Depictions of Rymrgand, or a similar god, has been found in the oldest Engwithan ruins, predating all current civilization. This makes him one of the oldest, more primal deities. He shares a complicated relationship with another such deity, Berath, both being masters of death. Rymrgand overseeing the cold, destructive act of death itself, Berath determining who will be reborn just as certainly as who will die. Rymrgand is the executioner's axe - Rymrgand shows kith that all life ends in stillness.
 
"The Beast of Winter" manifests as a massive aurochs, its albino fur encrusted with ice and snow. Stories tell that the creature is thirty feet tall, sometimes even taller, but despite its massive size it appears cadaverous as it hasn't eaten in weeks. There are innumerable stories of the god's terrifying passage through the lands of Eora. When the Beast of Winter stirs, bitter winds and beastly howling follow the creature's every move. Wherever the beast plants a hoof, all life withers into dust, even the gods flee from its way.
 

Though the Beast of Winter is shrouded in snowy clouds, those who have seen the shaggy white monster claim that the souls of the fallen can be seen clinging (or perhaps frozen) to the beast's fur. The boreal dwarves have stories of heroes trying to save the souls from their fate, though as a rule ending in failure.

 

Rymrgand, alias "The Beast of Winter"

 

Ingame description of PoE. :)

If I hadn't brought the DLC during the kickstarter, I probably would have paid nearly any amount for a "be a priest of Rymrgand" DLC. I'm part of the problem. But yeah, it does seem unlikely. If they add extra subclasses, especially priest or paladin ones, they'd probably have to go back through the main quest and add new dialogue options, which, with full voicing, would be a significant piece of work, unless they left those lines unvoiced.

Man, to everyone wanting a priest of whatever or a steel garrote Paladin, I have one burning question - do you really not have enough options to build your character in this game?

 

Not for those two classes, no. Especially not for BOTH of those two classes. If you want to make a Templar you better want a VERY specific thing, otherwise you're forced to compromise pretty heavily in both roleplaying and mechanical choices.

 

Mind you, a lot of this could be avoided if they would just NOT have things tied to your character's reputation, but alas, keeping archaic notions of enforcing a code of conduct became a design choice at some point.

Err...not really. I REALLY LIKE Rymrgand's portfolio. It is the one that most interests me. I would pay extra now for access to a Priest of Rymrgand. No other god stirs me as much as it/he does.

Depending on what new subclasses they make available, it can add a lot of roleplaying value. Imagine you favored Woedica in the end of the first game. Wouldn't it be cool to play as a Steel Garrote or as one of her priests? Or both, assuming that was possible?
