Bagni Gullymaw

by Marco Dalmonte

(The Great Devourer)
Patron of Trolls, Patron of Cannibalism
Level, Alignment, Sphere: 13 (Celestial), CE, Entropy
Symbol: two blood dripping fangs
Portfolio: violence, cannibalism, trolls, humanoids
Worshipped in: Known World (Vestland, Broken Lands, Darokin), Norwold, Yazak Steppes, Davania and wherever cannibal humanoids may thrive
Appearance: a huge green-skinned troll with hair like putrid algae, claws and fangs too long even for a creature his size, always surrounded by a nauseating stench
History: Bagni is the only troll that managed to achieve immortality and he got where he is thanks to his tremendous voracity, which led him to maim, massacre and devour thousands of living beings (including a whole elephant). He thus attracted the attention of the Entropic lords, who guided him on the path of the Destroyer and welcomed him among the immortals around XII century BC, after he left on his path a long trail of atrocities and destruction.
Personality: Bagni is the patron of trolls and he encourages any cult based on cannibalism and violent destruction. He's way smarter than common trolls, but despite being an Immortal he is not remembered for his wits or cunning. Bagni is the quintessential troll: huge, gross, brutal and always hungry.
He is a fierce enemy of Halav and Thor, who have always inspired their followers against Bagni's humanoids and have faced him directly more than a couple of times, leaving him beaten and humiliated.
Patron: unknown [likely: Orcus]
