Dazmig: The Red Dawn

It seems my submission to Grognardia's Petty Gods didn't make the cut.   I'm not too surprised, as the level of talent out in the OSR is pretty amazing.  However, I did enjoy coming up with this god, and so I've decided to share him here.  If he sounds familiar, it's because I posted about some of his followers earlier.

Dazmig was said to be a wandering warlord who burned with an unending anger before taking his place among the immortals.  Famous for his predawn attacks, he would raze sleepy cities to the ground before the sun fully crested the horizon.  Once he attained immortality, he claimed those who suffered from Unending Anger as his charges.   He appears as a spear wielding warrior in chain.  His symbol is woven into the armor with colored links as well as adorning the crest of his helm. 

Name: Dazmig The Red Dawn
Symbol: Red sun cresting over horizon with 5 sharp rays radiating outward
Alignment: Neutral
Movement: 120’ (30’)
Armor Class: -2
Hit Points (Hit Dice): 100 (22HD)
Attacks: 2 or special
Damage: 2d6+3 or special
Save: C22
Morale: 12
Hoard Class: IX, XIV

The Red Dawn fights as a level 22 fighter, and can also cast clerical spells as a level 10 cleric.  He also may enrage anyone who he chooses unless a Saving Throw vs Spells is made.  Should the target fail their saving throw they will suffer a -2 penalty to their armor class, saving throws, and attack rolls, and they will gain a +4 to all damage on all successful attacks.  The effect lasts for 24 hours.
