Circle of the Forsaken
Naz'Shadar and the Empire
Naz’Shadar is the most prominent evil god in existance. He teaches his followers to always strive for more power, and to oppress anyone too weak to wield power. He is a god that thrives on fear, anger, and greed. The majority of his followers are humans, although many races revere him. Due to the fact that most Elves, and Eladrin are good creatures by nature, few worship Naz’Shadar and those that do are twisted to the point of insanity. As a rule anyone who is cunning, cold, and ruthless can find themselves in his favor. Naz’Shadar rewards his followers who succeed in his name with wealth and power beyond measure. Some of his greatest followers have been rewarded with immortality in Lichdom, or being raised as Death Knights. Failure on the other hand, is often repaid with nearly endless torture. If the victim is lucky, they may earn a quick death in the hopes that they will serve the dark lord better in the afterlife.
