The Whispering Children were twenty-two powerful artifacts in the form of portraits. In reality, they were the transformed demi-power children of the god Oghma.[1] The paintings were referred to as Whispering Children because they whispered secrets to those nearby.[citation needed]

HistoryEdit

Shortly after ascending to godhood, Oghma fathered many demi-power children.[2] A few of his children decided to each specialize in an area of knowledge of their choosing. Twenty-two of the children were turned away from Oghma by Cyric, who transformed them into paintings.[3] The goddess Mystra attempted to take the paintings from Cyric but he scattered the paintings across Faerûn and most were lost. The noble house Norjah of Airspur managed to collect seven of the children. The knowledge held by the Whispering Children was dangerous to the gods, especially to Oghma.[1]

Known Whispering ChildrenEdit

  • The Necromancer — This painting was composed of many disturbing scenes that, when combined, created a face.[4]. It knew many secrets of necromancy[5] and could even cast spells.[6]
