Klazath, God of War

“WAR IS NECESSARY

CREATION IS CONFLICT

BATTLE IS ETERNAL”

This time in our series of deity writeups for DCC we have Klazath, God of War.

Man, I had trouble with this one.

First of all, a lawful war deity seems reaaally contradictory to me to begin with. Secondly, what’s more boring than “a god of war”? If it’s been made into a mainstream video game it’s really hard to pull yourself away from the usual tropes of Mars, Ares, Thor and what have you… And third, I’d sort of written myself into a knot with my pantheon: my version of Ulesh, the God of Peace (available here) is a former war god, and quite formidable on his own. I didn’t want to revisit the same themes, but still had to take into account the relationship between the deities while generating this one.

So, here is Klazath: all of the war-god tropes pushed into a single piece of bulky, animated armor. Should be weird enough for DCC, right?

Cheers,

AMP
