Where to find


Death is too powerful a force for even a single god to contain. It is a duty that has been passed from hand to hand, splintered into smaller pieces - disease, war, funeral rites - but there must always be an overseer of the cycle as life falls away.

For countless aeons, it was Jergal. The Lord of the End of Everything presided over mortality with his unblinking stare, until even he grew weary. Young Bhaal, Bane, and Myrkul must have thought themselves conquerors when they came for the god of death, yet he used their ambitions to free himself.

Myrkul claimed primacy over death from Jergal's bargain, but even he does not rule death alone. What is murder if not the most violent of deaths, seized by Bhaal in his incessant greed? What need would there be for noble Kelemvor to judge passing souls, if one deity could hold the process entire?

Even gods can die, after all. Those who worship death should remember that above all else.
