Anyone who worships this god is said to have the most vile of powers and the ability to read minds. The followers of Operatos were known as the "Harbingers". They would steal sleeping villagers and sacrifice there souls to the deity in return for there safety and well being. However, one day a group of paladins on a quest destroyed the dark sanctuary belonging to Operatos and his followers. For this he punished the worshippers for there failure and turned them into trees for his ever growing dark garden. The deity is fond of the forest and created his plane of existence "Foragmas" to mimic such places.
