The Seven Lost Gods is a term used to describe various groups of powerful entities at different times. Some of these entities might have been primordials, and candidates include Dendar the Night Serpent, Kezef the Chaos Hound, and Borem of the Boiling Mud.[1]

The Adventure Book that accompanied the Pool of Radiance computer game identified the following entities as "those who fell down and became servants of the great lord Bane": Maram of the Great Spear; Haask, Voice of Hargut; Tyranthraxus the Flamed One; Borem of the Lake of Boiling Mud; and Camnod the Unseen.[2] This was the first mention of Borem, who has been canonically identified as one of the "Lost Gods" who may have been slain by Bane, Bhaal, and Myrkul as part of their apotheosis.[3])

The Cloak & Dagger Web Enhancement mentions two different sets of Seven Lost Gods.[4] Originally, the term referred to the seven demipowers that bowed before Bane long ago, including the five already named and two others whose names have been forgotten. More recently, seven deities were worshiped in temples outside the city of Westgate during the Templeban Edict (927 DR to 1018 DR).

Faiths & Avatars has a little more on the Lost Gods of Westgate. It says that each temple is beneath one of the seven hills to the west of the city, topped with a ring of standing stones. The southernmost is the Hill of Fangs, formerly a temple of Moander.[5]

The other Lost Gods of Westgate are Garagos, Ghaunadaur, Jergal, Savras, Silvanus, and one deity whose name has been forgotten.[6]
