Lord of Nightmares (3.5e Deity)
From D&D Wiki
Lord of Nightmares
Hardly known to the mortal races (worshiped by even fewer) but known among the other deities as the mother of all!
"I am the mother of all darkness. I am the one who has dreamed for years uncounted of regaining my form. I am darkness beyond blackest pitch, deeper then the deepest night. I am the sea of chaos, the source of all chaos. That is how you describe me. I am the Lord of Nightmares."
Other names given it include: Lord of Dreams that Terrify; He Who Shines Like Gold upon the Sea of Chaos; and The Golden Lord
Clergy and Temples
Worshiping the Lord of Nightmares is impractical and, some say, downright dangerous. The Lord of Nightmares is a capricious god, whose motives are unfathomable. While a very lucky few have succeeded in (briefly) calling on the god's power, they have often done so at the risk of undoing creation. Sometimes, in payment for granting this boon, the Lord of Nightmares will steal the person away into its home dimension, from which they can never be retrieved short of through assistance by another overdeity or the personal efforts of one who loves the victim. Perhaps the only thing most likely to attract the Lord's attention is if one of the lesser gods...especially a lesser god of its own pantheon...blasphemies it or attempts to rise above it. That unfortunate god will often meet with a swift and painful end, along with most of that god's followers (unless the Lord of Nightmares is in a "good" mood).
