Hanseath was the lesser dwarven deity of war, carousing, and alcohol.[3][note 1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Hanseath was known as "the Bearded One" for the thick hair that obscured most of his face. He represented the festive side of the dwarven culture.[3]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Hanseath ordered his followers to wage war against the typical enemies of dwarves such as goblinoids, orcs, giants, and drow.[3]

Worshipers[edit | edit source]

Brewers held him in high regard, as did dwarf barbarians and any other dwarf who charged headlong into battle heedless of odds.[3]

During the glory days of Myth Drannor, the dwarves who maintained the Shrine of Hanseath held the title of the brewmaster and were producing sacred beers and ales that possessed different beneficial magical properties.[4]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Hanseath originates from the "setting-neutral" sourcebook Races of Stone and it is as such unclear to what extent, if any, he is worshiped within the Forgotten Realms setting.
