  商业大师the Master Merchant 维古丹Vergadain(读作“VUR-guh-dane”)是矮人商人和大部分非邪恶矮人盗贼的。作为一位阴谋家和流氓,维古丹受到任意中立阵营、从事着贸易、关心着财富的矮人崇敬。维古丹有时会被呼作 欺诈者the Trickster(不过崇拜他的矮人不会这样)和 大笑的矮人the Laughing Dwarf(不过矮人绝不会使用这样一个词)。
Vergadain (VUR-guh-dane), the Master Merchant, is the patron of dwarven merchants and most nonevil dwarven thieves. A schemer and a rogue, Vergadain is venerated by dwarves of any neutral alignment engaged in commerce and concerned with wealth. Vergadain is sometimes called the Trickster, though not by dwarves who worship him, and the Laughing Dwarf, though a dwarf would never use such a term.

  在很久以前,维古丹在取得了 短小之父the Short Father 贝斯Bes(一位 穆尔霍兰德神系the Mulhorandi pantheon 弱等神力)基于 诸国度the Realms 的面相。虽然贝斯的教派在很久以前已陷入默默无闻的境地,但在 斯库德城Skuld 有些许的人类商人仍在呼唤维古丹作为穆尔霍兰德气运与机遇之神的面相。
Long ago Vergadain assumed the Realms-based aspect of Bes, the Short Father, a lesser power of the Mulhorandi pantheon. While Bes's cult has long since sunk into obscurity, a few human merchants in the city of Skuld still call on Vergadain's aspect as the Mulhorandi god of luck and chance.

  维古丹与 摩丁萨曼诸神the Morndinsamman 大部分成员相处融洽,并与 杜格马睿·明罩Dugmaren Brightmantle 的缔造了非常亲密的关系,商业大师甚至与 贪欲宗师Great Master of Greed 阿巴索Abbathor 也维持着不稳定的休战关系。维古丹与大量其余凡人和神力进行着交易,也因此,他与各式各样的存在建立了牢固的关系,远超矮人神系其祂相对孤立的成员。在他作为贝斯的面相中,维古丹已与 奈芙蒂斯Nephthys 缔造了一种稳固的关系,不过她可很不欢迎他那些非邪恶盗贼和欺诈者光临。
Vergadain is on good terms with most members of the Morndinsamman, having forged a particularly close relationship with Dugmaren Brightmantle, and the Master Merchant even maintains an uneasy truce with Abbathor, the Great Master of Greed. Vergadain trades with a great number of other mortals and powers, and as a result, he has forged solid relationships with a wide range of beings, far more than the other, relatively insular, members of the dwarven pantheon. In his aspect as Bes, Vergadain has forged a strong relationship with Nephthys, though she frowns heavily on his patronage of nonevil thieves and trickery.

  维古丹的家园位面 外域the Outlands,但他很少花时间呆在那。相反,他不住地徘徊在外太空和可以找到他的诸世界中。他专注于不管在何处的人类、巨人、亚人和类人以通过自己的诡诈来蒙骗他们的财产,而矮人们欣赏他的机灵和大胆——以及借此获取的利润。维古丹喜欢在绝望的矮人定居点中,带着他们正好缺乏的独特、罕见或难以找到的物品或物质出现。若矮人们并未处于可怕的困境,维古丹授予的的宝藏将会是隐藏的,而其位置的线索通常藏在一首歌或韵诗的词中。
Vergadain's home plane is that of the Outlands, but he seems to spend little time there. Instead, he restlessly roams wildspace and the worlds that can be found in it. He concentrates his efforts wherever there are humans, giants, demihumans, and humanoids to be bilked of their belongings by his tricks, and dwarves to appreciate his cleverness and daring-and to profit by it. Vergadain delights in showing up at desperate dwarven settlements with exactly the unique, rare, or hard-to-find object or substances they are lacking. If the dwarves are not in dire straits, the treasure granted by Vergadain is hidden, and clues to its location are often hidden in the lyrics of a song or rhyme.

  维古丹能评估任何宝藏的材料、历史和文化价值,并知晓某位客户愿意为它支付的最高价格。他为自己在 烈酒厅Strongale Hall 中宏伟的艺术品与珠宝收藏而心感愉悦。商业大师有着出色的歌喉,并且是位伪装和模仿的大师。据说他也是位伟大的诗人,他会把大宝藏位置的线索隐藏在一首韵文或韵诗中给他的崇拜者。维古丹比其祂矮人神祇——以及心智健全的活矮人——都笑得更多!实际上,他眼中被看见闪烁着神秘的光芒的情况,比他向这个世界展现他的微笑更为频繁。维古丹喜欢并擅长骗术游戏(甚至是简单的酒馆把戏),他欣赏那些胜过他的人,而不会去折磨或试图报复他们。他总是在试图寻找新技术,在他发现一位新骗术艺术家时,他经常会观察并跟随一段时间来看看他能做什么。维古丹的大部分冒险与他在人类、亚人和巨人身上、为赢得他们的每一点财产进行的精心骗术游戏有关。他不会使用任何类型的、超过无害的花招的手段来达成他的目标,他永远猜疑着潜在敌手会试图欺骗他作为回敬。
Vergadain can appraise the exact material, historical, and cultural value of any treasure, and he knows the maximum price a customer is willing to pay. He delights in his magnificent collection of art objects and jewelry in Strongale Hall. The Master Merchant has a great singing voice and is a master of disguise and mimicry. He is said to be a great poet as well, and he dispenses clues to his worshipers, hidden in a verse or rhyme, to the locations of great treasures. Vergadain smiles more than any other dwarven deity-or sane living dwarf! His eyes are actually seen to twinkle enigmatically more often than he shows his smile to the world. Vergadain delights in and excels at con games, even simple tavern-tricks, and admires someone who bests him rather than punishing them or trying to get even. He is always looking for new techniques, and when he detects a con artist, he often watches and follow for a time to see what he can. Most of Vergadain's adventures concern the elaborate con games he has played on many humans, demihumans, humanoids, and giants in order to win their every belonging of worth. He is not above using any sort of harmless trick to accomplish his ends, and he is eternally suspicious of potential adversaries who might try to trick him in return.

