DYV8-05 Dyvinity by Andy McCullough
Molaho Khem: within his burgeoning faith, there are two very different branches in Dyvers. The Followers of the Cracked Shield are devoted to protecting the city, while the Servants of Glory are devoted to destroying the city’s enemies. Each branch considers the tenets of the other to be heresy, and so it is strange to have in your hand a letter from the Emissary of Molaho Khem, the pragmatic gnome and Servant of Glory, asking you to join him in meeting Bojan Starsinger, the Hand of Molaho Khem, Defender of Tricaster and Follower of the Cracked Shield. Is the consolidation of the Molaho Khem cults at hand? Or is this a sign of something greater? Perhaps the Hero god himself has brought about the oncoming slaughter to either search for another hero that will rise in Dyvers defense, or simply to view the carnage of battle.
