Days of Strife and Discord
Signa, Goddess of the Forge & Mother of All Dwarves
Signa, The Brand-Hammer, is the founding Matron of the Dwarves. Described as a young dwarven woman with long braided scarlet hair, green tunic, and smith’s apron. Signa forged the dwarves with her craft then bestowed her knowledge upon her children. Her name has a twofold meaning, her hammer and the act of branding runes all revolve around her skill and craft, but her symbol is usually depicted as a red hot hammer that matches her bold hair. Many dwarves consider it a good omen if their children are born with red hair, especially their daughters, but it’s usually teased that the child will inherit Signas temper.
Her edicts are: Take pride in your craft regardless of what it is, preserve knowledge and the your people, speak no boasts that are untrue and show those who do the error of their ways for humility is key to mastery.