维古丹的化身Vergadain's Avatar

  (盗贼Thief 33,野蛮人Bard 28,游侠Ranger 20,牧师Cleric 18)

  维古丹神临为一位高挑的矮人,身着棕色和黄色的商人服装,其上经常破烂褴褛或沾满飞尘。在这些衣服下面,他穿着铠甲并经常携带着装在袋子里的乐器、伪装物、和财富(例如宝石)。他通过把毒蛇和类似生物塞进里面,来保护他装着贵重财物的口袋。他的鞋袜里藏着武器(如小刀或勒杀绳),或是有暗格(例如空心高跟鞋),或是两者都有。他偏好来自以下领域和学派的法术,领域:共通、魅惑、创造、预言、守卫、数字、旅者、结界和气象;学派:防护、预言、附魔/魅惑、以及幻术/幻象,不过他能施展来自任何领域或学派的法术。
Vergadain appears as a tall dwarf clad in brown and yellow merchant's clothing, which is often tattered or dusty. Underneath these garments, he wears armor and often carries musical instruments, disguises, and treasure (such as gems) in sacks. He guards these sacks by thrusting poisonous snakes and similar creatures into them with his valued belongings. His footwear contains concealed weapons (such as knives or garrotes), or hiding places (such as hollow heels), or both. He favors spells from the spheres of all, charm, creation, divination, guardian, numbers, travelers, wards, and weather and from the schools of abjuration, divination, enchantment/charm, and illusion/phantasm, although he can cast spells from any sphere or school.

特殊攻击/防御Special Att/Def:

  维古丹只能被+2或更好的魔法武器击中。他挥舞着一柄名为 探金者Goldseeker 的+4阔剑,当被握住的时候,它能侦测到其人20呎内的钱币宝藏。它的外观普通、看上去经常被使用,并能以心灵感应传达宝藏的准确位置和大致规模。这件武器可以为任何人使用,但维古丹非常依恋它,会试图从任何从他那夺走它的手中夺回它。维古丹穿着一套隐匿的金质 +5链甲
Vergadain can be struck only by +2 or better magical weapons. He wields a broad sword +4 named Goldseeker that detects monetary treasure within 20 feet of his person when grasped. It has a common, well-used appearance and communicates the precise location and rough size of treasures telepathically. The weapon can be used by anyone, but Vergadain is very attached to it and seeks to regain it from anyone who takes it from him. Vergadain wears a concealed suit of golden chain mail +5.

  商业之王也有一条 放大项链necklace of enlargement,允许任何佩戴者能随意呈现为1~15呎内任意身高。维古丹能说出这条项链的位置在哪——哪怕它位于几个偏远的位面(他帮助为它附魔,而它与他连接),而且当他位于这条项链1英里内时,他能推翻任何佩戴着它的其他生物(对它)的控制。这条项链有着不起眼外观,显然是无界限的异能,并且能改变尺寸来适应佩带者。它不能提供或扮演任何其它魔法效果,也不能改变佩戴者的外观或任何衣服或装备的尺寸。维古丹经常把偷这条项链的盗贼降低到只有1呎高,瞬间使这位盗贼被卷入自己的衣服中,甚至让这位倒霉的盗匪被自己掉落的装备(匕首、腰带、靴子等等)钉死。在那时,维古丹会立即迫使这位盗贼变成15呎高,通过这样使其胀破穿的衣服(并造成轻微的伤害),从而吸引这位神明和其他任何人注意到其的准确位置,并使这位盗贼头部与任何普通天花板猛撞(1d2点伤害并晕眩1d2轮)。若盗贼足够聪明地不戴上项链或是让它接触自己任何一处裸露的皮肤,那么只有项链会变大缩小。当然,这仍然是引人注目的并且对于想用衣服掩盖会是个麻烦,而维古丹会通过项链来追踪盗贼,直到对方选择摆脱它。
The Merchant King also has a necklace of enlargement that allows any wearer to assume any height at will between 1 foot and 15 feet. Vergadain can tell where this necklace is, even several planes distant (he helped enchant it, and it is linked to him), and he can override the control of any other being wearing it when he is within a mile of the necklace. The necklace is of nondescript appearance, apparently limitless powers, and changes size to fit the wearer. It cannot power or enact any other magical effect, nor does it alter the wearer's appearance, or the size of any clothing or gear. Vergadain usually shrinks any thief who steals the necklace to 1 foot in height, which instantly entangles the rogue in his or her clothing or even pin the unlucky robber under his or her own falling equipment (dagger, belt, boots, etc.). At that point, Vergadain instantly forces the thief to 15 feet in height, ruining the clothing as she or he shoots up through it (and inflicting minor damage), attracting the god's and everyone else's attention to his or her exact location, and braining the battered thief (1d2 points of damage and 1d2 rounds stunned) on any normal ceiling present. If a thief is smart enough not to wear the necklace or allow it to touch his or her bare skin anywhere, only the necklace changes size. This is still attention-getting and harmful to any clothing concealing it, of course, and Vergadain can track the thief by the necklace until the thief gets rid of it.

