As a commanding figure, Nomog-Geaya was said to have no expressions other than a grim, tight-lipped look of domineering authority. He was quiet and only spoke when he must.
As patron deity of hobgoblins, he was second only to Maglubiyet in hobgoblin religion and his symbol was a crossed broadsword and handaxe.
Circa −3400, hobgoblins and their dwarven slaves constructed a gigantic statue to Nomog-Geaya, in the Gorge of Nomog-Geaya the Warrior, at the mouth of the River Ith. The gorge became a gathering place for hobgoblin tribes for three centuries. The idol was destroyed in −1931 DR by Calishite armies.
Nomog-Geaya was first detailed in Roger E. Moore's article "The Humanoids: All About Kobolds, Goblins, Hobgoblins, and Gnolls" in Dragon #63, 1982. Later, Nomog-Geaya was detailed in the book Monster Mythology (1992), which included details about his priesthood. His role in the cosmology of the Planescape campaign setting was described in On Hallowed Ground (1996).
