    Default Re: - The War of Existence - 3.5 Campaign World

    Religion

    There are six deities in “The War of Existence” campaign setting plus a religion that grants domains. The deities will be followed by a short description of the Gods and then their Domains. Not all DnD domains are listed, but many are.

    It is important to note, that clerics MUST have a deity in order to prepare spells. The exceptions are clerics of the Way of the Two Dragons, and clerics who have their alignment forcibly altered, (i.e magic, vampirism, etc.), so that it is out of sync with their patron deity. The latter has 1 week of spell preparation before they lose the ability to cast spells, unless of course they adopt a new deity's teachings. Clerics who willfully commit acts which would shift their alignment out of sync immediately lose their spell casting capabilities, until they find a new deity.

    The Gods

    The Holy Tribunal

    The Tribunal is usually worshiped as a whole, rather than individually, but some individuals find they have more in common with one of the tribunal than the others, and Clerics adopt a patron's teachings.

    Jovaan
    Jovaan is the God of Courage and Nobility and is neutral good. He takes the form of a humanoid panther, with golden eyes. He wears black armor and carries the Aurum Blade.

The teachings of Jovaan also include that there is only honor in how you choose your battles, during them, anything goes. Unfortunately, Jovaan's message to mortals is not always understood, and many mortals argue over where the line is drawn between justice, and evil.
    Common followers of Jovaan include paladins, and anyone with a strong sense of Justice. Athletes often too, pay homage to Jovaan. .

But over time she saw that Malox's laws were arbitrarily harsh, and only meant to impose his will on those weaker than himself.

There is a fine line between guidance, and control, and Kess knows exactly where that line is.

    Gamigin is arguably the least understood of all devils. He is known as “The Watcher”, for Gamigin sits atop a tower 666 stories tall, where he surveys all of Abyss for the enemies of Malox. Of all of the original arch-devils, he is the only one to have had his body twisted and warped into a scaly form like modern pitfiends. Although, he often uses his magic to disguise himself as his original form. Even still, while in his horrific new form, Gamigin is still easily distinguished from the common rabble. The Lord of the 1st is known to be stoic, and patient, and often discovers and exploits his enemies' weaknesses without fail. Gamigin is Lawful Evil.
    Gamigin does not have many mortal followers. He does not actively assist in Malox's endeavors. His maxim is to observe, and report. Gamigin carries a Halberd as his favored weapon.

    Domains: Evil, Knowledge, Law, Protection , War

    Solakta, The Herald of Heldor
    Solakta was once a mortal human, who united the tribes of the southern deserts of Myzandus. He was so devoted to Malox, and possessed such a mastery of magic, that when his soul was banished to Heldor, he overthrew his devil overlords with strength like an archfiend. Recognizing his power and devotion, Malox bestowed upon Solakta the powers of a devil lord, and granted him the 2nd district of Heldor to rule over.

    His desire for revenge is so great, that he has the strongest spiritual connection to Narium, and can be summoned through a dark ritual at the place of his mortal death. In fact, he nearly was reincarnated on Narium, as was foretold in the Malacon. Thamuz is Lawful Evil.
    His worshipers consist primarily of Velmerans that still believe in the old ways. cultists of his are constantly seeking ways to resurrect their patron and bring about a glorious war that will cover the world. Thamuz carries a Longspear as his favored weapon.

    Domains: Strength, Destruction, Evil, Law, Nobility

    Remora, the Dark Lady
    Remora is the most reclusive of all the rulers of Heldor. Her fur is alabaster, with black streaks running over her eyes. She is known as the Lady of Sorrow, the Pale Mistress, and the Queen of Puppets. Although, while she herself remains isolated from even other devils, her influence reaches far across the planes. It was through her agents that mortals learned necromancy, and the secrets of un-life.
    Her fortress burrows deep beneath Heldor, where even the red glow of the infernos of Heldor do not reach. There she remains, with only the undead to keep her company. Those who commit suicide are often given to Remora, where she reshapes their souls into agonizing mockeries of life, with no will of their own. Remora is Neutral Evil
    In older days, people would commit the souls of the dead to her in hopes that it would appease her, thus preventing the corpses from rising from their graves. These days, her cultists are primarily necromancers that wish to learn all they can about immortality. Remora carries a flail as her favored weapon.

