Gods of Xhuul: Ninkilim and Raziya

NINKILIM, god of rats, thieves, sewers
Alignment: Neutral
Domains: Animal, Darkness, Water, Trickery
Subdomains: Flotsam, Flowing, Fur, Deception, Thievery
Symbol: Rat



Ninkilim appears as a large demonic-looking rat.  He is the patron god of rats and thieves.  Sewers are the sacred ground to the Rat God and it is within these foul-smelling places, that shrines and temples to Ninkilim can be found.  Any altar to the rat god will usually be piled with trinkets, refuse, discarded items and food.  Clerics to the Rat God wander the streets, alleyways and sewers collecting all manner of junk and items to take to their temples and shrines to decorate them.  Occasionally, something valuable will be found and kept hidden in secret places within the temple as part of its treasury.  As the patron diety to thieves who wish the blessings of the Rat God to gain access to secure places in order to steal, many thieves tithe to the god's temples a portion of their ill-gotten gains.






RAZIYA, goddess of love, wealth and trade
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Domains: Charm, Chaos, Luck, Travel
Subdomains: Love, Exploration, Trade
Symbol: Hand Mirror


Raziya is the goddess followed by merchants, prostitutes and noble families.  Raziya is a vain goddess and carries with her a magical hand mirror with which she looks upon to gaze upon herself.  This hand mirror also acts as a scrying device in which she uses to view upon distant places and persons.  Anything reflected upon it's surface will instantly be revealed if it is concealed by magical means such as illusions, invisibility, or shape-shifted, much like a True-Seeing ability.  Raziya looks favorably upon those who take risks in travel and business in the pursuit of wealth.  All clerics of Raziya must be beautiful and handsome (minimum 15 Charisma).  Temples to Raziya serve as banks and merchant guildhouses.
