Ovak Runestone is a half-orc priest of Kord, the god of bravery. The wisdom of Kord. Courage is the eternal assertion of freedom… Our thoughts, our words, and deeds are the invisible threads that flow through us and surround us with the strength of Kord, Kord is the guide who will show you how to face your fear, how to tap your innermost strength, and live in freedom. Through Kord… The might of our arms and courage of our brave hearts will be known! Let Kord set your heart free! Fear-weakness; courage-strength. Where there is fear, there is courage; and where there is courage there is fear. It is because there is Strength, that there is weakness; it is because there is weakness that there is strength… To understand courage, you must know fear; and to understand strength you must know weakness. The key is in finding the universal balance between fear and courage, strength and weakness. The path to absolute strength and courage is through fear and weakness, one must face fear and seek to understand it at its most fundamental and primal level. One must know that within fear lies the truth about courage, and within weakness lies the truth about strength. Fear holds the power of unlimited potential, it is what makes us as warriors quick, and strong, it focuses our mind, and when we embrace fear, and float in its endless void, we can see with clarity, and wisdom, and we are granted the ability to overcome any foe. We know that only through fear will we know perfect courage. Weakness also shows us the secrets of perfect Strength. Within our existence, nothing is more soft and yielding than water. Yet for attacking the solid and strong, nothing is better; it has no equal. The weak can overcome the strong; the supple can overcome the stiff. So through weakness can be achieved the greatest strength. These are the ways of Kord.
