Nhimbaloth is an Outer God created by Paizo Inc for the Pathfinder RPG in 2016.


Nhimbaloth (aka, The Empty Death) is the Outer God of ghosts, swamps, and despair. Hunting 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 being clusters of seven impeccably positioned sods of crumbling soil on shores, which are thought to be her fingerprints. Any place she has visited, wildlife become unusually antagonistic and faceless undead haunt the area.
