Kelanen (Greyhawk Action)
Hero-god of swords, sword skills, and balance Kelanen only recently crossed the border between the mortal and the divine, having spent decades as a "quasi-deity" with unusual abilities, but unable to grant spells. It is only in the past century that he gained the ability to empower priests, and he has been gathering suitable agents since that time.
Kelanen' s true form is a handsome slender man with a vertical silvery scar on the right side of his face, though he rarely appears as himself. He can alter his form at will to any humanoid. His scar manifests in any guise when he becomes angry.
He promotes skill with swords and promotes the balance of things in the world, good versus evil and chaos versus law, intervening when he feels things have fallen out of balance for one side or the other.
Kelanen' s priests relentlessly practice their sword skills and spend much of their time training others. They are expected to work to maintain the balance of all things, and they prefer melee combat to the use of missiles. Their advocacy of balance means they often form temporary alliances with people of extreme alignments, breaking the alliance when the balance is restored. They are restricted to the use of all types of swords, daggers, and crossbows, and are not permitted to use any other weapons. Their formal vestments are gray or blue-gray clothing, silver or platinum jewelry.
