Thieves World Campaign
Symbol: Lightning bolt. Domains: Conquest, War, Weather. Favored Weapon: Greatsword. Few gods are as famous or as destructive as Vashanka. The god of storms and war’s persistence has long been the driving force behind Ranke’s expansion. However, with the god’s supposed destruction at Shadowspawn’s hands, Ranke lost the momentum to continue its aggression, marking the end of the empire. Since Vashanka’s supposed demise, several other gods have risen to claim his mantle, including Stormbringer, Enlil, possibly Shepherd, and the god children who vanished shortly after the Stepsons pulled out of Sanctuary. However, in the time since, Vashanka’s priests have regained their ability to cast spells. This suggests that the god has found a way back, and may soon wreak havoc in Thieves’ World once more.
