    Reorx is the divine power of creation. He is the supreme god of Dwarves, and holds sway over Gnomes as well. Kender see him as a grandfather figure. Reorx is patron to smiths and craftsmen from all races. Reorx works with Shinare to spur dwarven economies.

    With his forging hammer and the direction of the High God, Reorx forged the world, the stars, and the souls of mortals into existence from the essence of Chaos. Later, Reorx crafted the Graygem, which trapped the essence of Chaos. Reorx hates and fears Chaos, referring to him as the “Father of All and of Nothing”.

    His appearance varies from time to time, but what is common is the he has a luxuriant beard, long curly hair, and he wears only the finest clothes with buttons of gold. His shirts are usually ruffled, and always has on a hat with a red plume on top.

    Reorx to the Dwarves is known as the forger of the world and is praised as the god of the forge fire. Just like all dwarves, he loves to gamble, and has in the past gambled on almost anything. He has also been known to offer others a taste of his home brew Dwarf Spirits, usually just before he will make a bet.

    He is the friend of Gilean.
