Temples are found within all Engineer Guildhalls with the largest in Zhufbar with priests favouring dark clothing with the symbol of Morgrim on the left breast. The cult is on friendly terms with those of the other Ancestor Gods, especially Grungni and Grimnir and are hostile towards enemies of the Dwarf race. [1a]
