The Faceless Mage is a demigod who ascended to Lord Boccob's side between 450-927 years ago. As a mortal, he was best known for inventing new spells, pulling annoying (but harmless) practical jokes with magic, and being downright deadly in combat (gestalt wizard/rouge). Even as a demigod, he continues to pull pranks, much to the annoyance of the other residents of Lord Boccob's Tower. New spells created by him occasionally trickle to the hands of mortals on the material plane, though some three-quarters are illusion and none are ever evocation or abjuration.
Pull funny but HARMLESS practical jokes now and then, invent new spells, and carry a big stick for when you annoy the wrong gang leader or assassins guild.
Clergy and Temples
Temples to the Faceless Mage are few and far between. It is far more common to find a shrine next to Lord Boccob's shrine in a wizard's tower than an actual temple. Also, most of The Faceless Mage's clerical followers multiclass at least a bit as wizards or rouges (or both).
The Faceless Mage is a minor deity of the DarthPantheon pantheon. He is one of Lord Boccob's underlings, and continues to idolize him today.
