Wrath of God(Book).Which god is meant?

Hi,I was curious which Valar is technically the patron of the priest and paladin.
If its not defined I would propose to add an option to choose the name of the God in Character creation that would change the name of the book to Wrath of (insertgodnamehere)

How about "Wrath of the Valar" ?

That's good too but it would heavily implicate the priest/paladin is a champion of all the good valars and not a specific one

The whole concept is a bit messed up wrt God vs Valar anyway. The Valar don't have the ability to provide divine influence through 'priests'. Even the 'Doom of Mandos' was more a prophecy than a divine curse.

in essence, the Valar are no more than immortals (like the elves are) with greater power at their personal disposal.

This book is a holdover from the days when we still had Angels and Archons and so on as monsters, so the god in question is probably the Christian God.

How about a Book of Prayers "Apocalyptic Prophecies"?

I admit I'm not really familiar with the pantheon, but Eru doesn't really strike me as the wrathful type. Tulkas, maybe.

The (literal) crushing of Ar-Pharazon & co. and the drowning/sinking of Numenor comes to mind.
