Minderhal respects Asmodeus, due to the shared border of their divine realms and Asmodeus' experience and power. While he welcomes the Ancestral Spirits into his realm out of tradition, he is secretly jealous of them since many giants have abandoned his worship in favour of theirs. Minderhal is coolly cordial with Fandarra: his unholy text refers amiably to her and contains prayers to both, and they have never argued since the Age of Legend.
Due to their shared hunting tradition, Minderhal is friendly toward Erastil, who in turn treats him as an embarrassing black sheep. Minderhal's declared enemy is Urazra, against whom he advises his followers to rely on traditions and crafting, instead of direct aggression.
Against other gods, Minderhal prefers avoidance to confrontation, which he considers to be diminishing even as he knows that his influence outside of giant tribes is relatively very limited.
Minderhal was once worshiped throughout the ancient empire of Thassilon as god of the common people and the enslaved giants. There are only a few modern worshipers of Minderhal, primarily giants on the Storval Plateau region of Varisia, though their sacrifices are but a trifle compared to the former glories at the height of his rule. Aside from giantkind, Minderhal also claims many of the Kellid inhabitants of the northern reaches of the Realm of the Mammoth Lords, who hold giants in extremely high esteem.
