Thieves World Campaign
Symbol: A pair of bloody hands. Domains: Catastrophe, Disease, Madness. Favored Weapon: Dagger. Throughout the known world’s long history, civilization has always banned Dyareela. The embodiment of anarchy, destruction, and chaos, the hermaphroditic deity has a large following, spread widely through the world. Known as the Destroyer, the Dark Mother, or the Lady of Blood, she is feared by all. Sanctuary has a long and troubled history with the Mother of Chaos. In their earliest days, cultists worshiped the goddess, sacrificing their own to appease her. Though driven out of Sanctuary, Dyareela has always craved a foothold in the city, precipitating her later arrival through the vengeful S’danzo Ilyra, who thought to curse the city after the death of her last child. Though the fortuneteller and her friends managed to stop Dyareela from destroying the city with plague, the Dark Mother would not be put off for long. Shortly after the Rankans withdrew from Sanctuary, a terrible disease swept through the city, worse than ever before. On the heels of the disease came the Dyareelans seized the city in the name of their dark goddess through manipulation and fear, beginning Sanctuary’s darkest time. Though Sanctans generally believe that the Irrune destroyed the cult to the last root and branch, the Dyareelans persist, plotting their return. And though Cauvin and others know of their existence, a majority of the population wants nothing more than to forget the Troubles of the past.
