The world issued from Chaos, who has no purpose or grand plan for it. Mortals have no souls. The flesh is all that matters. Death is a gate to oblivion. The gods of Good delude their worshipers with promises of life after death to enslave them. Service to Chemosh is rewarded with true everlasting life.
Chemosh, also known as the Lord of Bones, Lifebane, and the Black Goat, represents the godly force of fatalism. He encourages souls to give up to destiny and fate. Chemosh disdains life, feeling that it is wasted on the people of Krynn. He prefers to promise "immortality" by making souls into undead rather than letting them pass into the afterlife. Chemosh gains power as people surrender their free will to him. Chemosh sits in the Hall of Soul's Passing and watches the progression of souls into the afterlife, where he attempts to lure souls into becoming undead. Chemosh is the direct opposite of Mishakal as she promotes life and hope. He is the foe of all of the Gods of Good, and among the Gods of Neutrality is in opposition to Chislev, for disrupting the natural order of life, and Sirrion, for suppressing hope and creativity. He has few allies but sometimes works with Hiddukel and Morgion due to the nature of his schemes. His celestial symbol is the constellation Goat's Skull.
Patron of all undead, and influences all that have died upon the face of Krynn. He recruit corpses to do his bidding, and thus increases his strength. His colors are e Black and a sickly Yellow. His avatar form is human man in a black robe, or a litch in fine rotting clothes. His favored weapon is a small obsidian sickle which directs him to his target with the fullest life force.
Works with his Queen and raises leaders for her armies on Ansolan. He strives to corrupt all living beings, and will recruit with false promises of immortality. His worshipers generally wear masks of skulls and black robes.
