Bromion The Minor God Of Reason & Super Science For Your Old School Campaigns

Bromion is the god of order, reason & super science as well as the patron for adventurers who need to identify and learn to use relics, artifacts and occult treasures. But he is a god who hides a secret behind a facade of miracles and mummery. This being is an alien god at best who though he understands technology and science quite easily he has a very hard time understand the flesh slugs and meat bags that serve him in this time space continuum.
He is represented by broken statues depicting the alien nature of this god to those who can read the scared symbolism seen in his representations.
Bromion is one part of a scared alien god mind and represents the reasoning side of this alien mind. His temples are seen across the planes, dimensions, and universes and are small unassuming Greek style affairs.

A strange crystal representation of the god sits in the center of the temple and seems to wash into itself with the scared light of Bromion. His agents and priests wander the wastelands collecting by any means necessary any dangerous or horrid technological item,relic, or weapon. These are identified by his cult, studied, and destroyed.
Bromion is a fickle god of order at best  and his priests never know how their god will react when contacted for minor favors. He has within his service twelve Titans to handle the day to day tedium of his cult and the sacred number of temples.
Bromion has several minor abilities at his disposal at one time these are all usable up to five times a day: Identify item or device, Control technology, Lightning strike, Legend Lore, Recharge cell or battery, Destroy technology, darkness within a 20 foot radius, Contact Other Plane, Summon Cybernetic entity, Charm Person, Cloud of Reason, and EMP pulse within a forty yard radius.
Because of his alien nature Bromion's reaction may be fickle at best and completely alien at worst. Here is a random 1d10 chart of alien reactions for Bromion.