    Domains: Death, Darkness, Evil, Trickery, Void

    Gol'Goroth, Master of the Pits

    Domains: Artifice, Evil, Destruction, Law, War

    Naru, the Deal Maker
    Naru is the archdevil of bargains. Sly and charismatic, Naru sends her agents to tempt mortals with power, wealth, love or any other desires they may have. All she asks in return is their soul. Undeniably to most nonchalant of her counter-parts, Naru in fact plays a vital roll in gathering more powerful souls for the hosts of Heldor. She appears most often when heroes are in dire straights, (most likely caused discreetly by Naru in the first place), offering a simple, (but costly), solution to all their problems.
    Naru is slim, with soft, violet fur, except for the blue spirals along her arms. Two small horns poke up behind her ears, barley even noticeable. Her demeanor seems always charming, soothing, and happy. She is known as the Pact Maker, and the Gentle Deceiver. Naru is Lawful Evil.

    Domains: Charm, Evil, Knowledge, Law, Rune

    Bel'Durog, the Spymaster
    Bel'Durog is the spymaster of the underworld. A shadow that stalks the darkest reaches of Abyss and beyond. Known to be cunning, ruthless and unwavering in his duty, the Lord of the 7th retrieves intelligence, eliminates threats to Malox's regime, and sows discord among enemy ranks. While not as physically as imposing as some of the other archfiends, his mastery of magic, and his ability to fool all but the most powerful divination magics puts fear into both the arch-devils, and Malox's foes. With a wit that matches Naru, Bel'Durog leaves not only fatal wounds, but biting insults which leave the few survivors enraged and demoralized.
    Bel'Durog's fur is the color of charcoal, with the exception of the white rune patterns that cover his chest and back. Two small horns protrude from his forehead, curving backwards. Behind those, are two larger horns, also curving elegantly behind his head. He is known as the Shadow of Death, Doom Bringer and the Smiling Assassin. Ba"Rash is Lawful Evil.

    Domains: Evil, Darkness, Death, Law, Trickery

    Desmodia, the Fallen
    Desmodia is the most tragic of all the arch-devils. She was once an Angel, close friends with Da'ara, before she became jealous of the Goddess, and aligned herself with Malox, with the promise of being able to usurp Da'ara's position as the queen of Celanus. When she fell completely into darkness, the light of Celanus blinded her so severe, not even Malox could reverse the effect. But her blindness does not hinder the Dread Angel, for she is gifted with Void Sight, and can predict the actions of mortals and spirits alike. While not true foresight, this power allows Desmodia to determine the most probable outcome of the actions and events of mortals, even across planes. She sees what events might unfold should heroes succeed in their goals, and marks them for death, or more often than not, “alteration”.
    Desmodia retains her angelic appearance, but only as a mockery. Her fur is snow white, with golden stripes down her back, and still wears her blood red halo as a reminder of “where she belongs”. Desmodia is known as the Dread Angel, the Betrayer, and Mistress of the Voidsight. Desmodia is Lawful Evil.
    Her cultists are few and far between. They alwasy keep a low profile, but once their mistress calls them to action, they obey without hesitation. Desmodia carries a morningstar as her favored weapon.

