Need help on a diety for blighters / Evil druids


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion


So here is the situation...

My party is playing in a mainly dwarven area in my world, and they are looking for a magic artifact known as the anvil of creation, as its name suggests this allows the user to create literally anything.

I am using a realm with similar alignment paradoxes as Dragonlance where there must be balance in the world between both good and evil, and when the dwarven diety created this powerful artifact, his own hammer was then changed into the Hammer of Destruction and can destroy anything. (He was LG and attempted to destroy his hammer but found he could not so instead he hid it away) This was considered an acceptable offering before The Elders (a high pantheon which rules over other dieties and is like a court for gods/goddesses)

The players don't know about the hammer piece yet but I want for some sort of evil druid/blighter cult to be going after this hammer of destruction to end the world, or at least attempt to.

I have been searching for a diety that would fit this role, one who has strong ties to nature, preferably a hatred of all living things and wanting to end life/existence, but one who wants to simply see the world destroyed, you know the kind who might keep a Tarasque as a pet...

The best I was able to find was Tharizdun (Cthulhu) but don't really want to use him. Again I am looking for an evil druidic kind of diety or someone who is tied to the elements in a strong way, if anyone has any ideas that would be great.

If there is any more information I can provide please let me know!


Maybe they worship Apollyon, the Horseman of Pestilence?


Ok thanks Rynjin, I might go with that one, any others?


Or perhaps Rovagug or Dahak for actual evil Gods.

Less blight and more wanton destruction though.

Rovagug, definitely. He's the CE god of wrath, disaster and destruction, and has Weather as one of his domains. He would not only keep a tarrasque as a pet, the tarrasque is one of his own offspring (another was a beetle so large that after a god killed it, the people of Osirion hollowed out it's carapace and built the center of their capital city inside of it).

He's totally your guy (bug, god, whatever) for an apocalyptic nature worshipper who wants to 'wash it all away' while Tool's Aenima plays in the background.


A side note: Blighter=/=Evil Druid.

Evil Druids still respect and revere nature, and would have nothing to do with destroying the world.

Blighters? Sure, they're insane enough to make the attempt.

Just sayin'.

Why? Necrodruids are canon for good ol' Z

Thank you everyone for the help on this, Alitan, thanks for the help on the druid thing, a friend told me something similar, whose favorite class is druid. I will definitely be drawing from all of this, thanks again!

Silver Crusade

I actually created a world where a group of druids stole a portion of the goddess of nature's power to cast an epic spell that would over run the world with plant life and take back the world. Well the goddess became angry and cursed the group of druids by taking away the one thing they loved and replaced it with the opposite. Instead of producing life they killed it so they became blighters. They were so pained by this they were driven insane.