  随意使用,维古丹能使用 进阶隐形improved invisibility。每日1次,他能使用 假象术mislead。随意使用,他也能 识破隐形生物see invisible creatures,但只有在他们拥有生命(并非死者或不死)并且处于40呎内时。随意使用,维古丹能使用 蛛行术spider climb。每日9次,随意使用,他能在20呎半径或更小的区域内创造 沉默术silence,并能随意改变区域的大小。这样的沉默将维持效果1回合(或者更短,若被这尊化身解消;它能抵御所有凡物的 驱散魔法dispel magic 法术或能力)。
Vergadain can use improved invisibility at will. He can mislead once a day. He can also see invisible creatures at will, but only if they are living (not dead or undead) and within 40 feet. Vergadain can spider climb at will. Nine times a day, he can, at will, create silence in a 20-foot-radius or smaller area, altering the size of the area at will. Such silence remains in effect for 1 turn (or less if dispelled by the avatar; it resist all mortal dispel magic spells and abilities).

其祂显现Other Manifestations

  维古丹喜欢以化身形态神临诸国度。他极少显现,并且会选择以下4种中的一种:(1)维古丹可能会神临为一位不可见的矮人歌者或音乐家,他的歌声、鼓声或笛声将引领迷失的矮人到避难所、安全之地、一条疏散通道或是宝藏处。(2)他也可以更巧妙地显现,为自己的目的而夺取某位歌者、先知或贤者的控制权。那个人将表达、说出或唱出留下大概哪里有大宝藏的线索或方向的词句。有时,维古丹会通过活化一枚金币(他的徽记)环绕持有者的头部来表现他的存在;当该生物并非一位矮人而他只想要矮人听到这条消息时,他尤其会这样做。(3)维古丹也可以神临为一枚被活化、沿着地板或地面不停滚动的金币。这枚硬币可以向上滚,甚至是跳上台阶,来领着生物前往宝藏;这枚钱币只会在标志着某处隐藏地点或前进路线(举个例子来说,一面松动的、通向一条隧道的石板)的地方倒下。它并不会给予针对守卫的怪兽或陷阱的警告。(4)最后,在矮人最需要的时候(例如,要逃离某面悬崖或城堡的城墙,或拯救一位坠落的同伴时),他能神临为一条突如其来伸出援手的长绳。这条绳子随后将消失。
Vergadain likes to appear in avatar form in the Realms. He manifests only rarely, and in one of four ways:(1) Vergadain may appear as an unseen dwarven singer or musician, whose song, drumming, or piping leads lost dwarves to refuge, safety, an escape route, or treasure. (2) He may appear more subtly, seizing control of a singer, prophet, or sage for his own purposes. That person utters, speaks, or sings words to leave clues or directions to the where abouts of great treasure. At times, Vergadain signals his presence by animating a gold piece, his symbol, to orbit the head of the possessed being; he does this particularly when the being is not a dwarf, and he wants only dwarves to notice the message. (3) Vergadain can appear as an animated, endlessly rolling gold coin that travels along the floor or ground. The coin can travel uphill, or even bound up steps, to lead beings to treasure; the coin settles only to mark a hiding place or the route onward (a loose flagstone leading to a tunnel, for instance). It gives no warning of guardian monsters or traps. (4) Finally, he can appear as a long rope that comes to hand unexpectedly when a dwarf needs it most (for example, to escape down a cliff or castle wall, or to rescue a fallen companion). The rope later vanishes.

  维古丹被以下存在侍奉着:秘法商人、赤铜龙、水晶龙、幽魂龙、金色的猫、女首斯芬克斯、隼天狗、小矮妖、信使巨蛇messenger snake、以及plumach。他通过以下的意外发现来展现他的眷顾:金骰子、珠宝、贵金属(尤其是黄金)、罕见的香料、其它珍贵的贸易品、在交易期间收到恰好9枚钱币(任意材质)。商业之王通过以下来显示他的不悦:一系列霉运、一条被放在麻袋里的蛇(一种维古丹自己最狡猾诈骗把戏的象征)、锁头伏虫lock lurker 和 好运吞食者luck eater 的存在、黄铁矿pyrite(也被称作愚人金)的发现、以及在商业交易期间收到恰好5枚钱币(任意材质)。
Vergadain is served by arcane, aurumvorae, copper dragons, crystal dragons, ghost dragons, gold-colored cats, gynosphinxes, kenku, leprechauns, messenger snakes, and plumachs. He demonstrates his favor through the unexpected discovery of gold dice, jewels, precious metals (particularly gold), rare spices, other prized trade goods, and the receiving of exactly nine coins (of any mintage) during a business transaction. The Merchant King indicates his displeasure through a run of bad luck, a snake left in a sack (a symbol of Vergadain's own wiliest con tricks), the presence of lock lurkers and luck eaters, the discovery of pyrite (also known as fool's gold), and the receiving of exactly five coins (of any mintage) during a business transaction.

