Nomog-Geaya was the hobgoblin deity of war and authority.[1]

Physical descriptionEdit

The god appeared as a huge, powerful goblin with rough, ash-gray skin, cold orange eyes, and teeth like a shark's.[1]


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.[1]


The hobgoblin deity fought with a +3 wounding broadsword in one hand, and his +2 handaxe, which bore a symbol of pain, in the other.[1]


Maglubiyet allowed Nomog-Geaya and Khurgorbaeyag to live in his realm of Clangor on the plane of Acheron to better keep an eye on them.[citation needed]


Nomog-Geaya was subservient to Maglubiyet, and detested Bargrivyek, the goblin deity of territory.[1]


As patron deity of hobgoblins, he was second only to Maglubiyet in hobgoblin religion and his symbol was a crossed broadsword and handaxe.[1]


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.[2][3] The idol was destroyed in −1931 DR by Calishite armies.[4]
