Malvorin RingingHammer is known in Crikland itself, but has a powerful base of followers elsewhere as well. As patron of Mt. Divehi, the most visually-striking mountain visible from outside Crikland, he acquires a great deal of power from passersby and those who live beneath Crikland. Malvorin is also the sponsor of a Demigod named Altrus, known among the elites throughout the Northern Kingdoms and beyond for his clockwork skills. In Crikland, he sponsors the Academy of Mt. Divehi, while in the remote regions of the Delugian Mountains, he is also patron of the Malvorinian Academy, one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

The primary holiday of Malvorin is the Day of the Ringing Hammer, celebrated on the vernal equinox. As opposed to most holidays, this festival is actually a day of hard work. The celebrant spends the day creating items of their trade/craft. All items created by the the celebrant on that particular day are always of masterful quality. These items are usually not sold, but given as gifts, used as offerings to local temples, or as a part of the craftman's personal equipment.
Galbardians are a special subspecies of human who live almost exclusively on the grounds of the Mindollian Academy, though the Church of Malvorin frequently sends them out on quests and for specific purposes. They have long-worshiped Malvorin as a god of termites, and have a symbiotic relationship with a species of termite called Galbarthi, who live inside their human hosts' skin. All Galbardians have incredible skills at wood-working, because their termites can bite through the skin in the palm of the hand so just their head is emerging, and then chew on a piece of wood the Galbardian holds in his hand. Using their telepathic connection, the termite can carve any desired shape, and can even design moving parts and simple machinery.