  维古丹的所有牧师(包括牧师/盗贼,一种允许维古丹矮人祭司的兼职组合)和专属祭司得到 宗教知识religion(矮人dwarven)和 阅读/书写reading/writing(矮人语符文Dethek runes)作为非武器熟练奖励。维古丹的牧师(以及牧师/盗贼)在7级前不能驱散不死,但他们在针对不死生物的所有攻击和伤害骰+2。在第7级和更高,牧师(包括兼职牧师)能如其他牧师那样驱散不死,但牧师等级比当前等级-4。这些修正只适用于牧师职业,而不适用于护教军或专属祭司。直到 动荡之年Time of Troubles 前,维古丹的所有祭司都是男性。但在那之后,已有女性已开始加入了神职人员。
All clerics (including cleric/thieves, a multiclassed combination allowed to dwarven priests of Vergadain) and specialty priests of Vergadain receive religion (dwarven) and reading/writing (Dethek runes) as bonus nonweapon proficiencies. Clerics of Vergadain (as well as cleric/thieves) cannot turn undead before 7th level, but they always strike at +2 on all attack and damage rolls against undead creatures. At 7th level and above, clerics (including multiclassed clerics) can turn undead as other clerics do, but as a cleric of four levels less than their current level. These modifications apply only to the cleric class. Vergadain's clergy were all male before the Time of Troubles. Since then, females have begun entering the clergy.

  维古丹的追随者(尤其是在矮人社会之外)常被视作可疑人物,而对商业之王信徒的看法,混合了对他们的商业成功的尊敬和嫉妒,与对他们的原则与做法的不信任。因此,很少有矮人愿意承认维古丹是他们的神祇。若商业大师的追随者向其他人否认维古丹是自己的真神,只要进行了适当的献祭,这位神明并不会被冒犯到。祭司和追随者们被允许偶尔隐藏自己的信仰,因为很少有对教派有认知的人会很乐于与他们交易和做生意。
Followers of Vergadain are usually seen as suspicious characters, particularly outside dwarven society, and the Merchant King's faithful are viewed with a mixture of respect and envy for their commercial success and distrust of their principles and practices. Thus, few dwarves willingly admit that Vergadain is their deity. If a follower of the Master Merchant denies to others that Vergadain is that person's true deity, the god is not offended, so long as the proper sacrifices are made. Priests and followers are allowed to hide their reverence on occasion, since few people knowledgeable about this cult are very happy at conducing transactions and deals with them.

  维古丹的神殿是些没有窗户的房间,要么坐落在地下建筑物中,要么位于地表的类堡垒建筑中,邻近坚固的保管库。它们充满了无数的钱币、珠宝和其它宝藏,总价值足以与大部分巨龙的储藏匹敌,并有着适当的魔法和非魔法陷阱加以守卫。中心礼拜堂总是以充作祭坛的庞大的石坩埚占主导。斜对角足有5呎的庞大钱币悬挂在每座祭坛上方。这些钱币是守卫的 花钱anator,在未经允许者从祭坛(维古丹的信徒在这放置祭品)拿走东西时,将发射 闪电束lightning bolt魔法飞弹magic missile。在从大坩埚移走一件物品之前,中立或混乱中立的生物可以低语这枚花钱的密码,来避免这种魔法之怒。请注意,每枚花钱的密码通常只有神殿的最资深祭司和维古丹本身才知晓,而知晓这些旧密码的人可以迅速修改密码。
Temples of Vergadain are windowless chambers located either in underground complexes or on the surface in fortresslike, near impregnable vaults. They are filled with countless coins, jewels, and other treasures, whose collective value usually rivals that of most dragon's hoards, with appropriate magical and nonmagical traps to guard them. The central chapel is always dominated by huge stone cauldrons that serve as altars. Huge gold coins, fully 5 feet across, hang above each altar. These coins are guardian anators that emit lightning bolts and magic missiles at unauthorized beings who take things from an altar (where the offerings of Vergadain's faithful are placed). A being of neutral or chaotic neutral alignment can avoid this magical wrath by whispering the anator's password prior to removing an item from the cauldron. Note that the password to each anator is usually known only to the seniormost priest of the temple and to Vergadain himself, and such passwords can be quickly changed by those knowing the old password.
[译注:anator——灵感来源应该是“花钱”中那些串起来挂着辟邪之类的镇宅钱、开炉、吉语钱等等。]

  维古丹的初修士们名为 穷困者the Impoverished。商业之王的正式祭司名为 镀金商人Gilded Merchants。依升序,维古丹教派Vergadainan 的祭司们使用的头衔如下:合金徒Alloyn、铜徒Copprak、银徒Argentic、电镀者Electrol、金龙人Aurak、以及 至高金龙人High Aurak。高阶长老High Old Ones 有独特的个人头衔,但被统称为 商业王子Merchant Princes。专属祭司名为 贸易者hurndor,这是一个矮人语词汇,可以粗略地翻译为“ 那些买卖的人those who trade ”。维古丹的神职人员包括金矮人(60%)、盾矮人(39%)、灰矮人(1%)、以及一撮丛林矮人。维古丹的神职人员几乎在专属祭司(37%)、牧师(33%)和盗贼(30%)之间均分。维古丹的祭司主要为男性(93%)。
Novices of Vergadain are known as the Impoverished. Full priests of the Merchant King are known as Gilded Merchants. In ascending order of rank, the titles used by Vergadainan priests are Alloyn, Copprak, Argentic, Electrol, Aurak, and High Aurak. High Old Ones have unique individual titles but are collectively known as Merchant Princes. Specialty priests are known as hurndor, a dwarvish word that can be loosely translated as those who trade. The clergy of Vergadain includes gold dwarves (60%), shield dwarves (39%), gray dwarves (1%), and a handful of jungle dwarves. Vergadain's clergy is nearly evenly divided between Specialty Priests(37%), clerics (33%), and thieves (30%). The majority of Vergadain's priests are male (93%).

