The Dying Age
Malon, The Lucky
Malon, unlike the rest of the Aionic pantheon, is more a folk-hero than a god – his divinity and inclusion seems more to be a concession to public sentiment than any function of his temples and worshippers. Indeed, there are relatively few temples to Malon at all, and his religion has more in common with the sects and cults of the Dragon Empire than it does with the worship apparatus surrounding most of the other faiths.
If Malon is worshipped at all, it is at one of the many shrines and small statues set aside for him within the region; many homes boast a small idol graven in Malon’s image.
More common than worship are folktales surrounding Malon’s exploits. Given the sheer variety and number of adventures now ascribed to him, most scholars suspect that there wasn’t one Malon but many.
Malon’s priesthood is small and isolated only in those communities that already feature a temple dedicated to him. Attempts to spread the worship and expand the temple network have frequently ended in failure throughout the past few centuries; though the people certainly believe in Malon, as of yet there has been little done to incentivize the ossification and formalization of his worship.
