While neither cruel nor evil, Nature as Law is the most uncaring and least merciful of all gods. His dictates are obeyed, not out of fear, but out of necessity. Praying to Nomos can be beneficial - if you are willing to submit to his commands.
Destroying the Statue
If you worship a god other than Nomos, they will give you a bonus of 1 favour if you destroy Nomos' statue. However, Nomos will curse you to die in a given number of turns! (Seems to be generous - 80s of turns)
If you worship Nomos, don't destroy his statue. Any time you destroy your own god's statue, you will die immediately.
