Garl Glittergold is the patron of the rock gnome race. He did not create the rock gnomes, he merely “found” them. However his association with the rock gnomes led to many of they’re differences with the other gnome subraces. Dwarves revere him as “Garal” a brother or nephew of Moradin, and he is a patron of some dwarven spellcasters. Various human pantheons see him as either a guise of one of they’re deities or otherwise an ally or servant thereof, for instance the worshipers of the Imperial pantheon see him as a Titan who often adventures with Hermes. The deity worshipped by many kobolds as they’re patron, Kurtulmak is a foe of Garl and is seen as a sort of devil-figure. Gnomes revere a number of Garl Glittergold’s “helpers” and saints of a sort and most also practice ancestor worship and have animistic beliefs.
