Champions of TormD&D Insider Article

By Eytan Bernstein and Erik Scott de Bie

Wherever villainy triumphs and injustice reigns, the servants of Torm bring truth and light to the darkest shadows. The divine servants of the Loyal Fury will not rest until they defeat the countless evils that beset the good folk of the Realms. Torm is one of the brightest divine figures in the Realms, and his priests are known for their valor and self-sacrifice. Should you choose the path of the champion of justice, walk tall and proud, carrying the weight of history and nobility in all that you do, bolstered with the feats, powers, organizations, and items in this article.

Before the Spellplague, Torm, Tyr, and Ilmater formed a “triad” of benevolent deities. This covenant has been renewed in the wake of Tyr’s death, with Torm, Ilmater, and Bahamut, who was promoted to occupy much the same knightly place Torm did for Tyr. While Torm is technically the god of law while Bahamut is charged with justice, a considerable amount of overlap exists between the deities, and Torm is known widely as a god of justice in addition to cold law. Torm and his priests err on the side of benevolence when determining lawful matters. The gods of the Triad make a perfect set of judges: Bahamut’s desire for justice balanced by Ilmater’s mercy, with Torm as the calm center.
