Dranngvit is the bitter dwarven goddess of debt and vengeance, and is seen by her people as a necessary evil rather than a beloved deity. Most dwarves make offerings to her only when they know they have wronged someone, and only those who are consumed by hatred and vengeance choose her as a patron.1 Even though she oversees the righting of wrongs, most believe her to be more interested in vengeance than justice.2


Dranngvit lives away from the dwarven Heavenly domain of Forgeheart in self-imposed exile, far from the rest of the pantheon. She has only her hound Hefnd as a companion.3


Dranngvit is Torag's half-sister, although some legends claim she was supposed to have been Torag's wife but lost out to Folgrit. Dranngvit may be the mother of Kols, but even if she is, Folgrit still treats Kols like her son.41 The Debt Minder gets along well with her half-brother Magrim, who helps her encourage dwarves to enact their vengeance within their lifetimes so that their unfinished business does not cause them to rise as undead. She has poor relations with all the other gods of her pantheon,5 although she does have some sympathy for Droskar.6

Dranngvit on Golarion

One of the eight levels of the dwarven Sky Citadel of Koldukar was dedicated to Dranngvit. After it was overrun by the orcs of the Hold of Belkzen in -3709 AR, this meaning was lost, although some of the structures dedicated to the goddess still stand today in what is now the city of Urgir.7

Church of Dranngvit

Although Dranngvit (along with Droskar) is one of the least revered gods on the dwarven pantheon,8 she has a sizeable church and following in the Sky Citadel of Kraggodan on the border of Nirmathas. Members of her church are sometimes brought in to de-escalate disputes between the dwarven clans of Kraggodan, especially when subtler, less direct methods are preferred. The arrival of Dranngvit's dour-faced interrogators has caused even the most hot-headed rabble rouser to reconsider their tactics.9


She is particularly popular among the dour dwarven caravan guards of the Runtash River valley known as the Runtash Roughnecks. Their endless battles with the giants of the Mindspin Mountains causes them to forsake the more benign dwarven gods.10

Any dwarf who is convicted of a serious offense may call upon Dranngvit for atonement, but if she is unresponsive, the punishment is carried out.11
