Happy new year!
/// Same to you and your Kin ; many glorious games to you.

I would like to play a follower of Daxdarius therefore I am searching for information of his cult.
/// Wow. That's hardcore. The pelandans make good PCs : cultured, fun-loving, good feel for arts etc.

Are there any publications about the cult?
/// Not that I know of.

In The Entekosiad and Lunar Handbook I found some general information on him but not nothing about his worshippers. What would be appropriate keywords, abilities and feats? Does he actually have bear powers? Or are the War Bear and the General two different cults?
/// I remember the pelandan Daxdarius is the First Hoplite and the first general, so his followers could be heavy foot infantry. So they have Death/Combat as their main rune. Officers do have the Mastery Rune. A bit like yelmalions (they also form phalanxes) but without the solar / prudish element (they're pelandans after all).
The neighboring durnvoking barbarians, degenerates as they are, worship (ILH1 I believe) many beast spirits including "Daxdarax the old wolf" : perhaps they propitiate their old victor, admire his power ? I don't remember Daxdarius being identified with a bear anywhere.

There had been a discussion earlier on this forum whether Daxdarius would have the mastery or harmony rune. Any comments on that?
/// Death and Harmony do make an interesting mix. Polaris could have these runes ; I'm not too sure about Daxdarious. But why not ?
