Itemean'p (Itemeneb, Idman-p, All-Killer, Lord Carnage) is a God of war and devastion, and his war is definitly not of the kind that is "just", actually not even morally ambigous. Marauding hordes of pillagers, ever growing hate between the parties, horrible fates of those falling into the enemies' hands, suffering for complete people - this is what Itemean'p is about. Therefore, he is not seldomly worshipped in any culture that has retained any degree of sanity or known about his true nature- but a war fought too intense is not always good for sanity, and many can be retionalised and dismissed as propaganda of divine rivals or simple myth. Most descriptions of All-Killer attribute to him a size of miles, if not even larger. He is said to be entirely covered by an bizarre armour that on a closer look turns out to consist of bones, gore, cinders, scorched earth and genocidal curses. Romours tell that the remains of everything and everyone destroyed by war is integrated into the god, which adds an even more disturbing note to the inconsistent size. Itemean'p attacks, if these stories are to be believed, by simply squashing his enemies with his titanic body and nigh infinite strength.
War is necessary- this is what is generally known about the idiology of Iemeneb. But as a war grows more brutal, more and more the popular opinion resembles what can be seen as his aims for a moment- they are all evil fiends that do not count, the whole nation, or race, even the civilians and childrens, and deserve to be entirely exterminated, even better if it happens in a cruel way. In such an athmosphere, actual worshippers of Itemean'p can crop out, often even furthering the genocidal hatred. Of course, Lord Carnage is not actually interested in the nations waging these wars- actually, he desires the above on a cosmic scale, and preferres mutual destruction and endless wars.
Clergy and Temples
In most cultures Idman-b is only worshipped to avert his wrath and to get fortune in necessary wars. Even very warlike do only pray to him as a god of simply war, not the god of all-consuming hatred and mutual destruction. The few beings that know his true agenda and still (or even therefore) serve him are exclusively either completely deranged or evil by origin themselves (if not both).
Itemean'p is enemy of quite every other god he knows about, and vice versa. However, his hatred is often the greatest for other gods of war and destruction: What war can be more destructive than ones between war itself? These wars usually do not aim for the end of the other god, as it would probably reduce the emout of war. An strange relationship exists between Itemean'p and Grkafsldewa. They are surprisingly neutral to each other, and there seems to be something like kind of crunching respect and an involuntary fascinations for the other's atrocities between Lord Carnage and Cruelty Incarnate.
