|Scuttlecove, as depicted in Dungeon #146 (2007).|
|Religions||Incabulos, Vecna, various demon lords and dukes of Hell|
Scuttlecove was founded by the Holy Triad, a group of three ur-priests, blasphemers who steal power from the gods, offering only contempt in return. The Holy Triad were, as if this were not enough, cannibals, and they organized a monastic order known as the Monks of the Dire Hunger to serve them. They imposed no rule of law on the new settlement save one: the worship of divine beings was forbidden under penalty of death. The settlement attracted the barbarous pirates of the archipelago, and within a few years it was a thriving, if unspeakably decadent, city.
In 592 CY the Holy Triad was deposed, and since then the city has been on the edge of civil war as various factions seek to fill the vacuum left by their absence.
Scuttlecove's economy is based mainly on the trafficking of narcotics, slaves, and stolen goods.
Although religious faith was outlawed for most of the city's history, cults have bloomed in recent years, with temples of such vile gods as Incabulos and Vecna appearing alongside the worship of demons and devils, whose faiths are Scuttlecove's most popular.
