Through destruction of organisations, civilization and the hope and faith of other gods Agamos hopes to grow in power, his worshippers are expected to be working to bring down some group or settlement in one form or another, those who do this can expect his blessings.
True power lies in killing and destroying, it is the true way to show that one is strong and to prove one's worth to receive the blessing of Agamos. Rage, anger and revenge are all wonderful emotions to be fed and to be used to gain strength, weakness is to be destroyed and crushed without mercy, one day the total destruction of the whole world will hopefully be brought about and then those worthy followers of Agamos will truly be rewarded with god like powers and a seat by Agamos's side.
Clergy and Temples
Agamos, clergy are often quite organized if dispersed throughout the world. Agamos demands that his clergy give good treatment and aide to their fellow worshippers, often many of these worshippers are of humanoid races, goblins, orcs and bugbears for example often keep shrines to Agamos, although a fair few humans and demi-humans also worship Agamos-for he is generous in rewarding those who work towards furthering his goals.
His clergy are often warrior priests, and inspire others to go into battle to kill, destroy and bring down the civilized and good world around them. They are normally quite strong and tough individuals who have a habit of murdering their superiors and taking their place, for Agamos hates weakness among his own kind more than among his enemies.
Agamos's temples are often created underground to avoid the discovery by good aligned individuals, many are shrines in lairs of humanoids. Generally most cities outlaw the worship of such a god. His temples and clergy have a tendency to use black and reds in their temples as well as lots of art work involving death, and destruction, battlefields fields filled with corpses, or wastelands with burnt out buildings, are particularly popular.
