Kuo-toas live in the Underdark, where they worship dark gods and work toward sinister ends, seeing themselves as superior to all other humanoids. They are at home in water and on land, so they can be encountered in dry caverns as well as subterranean bodies of water. On the edge of underground lakes or seas, kuo-toas build settlements around their shrines. Within these places, priests called whips make up the top caste of kuo-toa society. Kuo-toa monitors are the whips’ agents as well as an elite warrior force that keeps lower ranking kuo-toas in line. Madness taints kuo-toa civilization, and it can spread through a kuo-toa settlement like a disease. The mental disciplines practiced by whips and monitors often protect them from lunacy, but kuo-toa leaders must carefully control and watch the common populace. This madness has caused some kuo-toa communities to disintegrate, leaving behind ruins populated by mad kuo-toas and wandering monsters.

Playing a Kuo Toa[edit]

Kuo-Toas are loathsome fish-people who live in the black seas of the Underdark, building great temples to alien gods. They regard all other races as potential slaves or sacrifices. Kuo-toas range from their settlements to acquire slaves for themselves and sacrifices for their aboleth “gods.” Some kuo-toas escape their depraved society to become slaves, mercenaries, or even leaders among other Underdark races.

Kuo Toa Adventurers[edit]

Three sample Kuo Toa adventurers are described below.

Apzen is a Kuo-Toa fighter, she rules her own clan of Kuo-Toa, after having an argument with her mother and slaughtering her original clan. The only one she kept alive was an old woman named Usjalil pab, she is Apzen's adviser and assistant, as well as an assassin. Apzen thinks the old woman has secretly turned the whole clan against her, and she needs to get away. After six years of searching, she has found a group of adventurers who think like she, fight first, ask questions later.

Rhultirar is a Kuo-Toa cleric, he is one of the few Kuo-Toas who is actually good. When he was an infant, he watched his parents brutally murdered by the leader of his clan, since then, he decided that he would only fight in the name of Kord, only for good. Though he tries to stay on a light path, sometimes it is hard for him to resist his ferocious nature.