教义Dogma:

  真正被庇佑的人是那些进取心与热忱带来财富与好运的人。矮人们很适合通过双手和心灵的努力来获得财富;用这两种方法来撬开别人的财富吧。要努力工作,变得聪明,寻找最后的交易,商业之王将用金子给你淋浴。尽情享受生活吧;储存、什一奉献、消费你的财富,并由此鼓励更多的贸易。以尊重来对待他人,但要逃避不属于你的责任来尝试对你比对他们更有利的交易——不试一试便是将维古丹给予你的礼物虚掷。
The truly blessed are those whose enterprise and zeal brings both wealth and good luck. Dwarves are well suited to earn their fortunes by the effort of both their hands and their minds; use both to pry wealth out of others. Work hard, be clever, seek the best bargain, and the Merchant King will shower you with gold. Live life to its fullest; save, tithe, and spend your riches and thus encourage more trade. Treat others with respect, but shirk not your responsibilty to try to strike a deal better for you than for them-to not try would be to leave the gifts that Vergadain gives you idle.

日常活动Day-to-Day Activities:

  维古丹的祭司投身于促进矮人商人与其他种族(尤其是人类)贸易的成功,不过这样做总是为了矮人的利益。祭职者被实现个人的富裕并以出众的方式维护商业之王的神殿。他们的橘色是增进普通矮人的影响力和繁荣,并由此帮助矮人们精进他们的工艺、武器精通和发明技能。在维古丹的祭坛上的黄金将被精明地花费或交易,以支持矮人商人。维古丹的神职人员在可能的情况下保释矮人商人偿清债务,用于贿赂来帮助矮人与费伦Faerûn大陆其余地区和种族的贸易和商业活动,等等等等。通过这些手段,维古丹的祭司们希望能增加矮人在诸国度的重要性,而他们经常与其祂矮人神明的祭司(尤其是 杜马松Dumathoin,有时甚至是阿巴索)来实现这点。
Vergadain's priests are dedicated to furthering the success of dwarven merchant commerce with other races, especially humans, but always to the benefit of dwarves. The priesthood is expected to be personally wealthy and to maintain the Merchant King's temples in excellent style. Their role is to increase general dwarven influence and prosperity and thus help the dwarves to further their craftwork, weapons-mastery, and inventions. Gold donated on Vergadain's altars is spent or traded shrewdly, to support dwarven merchants. Vergadain's clergy use it to bail dwarven merchants out of debt where possible, place bribes to help dwarven trade and commerce with other lands and races of Faerûn, and so on. Through these means the priests of Vergadain hope to increase dwarven importance in the Realms, and they often work with priests of the other dwarven gods (particularly Dumathoin and sometimes even Abbathor) to do so.

圣日/重要仪式Holy Days/Important Ceremonies:

  维古丹的祭司们不知疲倦地工作来支持和促进费伦大陆各地的矮人商人和民间手艺人。每当他们提供援助或处理任何类型的物质财富时,他们会低喃维古丹之名致敬。大部分维古丹的信徒也会这样做,这构成了维古丹日常礼拜的大部分。据说,每当他的名讳被念出时,维古丹能看见10呎内任何生物的心灵。有时他会以一道幻象或一道预防性的显现的方式,来向一位矮人警告背叛。
Priests of Vergadain work tirelessly to support and promote dwarven merchants and craftsfolk throughout Faerûn. Whenever they render aid or handle material wealth of any sort, they mutter Vergadain's name in homage. Most of Vergadain's faithful also do so, and this makes up the bulk of Vergadain's daily worship. It is said that Vergadain can see into the mind of any creature within 10 feet wherever his name is uttered. He sometimes warns a dwarf of treachery by means of a vision or a preventative manifestation.

  维古丹教派信仰的圣日对信徒而言名为 硬币节coin festivals,而那些将购买他们的商品的、好挖苦的人则称之为 买卖会trade moots ——这是因为维古丹的追随者在这样的典礼前会尽可能多地挣些钱币——因此在最后一分钟还在讨价还价也是有可能的——以便通过炫耀地展示自己的个人财富和更多的什一奉献来赢取他们的地位。硬币节Coin Festivals在满月前后的日子、在 绿草节Greengrass、以及任何被一位商业王子宣布为神圣的日子举行。每月1次向维古丹进行的黄金献祭,在这样的硬币节上通过将它们放置在一处献给商业女王来进行。
Holy days of the Vergadainan faith are known as coin festivals to the faithful and as trade moots to those cynics who would purchase their wares, for Vergadain's followers typically seek to earn as much coin as they can before such ceremonies-and thus last-minute bargains are to be had-so as to earn status among their fellows by garish displays of personal wealth and large tithes. Coin Festivals are held on the days before and after a full moon, on Greengrass, and any day proclaimed holy by a Merchant Prince. Offerings of gold are made to Vergadain once a month at such coin festivals by placing them on an altar dedicated to the Merchant King.

