Mostali pantheon — the ancient way
During the second age many dwarfs saw how their own follies and heresies had led to the catastrophe of the Gbaji Wars. The Octamonists know that dwarfs cannot survive or repair the world by competing with younger races — they teach that dwarfs must leave the world behind and abandon such fripperies as diamond dwarf status and iron. The Octamonists are rock-bound conservatives. Their philosophy was never a major threat to dwarfdom, but adherents exist in every dwarf stronghold.
The octamonists often use the symbol of an octagon as a symbol of their belief. Each section of the octagon is composed of one of the ancient dwarf minerals. Clay, iron, and diamond are conspicuous by their absence.
