The Night Wars
All Father, Warlord, Sun Rider
The All Father is most often depicted as a huge male, heavily armed and armored warrior. Sometimes he is shown astride the Sun, othertimes standing on a mountain of slain enemies. Occasionally he is shown robed, holding the square headed, 2 headed hammer, before a table or room where the other gods sit, or stand below.
His symbols are the demi sun, a splendant sun, the Hammer, which looks like a one legged pie symbol, the crossed hammers, worn by every leader of his temple.

Any enemy should be sacraficed to the Father, White metal, any victory can be given to the father. The dawn and the dusk are sacred unto the Sun Rider, as dusk will always follow dawn which will alwayus follow dusk. Yellow and red metal will be accepted as sacraficed, as white metal is used for weapons, not sacrafice.
The Leaders of the Armies of the faithful have a military structure, and many of the priests are secular soldiers as well. The priest of the All Father tend to be much more strict disciplinarian ensuring that voices and postures are rigid, and that faith is properly displayed. Finally, the Priests of the Sun rider often tend to be much more outdoor oriented, making shrines to the sun.
The Hammers of the All Father. They are often the special soldiers of the army of the faithful, capable of operating in a military unit, under the guidance of the leaders of the armies, or on their own. Most of the Hammers are followers of the Warlord, however, there are Hammers of both the Sun Rider and the All Father and although they are similar “special soldiers” they often spend a great deal of time defending or carrying out the missions of their divine guide.
The Army of the Faithful, or the Lay, form their own branch of the holy army. Far and away the lay worship the Warlord, but the other faces do have some followers but they ususally follow the more agreeable Gods, such as Dawn Walker or Home Keeper. However, the Father will accept any who would take up a weapon.
The Warlord is the first creation of Breath, taken the majority of the essence from Aether and War. He tired of being the plaything of the elders, and led the uprising and overthrow of them.
The All Father has three aspects, The Warlord, who leads the mortal and the immortal armies and a master of the orders of the Armies. The Sun Rider is he who drives the sun each morning across the sky, looking down on all the battlefields of all the worlds. The All Father cares for and disciplines all of the other divines.
