The Blighted Mother
The Blighted Mother, Mistress Of Vermin, Plaguebringer
Worshiped primarily by certain tribes of beastmen, the Blighted Mother is said to be the progenitor of all the world’s vermin and the source of all disease. She has shamans amongst the ratlings, gnolls, bullywugs, troglodytes and some races of swamp-dwelling lizard men. Cultists pray to her to bring plagues upon their enemies or save them when disease stalks the streets. Given her freedom, she would unleash terrible plagues on the world and reduce it all to rot and carrion for her children to feast on.
The Blighted Mother is depicted as a grossly bloated figure akin to an emaciated and diseased female ratling with the lower body of a queen ant resting atop a nest of segmented tails and many-jointed legs.
