Making Monsters, Lamashtu Style

Monday, December 24, 2007

In Pathfinder #5, we have the second in our series of articles exploring the deities of Golarion. This time around, master of all things divine Sean K Reynolds talks about Lamashtu, the Mother of Monsters and one of Golarion's most notorious deities. After all, she's not just the one the goblins and gnolls and all sorts of other monsters worship—she's the one who MAKES a lot of the monsters in the first place. And if you happen to worship her, well, you might just learn how to make a few monsters of your own. We're not sure WHAT it is this gnoll ranger of Lamashtu is clutching, but it certainly qualifies as a monster!

Oh, and by the way, that's what a Golarion gnoll looks like. He's probably a lot better-groomed than most, though. Gnolls aren't that fond of personal hygiene as a general rule.