  崇拜这位神明的适当仪式由集会组成,这些集会在环绕着火炬、火盆、或其它火焰的无窗房间或地下环境进行。这种仪式要求缓慢的舞蹈、在火焰周围庄严地移动、佩戴并炫耀黄金和其它贵重物品。在舞蹈持续时,每位崇拜这位神明的矮人都要将至少一枚金币丢到火焰中。火焰将完全焚尽放置在其中的贵重物品,有时在焚尽的过程中会露出地图、线索、卷轴、毒素或其它这位神明送来的东西。已知有出现过武器但极其罕见。也许维古丹最常送来的是一把复制钥匙,用于打开阻碍他们获取其中财产的保险箱、金库或是栅栏,这些财产要么本来便属于他们,或者是被以欺骗的手段从他们手里偷走了一段时间。
The proper rituals of worship to the god consist of meeting in windowless rooms or underground, around torches, braziers, or other flames. The rituals call for dancing in slow, stately shiftings around the flame, wearing and displaying gold and other objects of worth. Every dwarf who worships the god throws at least one gold piece into the flame as the dance continues. The flame consumes valuables placed in it utterly, sometimes dying away to reveal a map, clue, scroll, potion, or other sending of the god. These sendings are rare, and although helpful, they are rarely powerful. The appearance of a weapon is known but extremely rare. Perhaps the most common sending of Vergadain is a duplicate key to a strongbox, vault, or barrier that prevents dwarves from reaching wealth rightfully belonging to them, or stolen by cheating them over a period of time.

  在火焰向上爆发、象征着这位神明的关注与谢意时,舞蹈结束。祭司们点亮蜡烛或咒唤来光亮,随后洽谈交易(通常是当前会促进矮人财富的项目)。从一位矮人到另一位的、必需进行的费用、贿赂、援助或其它资金转移接着发生,通常是从祭司转移到被他们召来进行礼拜的信徒身上。最后,显贵的祭司让手穿过缓慢衰弱的火焰。在那时,任何在场的矮人都会以告别的姿势亲吻一枚金币,随后离开。
The dance ends when the flame flares upward, signifying the god's attention and thanks. The priests light candles or conjure light, and then discuss business (usually current projects to further dwarven wealth). Transfers of necessary fees, bribes, aid, or other funds from one dwarf to another occurs next, usually from priests to the faithful they have called to worship. Finally, the ranking priest passes his hand through the flame, which slowly diminishes. At this time, any dwarf present kisses a gold coin as a gesture of farewell, and then departs.

主要崇拜中心Major Centers of Worship:

  阿芬德阿尔托克赫恩登Aefindar Ultokhurnden,即 金运贸易大会the Trademoot of Golden Fortune,是座堡垒般的大教堂,位于 大裂谷the Great Rift 边缘的矮人城市 大地之心Eartheart 的中心。贸易大会的外表面花岗岩岩墙被镀金并定期抛光,使神殿被照耀地如此明亮,以至于在太阳我i鳄鱼最高点时几乎很难看着它。这座商业之王神殿的宏伟厅堂充当着它的中心交易市场,它的上层房间充当着贸易和商业部门的屋子。贸易大会的下层储放着这座城市以及三座维古丹的宏伟教堂的大部分财富。卡埃尔之子son of Cael、兰布林之血脉blood of Lambryn、商业王子Merchant Prince、“高贵者”葛伦·金拇指Royal Ghaern Goldthumb 主持着这处繁忙的商业中心。在任何时候这座神殿建筑物中都有超过200位牧师居住,也是数百位矮人商人的大本营,他们的商队网络跨越费伦大陆大部。若传言可信,迷宫般的下层中除了数不清的陷阱,还有三条成年或壮年的巨龙担任着贸易大会的宝藏金库。
Aefindar Ultokhurnden, the Trademoot of Golden Fortune, is a fortresslike cathedral at the center of the dwarven city of Eartheart on the rim of the Great Rift. The exterior granite walls of the Trademoot are plated in gold and polished regularly, making the temple shine so bright that it is almost difficult to look at when the sun is at its highest. The great hall of the Merchant King's temple serves the city as its central market place, and its upper chambers houses the ministry of trade and commerce. The lower levels of the Trademoot house much of the city's wealth as well as three grand chapels of Vergadain. This center of bustling commerce is presided over by Merchant Prince Royal Ghaern Goldthumb, son of Cael, blood of Lambryn. The temple houses well over two hundred priests at any time, and is the home base of hundreds of dwarven merchants whose caravan networks span much of Faerûn. If rumors are to be believed, three adult or mature adult dragons serve as guardians of the Trademoot's treasure vaults, in addition to countless traps that riddle the lower levels.

从属组织Affiliated Orders:

  维古丹的黄金之手The Golden Hands of Vergadain 是支广泛散布的祭司与盗贼组织,分布在大部分有矮人生活和贸易的主要城市中和被矮人使用的主要贸易路线沿线。在一小部分重获的财物的交易中,黄金之手的成员会试图保护矮人商人的安全并与那些会欺骗 粗壮族裔the Stout Folk 的人打交道。在城市中,黄金之手的组织通常有着类似于盗贼公会的结构,雇佣了许多的游荡者。他们袭击那些被认为包含有以暴力或欺诈手段从矮人商人那里盗取了货物的、其他种族商人的货栈。沿着贸易路线,黄金之手很像主要由战斗牧师和专属祭司组成的游荡佣兵团。他们经常在寻找并摧毁威胁贸易路线的怪物或强盗,赎回被绑架的矮人商人,收回从矮人商队那被掠走的货物。
The Golden Hands of Vergadain is a widely scattered order of priests and thieves found in most major cities where dwarves live and trade, as well as along the major trading routes used by the dwarves. In exchange for a small percentage of any recovered wealth, members of the Golden Hands seek to secure the safety of dwarven merchants and deal with those who would cheat the Stout Folk. In cities, the Golden Hands organization is often structured like a thieves' guild, employing many rogues. They raid warehouses of merchants of other races believed to contain goods stolen from dwarven merchants by force or fraud. Along trade routes, the Golden Hands resemble roving mercenary companies composed largely of fighting clerics and specialty priests. They often seek out and destroy monsters or brigands threatening trade routes, ransom kidnapped dwarven merchants, and recover goods from plundered dwarven caravans.

