FORGOTTEN TEMPLE OF THARIZDUN PDF

For example, there are believed to be Gems of Tharizdun , each an minor unholy artifact. Many cults are unaware that the entity that they worship is Tharizdun. Unable to act upon the world directly, he dispenses his power from cover identities and aspects, such as the Elder Elemental Eye responsible for the infamous Temple of Elemental Evil. Many follow him in the optimistic belief that he will spare his loyal servants when he destroys the multiverse. Their goal is to bring together all of his artifacts, and to free the Ebon God from his imprisonment, where he will destroy the multiverse. They must be in contact with one of his few holy artifacts, or one of his ancient holy sites.

He is rarely referred to by name and usually referred to as the Chained God. Tharizdun is worshiped mostly by rogue drow , genasi cultists and elementals , who call him the Elder Elemental Eye, falsely believing that he is a primordial and not a god. Unlike earlier editions, he has no particular affinity for aberrations and his alignment is Chaotic Evil, rather than Neutral Evil.

He is listed as an example Pact Patron for warlocks who make a Pact with a Great Old One and is later listed in Appendix B: Gods of the Multiverse under the Greyhawk pantheon as Tharizdun, god of eternal darkness, CE, with the Trickery Domain and either a dark spiral or inverted ziggurat as his holy symbols.

Description[ edit ] Tharizdun was described in Dragon as a pitch-black, roiling, amorphous form. As the Dark God, he is described as an incorporeal wraithform, black and faceless.

Gary Gygax described Tharizdun as a "primordial deity, that of matter at rest and decay of energy, viz. His second holy symbol of an inverted ziggurat indicates that the work of those who bound him would be overturned, according to Gygax. Gygax himself indicated that the two creatures were separate beings.

Relationships[ edit ] It is believed that Tharizdun has no allies, given his desire to destroy the entire universe. Should he ever escape from his prison, it is thought that even the most evil of deities would work with their good counterparts to return Tharizdun to his prison.

However, the Dark God has been known to work his will secretly by employing various demons with or without their knowledge to do his bidding. On Oerth , Tharizdun is particularly opposed by Pelor and Boccob. Shothragot[ edit ] Tharizdun created an avatar called Shothragot at the time of the Twin Cataclysms. The avatar was thought to have been destroyed, but in reality it only went into dormancy.

Recently freed, Shothragot hopes to collect the gems of Tharizdun and set its master free. Realm[ edit ] The Demiplane of Imprisonment is hidden somewhere in the depths of the Ethereal Plane , resembling a swollen, crystalline cyst nearly a mile in diameter. Within the prison, Tharizdun dreams of a multiverse where his goals succeeded, where he destroyed all of Creation and rebuilt it in his own foul image.

The binding magic is less concerned with preventing his escape - which he could accomplish with ease should he discover the truth - but to prevent any outside source from informing him otherwise.

Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun

The module is entirely illustrated by an artist otherwise unknown to me, Karen Nelson. This level of artistic unity was unusual in TSR modules, which tended to use several artists. Here, though, the consistent look contributes greatly to the feel of the thing. There are no images of graphic violence or even of psychological disturbance.

Thoughts on The Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun

In terms of physical and narrative structure, the most obvious aspect of the module is the fact that the really cool stuff is completely hidden and almost entirely cut off. The PCs would have to discover one of two secret doors in a very out of the way place to do so, and then more secret doors to get to the really good stuff. This seems to be a recurring feature in Gygaxian dungeons. Very elaborate encounter areas filled with interesting stuff, but which could easily be ignored or which could go undiscovered entirely. In modern games, which are much more plot-driven and which demand the PCs move on to the next location to advance the story, this would indeed be a problem. I think this is an aspect of Golden Age dungeon design that is little recognized, let alone appreciated, today.
