Baor (the "Host of Baor")

Whether the fulfillment of prophecy or a divine balancing after a bout of lust, the youngest of the gods was conceived by rape of Celene. It is said she tried to get rid of the baby and buried in the deepest ocean trench, where it grew strong and eventually grew strong broke to the surface. While it is called Baor, little is known of the dark devourer even by those alien creatures it brought with it when it tried to conquer the lands now known as the Shattered Sea. It is not even known if it one being or (it is conjectured) a collection of destructive personalities. Even its (their) looks are unknown, although it is claimed he is completely alien in appearance. His motives are nearly as mysterious and temples have cropped up to appease him, though the manner is hotly debated. One certain thing is his power and the world has changed since it arrived.

Temples to Baor

As has been stated, Baor is not a god as such and does not reward those who worship at their feet. However, that has not stopped the Baorn from recruiting humans (and other races) to their side. One of the most common is the Black Sheet. Inspired by the blacks sails the invaders have put on captured ships, many have taken to hanging black sheets outside the local Serachle and burning sacrifices to appease the Baor. Many mad (and some merely opportunistic) prophets preside over these temples, demanding tribute and warning of the new dooms to come. Some small boons (1ST-3RD level spells) are being granted to some of these zealots and helps build a base for the madness of the Baorn to spread. It is said that some bawdy houses have taken to hanging black curtains to signify that ‘rites of pleasure’ can be found within. This symbolism delights the Baorn as it is so close to truth, in that the sheet is nothing, but Baor is the wind of corruption that fills the sail — propelling mankind to their own downfall.
