Kord is the god athletic competition and the lord of battle. He revels in strength, battlefield prowess, and skill bravery. Fighters and athletes revere him. He is a mercurial god, unbridled and wild. Kord favors prayers that are brief, lasting just a few minutes. They’re joyous, dancing ceremonies at the end of a battle or a long-term feat of strength. He favors rhythmic chanting and clapping, the louder the better.

A temple to Kord is often a sprawling dwelling open to the air. Some feature gymnasiums, fields for athletic competition, and gladiator arenas. They provide training for nearly every physical endeavor. Would-be clerics of Kord come into the faith one of two ways. Most succeed on some feat of strength (often at a local carnival or sporting competition), drawing the admiration of a cleric of Kord. Less often, a youth attains notoriety for his sickly nature, but a cleric of Kord notices how passionately the child craves strength. Either way, becoming a cleric of Kord involves rigorous physical training, including calisthenics, running, and practice in any number of specific sports.
