Core Belief
Dungrimm is one of the most popular Brathmordakin in the pantheon of the dwarves being the Brathmordakin of battle, valor, bravery, honor, defense, the dead, the moon. He is most well known for taking the souls of the dead to Khaz'A'Dentrumm. Khaz'A'Dentrumm being a hall where the dwarves that die are bidded upon by the Brathmordakin.

Dungrimm tends to be depicted as a being wearing an iron mask covered in dark colored clothes. The symbol used to represent Dungrimm is his iron mask. For this reason many devout followers of Dungrimm wear an iron mask as a way to praise the Brathmordakin of death.


Particula Beliefs of Denominations and Groups
Even though all dwarves believe in the faith of the brathmordakin there is still a large number of different religious groups and denominations. Even though these denominations are very close and basically believe in the same deities there are still some beliefs and rituals that make them different.



Dverga eron da Kirkja Rhun
When one dies their soul leaves their body, it is Belka who gathers the souls and then waits until the night for Dungrimm to come down from Kaz’A’Dentrumm to collect them. Dungrimm looks at the souls that Belka has collected and discards the mediocre and sinful souls. Mediocre souls are given back to Yemekar so he can resmith them and reintegrate them into the world as a new being, and sinful souls are sent to Vuur'Dor where they would anguish for eternity. The Souls of the honorable and worthy are taken to the halls of the dead. Once there the souls are bidded upon by the Brathmordakin. The dwarf would then go to the realm of whichever brathmordakin has beaded higher for them, spending eternity there.


Da Kirkja Dverga
People that fall under the denomination of Da Kirkja Dverga believe that when a Dwarf dies, their souls are carried by Dungrimm to be judged by the Brathmordakin for their actions in life. If bidded upon the dwarf will serve the Brathmordakin that has bided on him/her. 

In this denomination it is believed that the moon is where all the Brathmordakin reside. In it they watch over mortals and welcome them when they die. The Moon is only accessible by the most honorable and zealous of Dwarves, who had shown either great valor in battle or great diligence in their life.



Temple of Az’Adar
This denomination belives in the idea of Prophets and High Prophets and their power to divinate the will of the Brathmordakin, including Dungrimm’s.
Dungrimm and the other Brathmordakin where created after Yemekar vanished Khorvad.



Ar Yemarin Anaros
In Ar Yemarin Anaros Dungrimm is the son of Anbella and Yemekar, making him one of the ancestor lords. Yemekar created Dungrimm with clay and embedded into him the passion of war and placed him on the world. He is said to have led the early dwarves into battle with any imperfections or blemishes of the world that were not the intentions of Yemekar.

The Ar Yemarin Anaros believe that Dungrimm does not directly intervene in battles, but does influence all factors leading up to a battle. Despite Grimdugan’s distrustful nature, Dungrimm works the closest with him. This belief has been formulated based on the fact that greed is one of the most apparent causes of war and strife, it is accustomed to find ways in appeasing Dungrimm by hunting great monsters and slaying things that threaten dwed worldwide. Equally, hard training and honing fighting skills for the coming battle is another way to appease Dungrimm and be given his blessing.

This denomination also believes that shrines dedicated to Dungrimm should serve as a waystone for lost spirits. In addition, they believe that the moon is the top of Yemekar’s forge while the sun is the bottom. Because of this they reason that Kaz’A’Dentrumm is not located on the moon, and hence Dungrimm is not associated with the moon.


Da Arkammar oz Zarhere

Dwarves in this denomination belive that they have been commanded by Dungrimm to hunt down the spawn of Khorvad into extinction.




It is said by this denomination that Dungrimm and the other Brathmordakin are the children of Yemekar and Anbella.

The High Prophet of this denomination is belived to be the embodyment of the Brathmordakin in the mortal planes. His will being the will of the Brathmordakin.



Clan Ireheart

Though not a religious denomination per say, Clan Ireheart has a special way to look at Dungrimm. Especially when it comes to the belief that the Emperor Paragon Dragon Slayer Kjell Ireheart was chosen by Dungrimm for being his most loyal follower, and that he was ascended in a blaze of fire and explosions to godship among those of the Brathmordakin, bearing the new name of Kjellos, who is the God of Justice, and guardian of the Legion and the clan.
Although not a member of the Brathmordahkin, Kjellos is considered a Daemon amongst the realm and assists Dungrimm in guiding the dead souls to his plain. Whilst also enacting justice as a spirit acting against those who commit crimes against dwarfkind.
