Garl lives in the gnomish realm of the Golden Hills on the plane of Bytopia.
Garl, as god of Luck and Trickery, leads the gnomish pantheon. He is the arch enemy of kobolds and their patron deity Kurtulmak. According to legend, Garl collapsed the cave-system hall of Kurtulmak, while the kobold deity was hosting Asmodeus.
In many campaign settings, the gnome pantheon of gods consists of the leader, Garl Glittergold, as well as Baervan Wildwanderer, Baravar Cloakshadow, Flandal Steelskin, Gaerdal Ironhand, Nebelun, Segojan Earthcaller, and Urdlen.
Garl Glittergold is the most popular of the gnomish deities, and honored, in one way or another, by nearly all gnomes.
Garl's clerics wear war helms and gold belts and are called "Glitterbrights."
Temples and ritualsEdit
Garl's holy day is the new moon and he is worshipped in cave halls. Gold is sacrificed to him monthly.
