Shargaas was the orc deity of darkness, night, stealth, thieves, and the undead. His symbol was a skull on a red crescent moon.[6][7]

RealmEdit

Shargaas lived in the Night Below,[5] an immense cavern system below the lowest known layer of the plane of Gehenna, Krangath.[4] It was said that his caves extended forever, and all were pitch black.[3] The only creatures able to see were Shargaas himself and his orc and half-orc petitioners and spirit servants.[3]

WorshipersEdit

Shargaas' priests wear red and black leather armor and leather caps. His sacred animal is the bat. His holy days are on the new moons. Stolen items are sacrificed to him monthly.[citation needed]
