Age of Worms: The Return
The Worm God
The name Kyuss has been mentioned several times by cultists of the Ebon Triad. Not much is known about him. Apparently he appeared more than a thousand years ago to the north. In a very short time he created dozens of new undead breeds and and amassed a legion of the creatures bound to his will. Rumor has it that an undead dragon stood at his side as the general of his forces, most likely Dragotha. Kyuss was once a priest of Mormekar, however he abandoned his faith in order to ascend to godhood. Using the people of his town in a dangerous ritual, he destroyed his home to achieve his goal, but was imprisoned in an Obelisk atop the Spire of Long Shadows. Kyuss is known for having created the green worms, the spawn of kyuss, and the Apostles of Kyuss. All of these hideous undead were created in his service, along with many others, but his greater achievment was the creation of a false religion, all designed towards bringing about his own release. He created the Ebon Triad to create a false purpose for the heretics of other evil religions to follow.
