- Tzxank (tscks-angk):
He is the son of Guygus and a powerful Nightmare from the Dream World. He serves His father out of fear and aides Him by using the power of the Dream World to corrode the minds of His victims and bring about insanity.
- Incarnation: At first glance, from a distance, he appears as an enormous Nightmare. However, as he thunders closer, it is revealed that he has eight great legs and his face is horribly twisted and full of fiery eyes. Jets of dark fire burst from his menacing nostrils. The ground is scorched and drained in his wake as he charged forward. Waves of fearsome phantoms escape from his body as he bellows.
- Special Ability: Bestow Nightmare Curse: Merely looking at Tzxank is enough to curse a mortal with permanent nightmares that slowly eat away at their sanity.
Tzxank teaches nothing to those who worship him. He only grants them power.
Clergy and Temples
Clerics of Tzxank are mad warriors driven by power and greed. They often ride into combat with lances. Sometimes they act as mercenaries, doing dirty work for the highest bidder, entirely welcome to disobey orders and burn and destroy as much as they can. They deceive and lie, murder and then raise the fallen as undead. These warriors also often lay praise to Guygus, who sired their monstrous lord.
