Although Gnarion started upon
the path long before Stasis, he did not reach its end until long after. A
hero of the Ice Gnomes, Gnarion never gave up his battle against Frostine
and his chosen. Against centuries of subjugation and those among his own
people that preferred the ways of Frostine, Gnarion persisted and freed
the Ice Gnomes. For that amazing act, he ascended to the Counsil in 390
Before he officially became a
deity, Gnarion had long been perceived as one. By the time he ascended,
most would have said he was already one, having lived far beyond the
normal span of life for a gnome. Even those that dislike him admire his
tenacity and heart. One of the greatest parables of Gnarion’s faith is
the tale of Frostine’s speech at Gnarion’s ascension, where even his
greatest enemy acknowledged the strength of the gnome: “Even the might
of one thousand blizzards could not chill the heart nor halt the march of
Gnarion. He is unfortunately deserving of this.”
As a deity, Gnarion’s influence has spread
mildly. His faithful, much in the mold of their patron, are willing to
slowly bring about others. As with all of their activities, there is no
rush. Their ceremonies are the longest of any faith.
Gnarion has won the respect of
virtually every Counsil member, save one, Sutyr. His faith persecutes no
other faiths now that Frostine’s grip is broken. Sutyr, however, the
practitioner and perpetrator of the greatest crime, must be defeated at
Gnarion holds a strong
relationship with Drunnbar, and does not turn away from Hemator’s plight.
It is only in the other cults that Gnarion and his faithful find fault.

Dogma: Every goal can
be accomplished. Survival of as many as possible is the highest goal, to
stave off one’s own death the second. Something worth getting is worth
waiting for. The oppressed cannot accomplish their goals, and must be
freed. Make every effort to accomplish your goals before death comes, and
if you have, do not fear it.
