The Return of Lloth
Many years ago, Lloth the spider godess of the drow-elves was banished by
Solitaire, Heather and Torock, using the Staff of the damned, a powerful
staff made to destroy Lloth. The staff created by the great godess Whisper.
Mordecia, a foolish god infatuated with Lloth put his own counter spell
upon the staff. Unable to reverse Whispers spell, he made it possible for
Lloth to return and reclaim her immortality when the moons and planets
alligned. The same staff that banishes her to the great void beyond, is
also the one thing that can when she returns, grant her life in this world
once more. The three, knowing this shattered the staff and hid the pieces
in their perspective Kingdoms. Upon the last allignment of the planets,
Lloth returned first in drow form. She sent out her minions of evil drows
to search. The good people of Merentha along with the Old powerful prophet,
were able to retrieve the pieces and recreate the staff. By this time Lloth
had enough power to appear in her true spider form. To stop Lloth and her
minions of spiders and undead drow she bought forth to help her regain her
immortality. The staff was to help slay Lloth and banish her to the void
she had emerged from. In an ugly twist of fate the drows of today stole the
staff and gave it to Lloth assuring her existance and reign of terror...
Cardania now sits under the evil watch of Lloth, stronger, meaner and more
bitter then ever before.
