Worshipers

Clergy

Kuroth's priests prefer daggers and rapiers.

Most of Kuroth's priests work as thieves, and are forbidden from destroying any item of value. Thrill-seekers, they constantly search for the greatest challenge with the biggest payoff. Such inclinations keep the priesthood's numbers low and reputation high.

History

Said to have been the greatest thief of his day, the Oeridian man known as Kuroth was quite wealthy even before attaining godhood, and only continued to pursue his thieving career in for the sake of keeping his skills honed and his reputation hale. After completing a particularly risky quest for Olidammara, Kuroth was sponsored to godhood by the Laughing Rogue.

Famous exploits of Kuroth include stealing Shandor's Gavel while the Court of Essence in Rauxes was in session and stealing flawless emeralds from Vlad Tolenkov's coffin while the vampire lord slept. (DRA#294, page 96)