祭司的祭服Priestly Vestments:

  维古丹的神职人员喜欢华丽的长袍,其上点缀的宝石并装饰以羽毛。一连串相连的金币被挂在肩膀和脖子上。虽然牧师的祭服使用的颜色各不相同,但在不被禁奢法令禁止的土地上金色和深紫色是首选。仪式铠甲包括华丽的链甲、一件镶嵌着宝石带着这位神明徽记的颈甲、以及一顶精心装饰过的头盔。自身祭司(5级或更高)被期望在他们的仪式铠甲上镀金以避免丢脸,对那些初级祭司们来说,这样做也是在教团中重要地位的一种标志。
Vergadain's clergy favor rich robes of obvious cost studded with gems and trimmed with furs. A string of linked gold coins is draped over the shoulders and around the neck. While the colors used for clerical vestments vary widely, gold and deep purple are preferred in lands where their use is not banned by sumptuary laws. Ceremonial armor includes ornate chain mail, a gem-studded gorget bearing the god's symbol, and an elaborately decorated helm. Senior priests (5th level and higher) are expected to have their ceremonial armor plated in gold to avoid disgrace, and it is a mark of great status within the church for junior priests to do so as well.

  该信仰的圣徽是一枚圆金币。这样的钱币必须是通过为物贸支付而获取到的,而不能是专为这种目的而铸造的。每当另一枚类似价值的金币吸引住这位祭司的眼睛时(这通常一个月至少发生1次),这位祭司将被期望以新钱币交换当前的圣徽,新钱币将随后变成新的圣徽。
The holy symbol of the faith is a round gold coin. Such coins must be acquired in payment for trade goods and cannot be minted specifically for this purpose. Whenever another gold coin of similar value catches the priest's eye, which usually happens least once a month, the priest is expected to exchange the current holy symbol for the new coin, which then becomes the new holy symbol.

冒险装束Adventuring Garb:

  维古丹的神职人员喜欢在常服下穿着皮甲。这提供了某次程度的防护措施,但不会引起贸易伙伴的反感——因为那意味着在其他商队中镀金商人的安全存在问题。在危险情况下,完活动的神职成员偏爱链甲,以及带着这位神明徽记的一顶头盔和一领颈甲,将这视为一种防护力与机动性需求之间的必要妥协。商业之王的大部分祭司偏爱容易隐藏的小型武器,例如匕首、小刀和短剑。
Vergadain's clergy favor leather armor underneath their normal clothing. This provides some measure of protection yet is unlikely to give offense to trading partners by implying that the Gilded Merchant's safety is in question in the other's company. In dangerous situations, members of Vergadain's clergy favor chain mail, with a helm and a gorget bearing the god's symbol, seeing it as a necessary compromise between the need for both protection and maneuverability. Most priests of the Merchant King favor small weapons that are easily concealed, such as daggers, knives, and short swords.

侦测仇敌Detect Enemies

  (祭司Pr 2;预言Divination)

  领域Sphere:预言Divination
  距离Range:0
  成分Components:言语V,材料M
  持续时间Duration:1 回合turn
  施法时间Casting Time:1轮round
  影响区域Area of Effect:60 呎半径-foot radius
  豁免检定Saving Throw:无None

  这道法术将侦测到60呎内任何对施法者怀有直接敌意的生物。这种生物可以是隐形、灵化、星界化、不同相out of phase、隐藏、伪装、或处于普通视觉plain sight中。这位祭司在面对范围内有敌意的个体时,将感觉到一种压迫感。这些祭司不必转身面对每个人,但这祭司将无误地识别出、他转身面对所看见的这样的敌对生物。不可见地敌人将被充分地侦测到而取消了突袭轮,而对这位祭司进行背刺的被定位的盗贼,其相关的技能得分将减半(通常是阴影躲藏或无声移动)。这位祭司也有5%/每级的可能性侦测到对自己的长期敌意,即便攻击并不迫在眉睫。
This spell detects the presence and direction of any creature within a 60-foot radius that has immediately hostile intentions toward the caster. The creature or creatures can be invisible, ethereal, astral, out of phase, hidden, disguised, or in plain sight. The priest feels a compulsion to face each individual enemy in range. The priest need not turn to face each, but she or he unerringly recognizes as hostile any such creature that the priest sees as she or he turns to face it. Unseen enemies are sufficiently detected to negate surprise attack rounds, and a thief positioning for a backstab against the priest has his or her relevant skill score halved (usually hide in shadows or move silently). The caster also has a 5% chance per level to detect longer-term hostility toward himself or herself, even if no direct attack is imminent.

  这道法术的材料成分是这位祭司的圣徽,圣徽不需要以明显的方式展示,让这位祭司能够在一个合理的时机施展这道法术而不会因此警告了对手。
The material component of this spell is the priest's holy symbol, which need not be displayed in an obvious fashion, allowing the priest a reasonable chance to cast this spell without alerting opponents.

