Deity of wine, mirth, and madness, Dionysus Nemyth as a young man carrying an amphora of wine, a lyre, and a thyrsus. Like Eyvra, he is an agricultural god with power over fertility of both land and creatures, but is limited to vines, wine, and wine’s influence on mortals.

Nemyth is called Women-Maddener because of his ability to inspire frenzy in his worshipers (particularly women). He is the son of Avasir by a mortal woman.

Dogma

Nemyth’s “dogma” is more of a way of life—a life of whimsy and abandon, free from any fetters of custom, law, inhibition, or morality. Freedom is a cardinal virtue of Nemyth’s faith and a higher principle than good or evil. All too often, drunken revelry turns into drunken savagery, but Nemyth condemns neither. Mortals worship Nemyth whenever they drink wine, pouring out a little of their drink in his honor.
