That Which Lurks


God of abominations, Ghaunadaur was originally a member of the drow pantheon but following the War of the Spider Queen he left the pantheon to break off on his own. Believed to have been touched by madness, Ghaunadaur transcended as a major deity. Although his followers are usually scattered and unorganized, larger cults have been known to exist in the Underdark.

“All creatures have their place, and all are fit to wield power. Those who hunt weed out the weak and strengthen the stock of all. Those who rebel or who walk apart find new ways and try new things and do most to advance their races. Creatures of power best house the energy of life, which Ghaunadaur reveres and represents. Make sacrifices to the Eye, persuade others to sacrifice themselves to Ghaunadaur or in service of the Eye, further knowledge and fear of Ghaunadaur, and in the end give yourself to Ghaunadaur in unresisting self-sacrifice. Convert all beings to the worship of Ghaunadaur. Slay all clergy of other faiths, plundering their temples and holdings for wealth to better your own lot and to further the worship of Ghaunadaur.”
