Yelm Fertility Fire/Sky Death

Official Cult


Author: christopherallison

Yelm is the god of the Middle Fire and brother of Lodril and Dayzatar. Yelm was not always bound to his path in the sky, but once traveled freely. His disastrous feud with Orlanth was one of the most important struggles of the Gods War, for when Yelm was slain by Orlanth his demise marked the Lesser Darkness which filled all the cosmos with fear, allowing chaos to seep in. Yelm is sometimes shown as the golden solar disc, often as middle-aged man clad in imperial garb, or in one of his lesser incarnations such as the spear god, horse god, etc.

Creation Notes

Restricted to male Pure Horse People. Members of the cult must ride and herd only horses, and may not practice agriculture. The god is called “Yu-Kargzant” by the Pure Horse People, but is widely called “Yelm” by everyone else. Female Pure Horse People usually worship the Feathered Horse Queen, a representative of Ernalda.
