The Crimson Covenant
Valkur, The God of Sailors
Valkur (pronounced val-KURR), the Captain of the Waves, is the lesser deity of sailors, ships, favorable winds, and naval combat.
Valkur’s philosophy often puts him in conflict with the capricious ocean-goddess Umberlee and he is a sworn enemy of the Deities of Fury. He is friendly with Selûne who guides sailors across the sea. More so than that it is believed that Valkur may have once been a mortal sailor who challenged Umberlee and won.
The church of Valkur is loosely organized. Many clerics serve as captains or sailors aboard ships and they usually meet each other only if they happen to serve on the same ship or be in the same port. The clergy is known for helping sailors who were down on their luck.
