Herne The Huntmaster was a hunter power worshiped by the orcs of the High Forest instead of the Orc pantheon.[2]

Herne was a corrupted version of the Master of the Hunt, one of the avatars of Malar, who came to Faerûn with a wave of other interloper deities, one of whom was Oghma.[2]

It was Malar fighting and defeating Herne on Faerûn that convinced Lolth to recruit the Beastlord to join her anti-Seldarine.[3]

During the Time of Troubles, Malar killed Herne and took his portfolio. He also began posing as him, granting spells to Herne's worshipers.[2]

During the Grey Migrations of 1372 DR, the orc's faith remained strong and they took it with them to the Delimbiyr Vale and Graypeak Mountains.
