Honest question that is not intended as criticism: Why is there a God of Hammers? By title alone, Ares would be the greater deity.

I'm not saying there isn't precedent for it in mythology (there's a God of Cereal in Japanese myths), but... why would this be a prominent god worthy of story? Hammers are not a fundamental force, concept, or element.

I assume there's also a God of Beards? God of Gauntlets? Belt Buckles?

'Okay, gods, we're going to draw straws for who gets what. Zeus gets the Heavens. Neptune gets the Seas. Pluto, the underworld.'

*Hours later*

'I'm afraid we only have Hammers and Jock Straps left...'


I don't know, generally gods with larger purviews are the more powerful ones. A god of hammers in particular would not be shocking but seems it would be pretty minor. An offshoot demigod of a forging god or something.

It does not seem all that impressive of a title honestly. Even if it was a forge god they would have to come up with a reason for this one to be able to do something like this.

Maybe THE forge god that all others draw from or something.

Look Raist bunnies...
