Hanspur is a minor god of the waterways worshiped primarily in the River Kingdoms. Hanspur is the god of the watery domains of the Sellen River and considers himself lord of all who travel his domain. As a travel god his shrines always lie just outside the town gates. Despite this, he is still paid at least lip service by the peoples of the River Kingdoms, as he smites those who displease him by sinking their boats and flooding their lands.

Hanspur is depicted in art as a bearded man with spiky, reed-like hair. His symbol is a rat either walking on water or standing on a flooding piece of driftwood, and he is known to travel with a dire rat companion.
Church of Hanspur
Hanspur is considered to be a forbidden god and his worship is banned in many nations because of one of his faith's rituals. His worshipers travel with a lone companion and then one night drown them in the Sellen river, their god's domain. The legends of Hanspur's beginning may explain why Hanspur demands observance of this morbid ritual.
There is no formal garb for his priests, who dress in simple river clothing such as short-legged pants, ponchos, and sandals. They are transient bordering on vagrant, moving from village to village, bartering and trading with information, magic, and mail. They also hire themselves out as guides.
Temples and shrines
Worshipers of Hanspur don't have many formal temples, instead favoring shrines built on driftwood, and released downriver on small rafts, carried downstream on a wayward and unplanned path. There is one "magnificent" (basically a bunch of rafts tied together) shrine to Hanspur, on the northern shore of the Kallas Lake between the River Kingdoms and Kyonin, and the cultists who live in the village of Riverton east of the lake have also constructed a shrine to the river god.
