Description: Kundo is the union of storm and metal – an assault upon the ears and protective shelter. He is a guardian god, loud and boisterous, obsessed with building and construction. Kundo is the union of storm and metal, a loud and boisterous guardian god obsessed with building and construction. He is the sound of metal on metal, or the roar of the summer rains on the roofs of shelters, or the happy songs sung by those who build and protect.
Depictions of Kundo show him as a laughing Touv man bearing a great shield on one arm and a cluster of saplings under the other. The priests of Kundo build shelters for the poor, teach traditional songs, and strive to protect the people from the dangers of the world. They see themselves as protectors of the weak, and a priest of Kundo will go to great lengths to save those in danger. Ceremonial garb includes highly ornate, but functional, shields and/or breastplates.
Relationships: Kundo is the son of Xanag, goddess of metals, and Vogan, god of rain and storms. Xanag’s beauty entranced Vogan. Damaran infested Kundo’s home with crawling things soon after the creeping demigod’s creation, but fled when Kundo confronted him.
Dogma: Kundo’s followers are expected to protect the weak and save those in danger.
Clergy: Priests and shamans of Kundo build shelters for the poor, teach traditional songs, and strive to protect their people from all dangers. Their favored weapon is the short sword, and they may also wield the atl-atl, chakram, short bow, and staff. They are required to wear shields; these must be ornate but functional, and also serve as their holy symbols.