    Domains: Evil, Law, Luck, Magic, War

    Sarolah, The Grand Inquisitor
    Among all of Malox's lieutenants, there is none more fearsome then Sarolah. The 9th Lord makes it his business to be the most terrifying force in existence. Sarolah's one purpose is to break mortal souls into submission. Those few strong souls who resist the infernal influence of Heldor wind up in Sarolah's torture chambers. Such souls are usually mortals with good hearts, but made either a great sacrifice, or a bargain which sealed their fate to Heldor. These souls often show more resilience and determination, and they resist the diabolic transformation. But no known mortal (or angel for that matter) is said to have endured the torment wrought by Sarolah.
    Sarolah stands twice the size of a regular human. Stark white fur with winding black runes covers his body. He has blood red eyes, and six large horns sprouting behind his ears. The Grand Inquisitor is one who delights in the suffering of others, and his methods of torture put to shame even the most atrocious of mortal designs. Even other arch-devils avoid Sarolah when they can. He is known as the Lord of Agony, the Breaker of Angels, and the Eater of Light. Sarolah is Lawful Evil
    His cultists kidnap and torture mortals into serving their dark master. Anyone who resists is killed ... eventually. Sarolah carries a spiked chain as his favored weapon.

Mianna Vel's only goals are to seduce Jovaan, and conquer the upper planes. Common worshipers of Mianna Vel include evil barbarians and sorcerers. Rogues often pay homage to her as well, and any other individual who hates the idea that anyone should dictate what they should do. A cleric of Mianna Vel has access to the following patrons:
    Spoiler: The Demons
    Show


    Amun-Braza, Demon of the Void
    Amun-Braza is Mianna Vel's chief commander. He alone commands enough respect to force any other lesser demon to his bidding, and is controlled enough to lead them. He does not covert followers to Mianna Vel's cause, he makes them fear the inevitable; that demons will rule the cosmos in the end, and chaos will reign. Better to hurry it's end and earn a quick death, that to live in agony as one so foolish enough to oppose Mianna Vel.
    The Demon lord stands nearly 12 feet tall. White fur and prismatic runes dance along his body, and his pupils swirl like a vortex. Two massive ram horn sprout from behind his ear. Amun-Braza is known as the Herald of Demnia, Crusher of Hope, and the Inescapable Fury. Amun-Braza is Neutral Evil.

    Domains: Evil, War, Nobility, Strength, Void

    N'rash, Demon of Insanity
    No being in existence is more confusing than N'rash. He is capable of a coherent conversation one minute, then spouting off absurdities the next, always speaking in insane riddles, and forcing mortals to play cruel games for his amusement. N'rash cares little for Mianna Vel's agenda, but he is not so crazy as to fight her whenever she orders him around. Plus there are certain ... benefits that come through obedience. N'rash does not have a cult, or any sort of formal organization. The insane just seem to gather together and construct monuments in his name, ever grateful for the blessing of wisdom N'rash has bestowed.
    N'Rash, in his usual form, stands about the size of a human. Half his body his covered in purple, with yellow polka-dots, while the other half is bright yellow with purple stripes. On his purple half, a curly horn sticks out to the side, on the yellow half, a horn neatly curves upwards. N'Rash is Chaotic Evil.
    With no official religion, one would think N'Rash would have no cultists to speak of, yet throughout the world, insane mortals commit atrocities in his name. N'Rash's weapon alters it's form randomly, claiming no true form. Thus he has no favored weapon. Clerics of N'rash start the game with a random proficiency, from these tables. (Not the magic items tables, the random weapon tables).

    Domains: Chaos, Evil, Luck, Madness, Void

    Ag'Staphos, Demon of Destruction
    Ag'Staphos is less a demon than he is a force of nature. A constant maelstrom of destructive force whirls around him in a dark vortex that blocks out all light. He is malice incarnate. The demon's philosophy of "only war" appeals strongly to barbaric tribes and mortals driven mad by bloodlust. "Only the strong are worthy to live, thus you must always prove you are strong. Kill those weaker than you, it is your right. Take no prisoners, for the meek shall have no place in this world. And above all, kill, because you can."
    In a rare moment when he is in a calmer state, and not a walking pillar of fire, Ag'Staphos has brown fur, with a black torso and legs. Four horns curve backwards out of his skull, and two more spikes protrude outwards from behind his elbows. Ag'Staphos is chaotic evil.
    Ag'Staphos is a popular patron among war-like tribes of short lived races, such as goblins. Giant's too, worship him as a pinnacle of might. His cultists lead hordes of warriors to fight and plunder anywhere they can get to. Ag'Staphos carries an earthbreaker as his favored weapon.

