Background[]

Nhimbaloth (AKA The Empty Death) is the Outer God of ghosts, swamps, and despair. This Outer God hunts those who prey on souls, digesting both the predator and prey. Souls which are consumed by her never make it to the afterlife: their fate is oblivion. Nhimbaloth has no form but her passage is thought to be revealed by telltale marks.

The most obvious of these telltale marks is a cluster of seven impeccably positioned sods of crumbling soil on shores, which are thought to be her fingerprints. In any place she has visited local wildlife becomes unusually antagonistic and faceless undead ones haunt the area.
