Rise of the Runelords
The Mother of Monsters, Lamashtu’s worshipers seek out deformity both in themselves and others. Scarring rituals and mutilation are common among the faithful. Although typically venerated by monstrous races, such as gnolls, goblins, and medusas, some human cults practice her dark litanies in secret, promoting tainted births and destroying works of beauty. Some use magic to become more hideous or beastlike in appearance, while her monstrous followers do the opposite to spy on city dwellers.
Lamashtu is one of countless demon lords – quite possibly the most powerful among them. One of her monikers reflects this level of power- the Demon Queen.
