 Vabamot, the Greedy One
Vabamot, the Greedy One, is an intermediate deity in the Fortress Celestia setting, and a planar lord worshipped by theives and others who seek to obtain or retain wealth, especially devils, dragons, dwarves, and gnomes.
"Greed is good" pretty much defines Vabamot's teachings. Vabamot teaches that the avaricious would be wise to be clever, cunning, patient, and secretive, and that theives should avoid stealing from their own people. Vabamot champions and seeks to defend dragons, dwarves, and gnomes - provided they do not fight for good, an act he regards as betrayal.
 Clergy and Temples
Vabamot's temples are found throughout the Barrens of Evil, and wherever those who seek his guidance are found, which is most of the multiverse. They are often hidden away where they will not draw much attention, and many are little more than small, but lavish, shrines hidden away where other creatures will not notice.

Vabamot was created for the Fortress Celestia setting, as the "evil genious" of the pantheon, but DM's are welcome to "borrow" this deity or any elements of this description for their own purposes.
 Roleplaying Notes
Vabamot appears in many forms. One legend even says that Vabamot considers his many forms to be another form of wealth and is constantly collecting new ones. He sometimes appears as a druergar with a long dark beard and hair and expensive clothes, a multiheaded dragon, or a human woman with very pale skin, long dark hair, and sorcerer's robes. Vabamot is a foul - tempered deity who is almost completely obsessed with wealth. He presumably has multiple homes in the lower planes, all well - defended and covered in the trappings of wealth, and at least one vast cavern whose floor is a literal sea of rare treasures.
