Lay Practices/Rituals:

Cash donations are often tossed directly into the well at the center of the temple, along with a whisper of what the prayer is for.

In lieu of donations to the local temple, many Dwarves will build something and offer it to the local cleric. These clerics will, in turn, sell these items to pay for the upkeep of the temple.

Cleric Rites/Rituals:

All prayers to Zaghara are whispered. Calling out his name is considered rude, as disturbing his slumber would anger him.

Temples:

Temples to Zaghara are built around a central well. The well is dug very deep and made to appear bottomless. The temples themselves are often built into a cylindrical tower-like structure, often mimicking The Spire in look and feel.

The temple to Zaghara is large but modest, especially compared to the other temples built around The Spire. While religion is generally considered part of 'closed' Dwarf culture, the realities of The City have forced the priests there to change. The temple is open to all, and even the non-faithful are allowed to pray to Zaghara as long as their coin is good. Rites of worship are still closed to anyone not Dwarf or Halfling.

Myths/Legends:

Zaghara is one of the three deities connected to The Spire. He is believed to have created the world and everything in it. His last creation was The Spire. After making it, he descended below the earth, where he sleeps after working for so long.

Many Dwarf believe the monsters that plague the world are born from his nightmares.
