Time is the only god that doesn’t sponsor a secondary concept.

Darkness

They’re excellent orators and negotiators, working hard to keep everything running smoothly for all parties involved.

The secondary concept of earth is growth and lots of priests and priestesses often give blessings to lands in need as well as raising animals and growing crops. Followers of the religion will often take paths involved in farming and floristry. The earth sect is the most popular one in South Kamerian which prays heavily to help with farming in the area.