    Domains: Chaos, Destruction, Evil, Fire, Strength

    Exapha, Demon of Lust
    Mianna Vel's personal consort, Exapha is the demon of lust and excess. He spends most of eternity in the Golden Palace of Demnia, in a near constant state of euphoria. But his idleness should not be mistaken for weakness. Exapha's talent for compelling mortal to commit horrors should not be underestimated. With a mere appeal to a mortal's base needs, Exapha can control and direct countless individuals and have them fully relinquish themselves to the ecstasy achieved through wickedness. Exapha preaches no restraint, that others are there for your amusement, whether you amuse each other, or for one to fall prey to your own need of enjoyment. In short, if it feels good, then it is good.
    Exapha hardly ever wares any bit of clothing, preferring to show off his body and physique. He has orange fur, with a dark blue circle on his chest. Radial lines expand from the circle like the rays of the sun. two small horns poke out from his skull. Exapha is chaotic evil. Exapha is chaotic evil.

    Domains: Chaos, Charm, Evil, Liberation, Trickery

    Ghulla-Thulla, Demon of Disaster
    A disgusting and repulsive being to behold, Ghulla-Thulla is among the chief causes of mortal misery. His very being is that of a coal black wolf, with large dead eyes. A viscous slime makes up his skin, that only looks like the fur of a wolf. But it melts away constantly, leaving a trail of horrible black ichor wherever the demon treads, and he stands in a hunched position, like a dull-witted brute. Two horns sprout from his head, and arch inwards.
    Ghulla-Thulla never misses the opportunity to spread famine and disease, or to upturn social order, causing nations to spiral into chaos. Many a mortal have made terrible sacrifices in Ghulla-Thulla's name, in hopes that he might spare them of the plague, or perhaps cure a loved one.
    Very few cultists of Ghulla-Thulla exists, for most worshippers are simply mortals who fear a slow death. On rare occasions, it has been recorded that certain farming communities regular sacrifice sapient souls in the belief that Ghulla-Thulla will spare their crops. Ghulla-Thulla carries a sickle as his favored weapon and is chaotic evil.

    Domains: Chaos, Death, Destruction, Evil, War

    Illuvia, Demon of Envy
    One might think Illuvia timid by demonic standards. Her slender form, soft green fur and tiny horns don't portray the savagery one thinks of when discussion demon lords. She is overtly jealous of the power Mianna Vel wields, yet at the same time worships her. She tries with all her might to emulate her goddess. Every decision she makes she first considers if it's what Mianna Vel would do. All of this is in the vain hope that she will become as powerful as she is.
    Her interaction with mortals are few and far between. Only mortals seeking to obtain what they desire most, or to harm the object of their envy come to her, and she gleefully provides wisdom on the topic of causing misery to one that doesn't deserve what they have. All she asks for in return is for the mortal to amuse her, somehow. Illuvia carries a whip has her favored weapon, just like Miaana Vel and is chaotic evil.

    Xol'xi'aaz, Demon of Fear
    The darkness that creeps along the outer reaches of your vision. The black though that haunts you while you dream. The monster that fills your mind with dread. Xol'xi'aaz; lord and master of the darkest reaches of the abyss. A terrifying, enigmatic presence that fuels mortal paranoia. No one except the demon lords themselves have ever truly glimpsed him. But he is most certainly there; watching, waiting.
    Among mortals, Xol'xi'aaz spreads fear and mistrust. Nothing brings him greater joy than mortals turning against each other. Many ghost stories involve some agent of Xol'xi'aaz snapping the minds of mortals through shear terror.
    His cultists are those who have had their minds broken by fear. A fear so terrible they wish to never again experience the torture of re-living that nightmare. So they serve their master, doing his will upon Narium for the sake of being free. Xol'xi'aaz uses a dagger as his favored weapon and is chaotic evil.

