Vergadain, also known as The Laughing Dwarf by non-dwarves, was the neutral dwarven deity of luck, trickery, negotiation and wealth, sometimes considered an exarch of Moradin. While it seemed that Vergadain represented the dwarves' well-known dedication to the mercantile art of bargaining, those who knew better were aware that he had an aspect that seldom filled the more legal-minded dwarves with pride. As such, Vergadain also watched over those dwarves who used less-than-legal means to gain wealth. Regardless of how he was viewed, Vergadain delighted in the art of the deal, no matter what it was, so long as it turned a profit.
