Grasp of Orcus
Prince of Demons, the Sibilant Beast, and Master of the Spiraling Depths, Demogorgon is the embodiment of chaos, madness, and destruction, seeking to corrupt all that is good and undermine order in the multiverse, to see everything dragged howling into the infinite depths of the Abyss.
The demon lord is a meld of different forms, with a saurian lower body and clawed, webbed feet, as well as suckered tentacles sprouting from the shoulders of a great apelike torso, surmounted by two hideous simian heads, named Aamcul and Hathradiah, both equally mad. Their gaze brings madness and confusion to any who confront it.
Similarly, the spiraling Y sign of Demogorgon’s cult can inspire madness in those who contemplate it for too long. All the followers of the Prince of Demons go mad, sooner or later.
Demogorgon makes his lair in a palace called Abysm, found on a layer of the Abyss known as the Gaping Maw.
Demogorgon’s lair is a place of madness and duality; the portion of the palace that lies above water takes
the form of two serpentine towers, each crowned by a skull-shaped minaret. There, Demogorgon’s heads
contemplate the mysteries of the arcane while arguing about how best to obliterate their rivals. The bulk of
this palace extends deep underwater, in chill and darkened caverns.
The Evening Group encountered Demogorgon when he rose out of the waters of the Darklake near Sloobludop and attacked the city. He did not take any particular notice of them, and that is why they were able to escape while he laid waste to the kuo-toa and their homes.
