I've never found the description of Daxdarius as the War Bear to be all
that convincing. To me, it's just stray padding that should have been
ruthlessly culled in the editing process.
Death and Balance (not Harmony) seems to me the appropriate runes for
There are three feats of Daxdarius.
- The killing of King Blue. Only tangentially referred to in the
Entekosiad. I think the story about Urvairinus versus YarGan in the
Glorious ReAscent is about him and that Urvarinus (like Argrath) ended
up with the credit in Dara Happa. Worshippers performing this feat are
protected against sharp weapons but must use blunt weapons and dismember
- The destruction of the Andam Horde. Gloriously retold in the
Entekosiad. When fighting in battle, the worshippers must be wearing
arms and armour made by the Third Eye Blue and their spear must be
golden. They can step aside to avoid a charge. In battle, the
worshippers are protected against enemy weapons, drive away foes that
are not killed and can pursue a fleeing enemy for a day and a night.
- Joining the High Gods. This really just allows the worshipper to
partake in Pelandan religious life as a follower of the High Gods and
not a follower of a lesser god (like say Bisos). They would have access
to general Jernotian magics and may also use some sorcery through Gurgo.
Daxdarius's worshippers are organized along military lines. I did have
an idea about the local leader of the Daxdarius cult being known as the
Successor (but Dynast would also work) as a Hellenistic quibble.
