In many campaign settings for the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, Clanggedin Silverbeard is the dwarf deity of battle.

In many campaign settings, the dwarven pantheon of gods consists of the leader Moradin, as well as Abbathor, Berronar Truesilver, Clanggedin Silverbeard, Dugmaren Brightmantle, Dumathoin, Muamman Duathal, and Vergadain. Other dwarven gods may be present in different campaign settings.

Clanggedin's realm is named Mount Clanggedin after himself, located on the plane of Arcadia.

Clergy and Temples[]

Clanggedin's priests wear silver war helms and chain mail. He is worshipped before and during battle, and weapons are sacrificed to him in honor.
