Prophecy: Hextor



Hextor is the deity of tyranny and is associated with war,
discord, massacres, conflict, and fitness. He is the eternal foe of
his half-brother Heironeous.

Hextor seeks to conquer or destroy any that oppose him. He tells
his followers that the world is a dark and bloody place where the
strong rule the weak, and power is the only reward worth anything.
The cruel and unrelenting pursuit of one’s goals is the only
reliable path to success. Order must be forged out of the chaos and
law out of anarchy. Tyranny brings order out of chaos. Dissenters
must be oppressed or destroyed lest anarchy reign.

Church Description

Hextor’s sect is not as secretive as other dark religions.
Temples of Hextor operate openly in many cities.

Hextor’s clerics constantly plan or lead attacks on rebles and
dogooders. They revile good-hearted rulers and governments that
nurture personal freedoms, and they are forever scheming to weaken
or otherthrow regimes that seem likely targets for conquest. When
not actually fighting or plotting, they train themselves in the
arts of war. Many serve as generals, military advisors, or
enforcers to aggressive rulers or iron-fisted tyrants.

Hextor’s clerics also oppose clerics of Heironeous wherever and
whenever they can.

Church Structure

Temples to Hextor are always forbidding fortresses, built to
impress the common folk with Hextor’s power. Many of this temples
are constructed on sites that have seen many great battles because
of their strategic value.