    Domains: Chaos, Evil, Darkness, Madness, Trickery

    Y'vos, Queen of Anarchy
    Y'vos was once the prominent disciple of Astoroth, the devil of greed. But long ago, she found Malox's agenda to be far too boring for her liking. Thus she defected to Mianna Vel's court, intrigued by the notion that she could rule her hordes as she saw fit. But the hierarchy of demons is not one for subtle manipulation. She missed the subterfuge and cross dealings that were the bread and butter of the diabolic social structure. So she turned her attention to the new world of Narium.
    Y'vos cultists are promised power and comfort in their after lives as part of Y'vos' cult, in return, they are to corrupt mortals into serving Mianna Vel's ends. Many a demon lord destroys social orders, but none do it so masterfully as Y'vos and her cult. Worshipers play all sides of a conflict. In the background, they pull the strings that cause kingdoms to fall into civil war.
    Y'vos is covered in purple fur, with golden lines running down her head and back. Two small horns poke out of her forehead, while two larger horn accompany them, arching elegantly back. Y'vos' favored weapon is a rapier and she is neutral evil.

    Domains: Charm, Darkness, Evil, Liberation, trickery

    Sesazu, Demon of Entropy
    Sesazu is the outcast among the demon lords. She was once an angel who promoted peace and wellbeing. But came to the realization that peace, true peace, was something that was impossible to reach in this world. Thus, in order to be true to her nature, she concluded that for there to be peace, all forms of life in the multiverse must be extinguished. From the gods down to the lowliest mortal, and even herself. All must be eradicated for the sake of peace.
    She works with demons only because she knows that it will suit her ends. It matters not what methods she employs to wipe out all life, because in the end, it will not matter. She has virtually no cultists, as few people have even heard of her existence. But she is out in the dark corners of the Abyss, concocting a plan that will tear Narium asunder, and destroy all that the Void created eons ago. Sesazu's favored weapon is a glaive, and she is chaotic evil.

    Belial, Formerly the 9th Lord of Heldor
    Among every culture, there is always one being of legend. The fiends of Heldor are no different. The one arch-devil that put to shame any other fiend barring Malox himself is non-other than Belial. Even Sarolah stepped aside when Belial walked through the halls of Malox's fortress. He is known as the Pride Lord, the Black Commander, and the One-With-No-Master. When Narsus created the Schism between Abyss and Celanus, Belial was unfortunate enough to fall down to Narium. He landed with several of his solders along with his enemy, the Demon general Baal. Despite this, he slew Baal, and rallied his soldiers, all the while awaiting word from Malox. When Malox sent no message, Belial would not take such an insult to his pride, and to his loyalty. He vowed to end Malox, and every God that would go against him.
    Belial stands twice as tall as a regular human, with blond fur, and black, rigid runes that crisscross all over his body. Four massive horns sprout behind his ears, which emanate black smoke.

    Astaroth, Formerly the 8th Lord of Heldor
    Sly, charming, not unlike Naru, Astaroth is the epitome of greed. Of all the archdevils, his greed and ambition was so great, he attempted a coup against Malox. Unfortunately for the King of Kings, the coup was not successful, in part due to his “apprentice” Naru, and his brother Gol'Goroth betraying his plans to Malox, and in part to the immense, and vastly underestimated, power the God of Hatred and Greed possessed. It was all Astaroth could do to flee to a pocket dimension, a fugitive from all factions, Angels, Devils and Demons. But true to his nature, Astaroth still has a habit of hoarding wealth that would make the greed of red dragons seem like a minor hobby. Astaroth tends to interact with mortals the most, usually to kill them and take their valuables, but sometimes (if the mortals use the proper abjurations), Astaroth is willing to buy, sell, trade information and items of power for not-so-fair prices.
    The Former Lord looks much like his brother Gol'Goroth, although he is lacking his brother's stature. Astaroth still has the jet black fur, although instead of the red stripe over his left eye, he bears a red, comet-like streak over his right eye, and two decently sized horns emerge from his skull.
