The Whisperer in the Darkness is an evil deity that resides somewhere in the Far Realm, his name is believed to be over 10,000 letters long and is completely unpronounceable to every creature in existence. He never shows his true form, for to see it would drive even the most iron-willed person into complete madness. He only communicates in whispers, thus earning his name.
The Whisperer in the Darkness encourages his devotees to search for knowledge about magic and of the mind long since forgotten and to share such knowledge only with him.
Despite his cultists not knowing exactly what his goals are, The Whisperer in the Darkness requires them to destroy those that worship Mak Thuum Ngatha, the Nine-Tongued Worm. The reason for this destruction is unknown as he does not tell anyone his own secrets.
Clergy and Temples
The Whisperer in the Darkness has very few temples in the world, those that exist hide inside the ruins of cities long since abandoned, those temples have large libraries filled with books and manuscripts of much forbidden lore. His clergy are mostly clerics seeking dark knowledge and alienists seeking to bring The Whisperer in the Darkness to the Material Plane in the hopes to be faithfully rewarded for their worship.
