Callarduran is the power of the svirfnebli, the rock-colored deep gnomes who dig mines and burrows far from their brethren. But Callarduran's no outcast; he led his followers deep underground to encourage diversity among the gnomes. He's on excellent terms with the rest of the gnomish pantheon - though he is, by nature, solitary - and he encourages his faithful to establish trade and communication with the rest of the race. (On the other hand, he despises drow, and charges his people to drive away the dark elves whenever possible.)

Callarduran's realm is called Deephome, constructed not too far from the Golden Hills. It's a place of oppressive weight from above, where the rock groans with the tons of earth piled atop it. Tunnels snake throughout the hill, breaking into caverns of astonishing beauty.

In the center lies the hidden cavern of Callarduran himself, where he keeps a massive stone that's said to be able to control any earth elemental, even the most powerful. The stone's perfectly smooth, sanded over the ages by the god's hands.
