergy and Temples

Most dwarves pay Kalthis worship only when they know they have wronged someone. The only dwarves who choose her as their actually patron deity are normally those consumed by hatred and nothing else.

Clerics of Kalthis are often called upon to perform some act of vengeance or retribution on some dwarf’s behalf.

Shrines to Kalthis are maintained in the large dwarven cities, primarily. There are no large temples.


Kalthis is a stern-looking female dwarf with a ice-covered battleaxe.


Certain followers of Kalthis perform a daily ritual to receive a special blessing from the deity. Return an act of wrongdoing with an act of vengeance—even a petty vengeance will do. Gain a +4 sacred bonus on all Diplomacy, Intimidate, Knowledge (all), and Sense Motive checks.