商人的五官幻觉Merchant's Glamer

  (祭司Pr 2;幻术/幻象Illusion/Phantasm)

  领域Sphere:魅惑Charm
  距离Range:10 呎feet
  成分Components:言语V,姿势S,材料M
  持续时间Duration:特殊Special
  施法时间Casting Time:5
  影响区域Area of Effect:1 立方呎/级One cubic foot/level
  豁免检定Saving Throw:无None

  受这道法术影响的商品看上去似乎比它们实际的更出色得多。老旧、生锈的武器看上去好像新的一样,质量普通的物品看上去可以很好,而一把普普通通的剑看上去好像是一件精致武器一般。对所有目的而言,除非被以专门洞察幻术的魔法(例如 侦测幻术detect illusion真知术true seeing)检测,否则这件被迷惑的物品都是真实的。
Material goods affected by this spell appear to be much finer than they actually are. Old, rusty weapons can be made to look new, goods of ordinary quality can be to appear fine, and a common sword can be made to appear as a weapon of quality. For all purposes, the ensorcelled goods appear to be genuine, unless tested with magics that specifically penetrate illusions, such detect illusion and true seeing.

  这道法术将持续最多24小时,或直到这件物品被售出,在那时这道咒文将瓦解。在这道魔法开始瓦解后的1回合/每施法者等级后,这件物品的真实质量将暴露出来。
The spell lasts up to 24 hours, or until the goods are sold, at which time the dweomer unravels. The actual quality of the goods is revealed after a time equal to 1 turn per caster level after the magic starts to fall apart.

  维古丹的祭司们一般不会将受到这道法术影响的物品卖给其他矮人。如果遇到了一位发怒的顾客,他们通常会声称这位顾客在购买后调换了商品(并且透露自己认识能施展 侦测谎言detect lie 的矮人祭司),或是声称他们的商品是“原样”售出的,而顾客没有挑选好货可不是卖家的问题。
Priests of Vergadain do not generally sell goods affected by this spell to other dwarves. If confronted by an irate customer, their usual tactic is either to claim that the customer switched the goods after purchase (and intimate that they have connections with dwarven priests able to use detect lie) or to claim that their goods are sold "as is" and the inability of the customer to pick quality goods is not their problem.

  这道法术的材料成分是这位祭司的圣徽和一撮羊毛。
The material components are the priest's holy symbol and a tuft of wool.

4th Level

石头圈套Stone Trap

  (祭司Pr 4;转化Alteration)

  领域Sphere:守卫Guardian
  距离Range:10 码/级yards/level
  成分Components:言语V,姿势S,材料M
  持续时间Duration:永久直至被释放Permanent until discharged
  施法时间Casting Time:1 回合turn
  影响区域Area of Effect:1 立方呎/级1 cubic foot/level
  豁免检定Saving Throw:特殊Special

  这道法术将使石头表现的隐形并移动它到施法者所选择的半空(范围内的)位置。它将漂浮在原地(有时会持续数年),直到法术由施法者的意志或死亡所释放。释放可以通过一个词汇或短语(通常是在最初的施法中说出的一句短语)的发出来完成。这道法术也可以录入像法师法术 魔嘴magic mouth 那样的特定条件(换句话说,像是“当这扇门上的这把锁被打破或撬开时”等等)。
This spell renders stone invisible and moves it to a mid-air location (within range) chosen by the caster. It levitates in place, sometimes for years, until the spell is released either by will of the caster or by the caster's death. Release can be accomplished by the utterance of a word or phrase (often a phrase spoken in the original spellcasting). The spell might also be keyed to specific conditions like the 1st-level wizard spell magic mouth (in other words,"when the lock on the door is broken or picked" and so on).

  当 石头陷阱 被触发时,这块石头将在下落中变得可见。这道法术经常被作为陷阱,用在拱门(包括城堡和掘穴入口)、金库房门、王座、浴缸、床或其它战略区域上方的大石块上。
When the stonetrap is triggered, the stone turns visible as it falls. This spell is often used to hold boulders as deadfalls above archways (including castle or delve entrances), vault doors, thrones, bathtubs, beds, or other strategic areas.

  该区域内的生物被允许一次对抗法术豁免检定。失败将受到完整伤害(每施法者等级2d4伤害)。成功的豁免检定将允许一次敏捷检定。成功则允许无损地逃脱;失败则遭受半数伤害。
Creatures in the area are allowed a saving throw vs. spell. Failure inflicts full damage (2d4 points of damage per level of the caster). A successful saving throw allows a Dexterity check. Success allows escape without damage; failure inflicts half damage.

  技艺娴熟的矮人经常会将光滑的石头制成假的石制天花板,并把它们升到头顶上方作为 石头陷阱真知术True seeing 将清晰地揭示有悬浮的石头,但若施法者没有处理它的准备充分的技能(使用的是被塑造过的石块或被切割过的装饰物如石像鬼头或拱顶拱),观众可能认不出任何所见的石头是陷阱之石。漂浮的石头会散发出微弱的魔法,但如果在塑造和随后的使用中使用过魔法的话,许多矮人掘穴都可能散发着魔法。多疑的盗贼可以以其正常发现陷阱技能几率的一半寻找陷阱,并成功的避免(也是通常的一半)使石头的坠落不会对这位盗贼造成伤害。
Skilled dwarves often fashion false stone ceilings of smooth-finished stones and raise them overhead to serve as stone traps. True seeing reveals the levitating stone clearly, but if the caster has prepared it with enough skill (using shaped stone blocks or carved ornaments such as gargoyle heads or vault arches), the viewer may not recognize the viewed stone as any sort of trap. The levitating stone does faintly radiate magic, but then many dwarven delves might radiate magic if spells have been used in their shaping or subsequent use. A suspicious thief can find the trap at half his or her normal find trap thieving skill chance, and successful removal (also at half the usual chance) can bring the stone down without harm to the thief.

  这道法术的材料成分是一颗粗沙、一滴水、一根来自任何生物的睫毛、以及一块卵石。
The material components of this spell are a speck of grit, a drop of water, an eyelash from any creature, and a pebble.
