    Thanks for your comments and interesting ideas. There's a scene in the novel [i]Artifact of Evil[/i] where Anthraxus appears before the Hierarchs to bring a message from Nerull, and a "faerie ring" of mushrooms appears around his feet, an ominous sign that Zuggtmoy's power is active even there in the heart of the Horned Society's power. The coup against Anthraxus by Mydianchlarus is mentioned in [i]Faces of Evil[/i], [i]Hellbound: The Blood War[/i], and the 3rd edition [i]Manual of the Planes[/i], and [i]The Scarlet Brotherhood[/i] mentions Mydianchlarus as the current Oinoloth. However, the idea that Zuggtmoy and Iggwilv actually slew Anthraxus that day is purely my own. The details of how Mydianchlarus unseated Anthraxus from his throne are left vague in canon; it was my idea to connect it to the massacre of the Hierarchs. This connection is not canonical.
