Blibdoolpoolp is the deity worshipped by the kuo-toa race. She is also known as the "Sea Mother."
Blibdoolpoolp usually takes the form of a 20-foot tall nude human female, with a lobster's head and claws in place of humanoid parts. At close range, her gaze causes insanity.
Blibdoolpoolp's realm is called "The Murky Depths," and is located on the Elemental Plane of Water.
Blibdoolpoolp is worshiped chiefly by kuo-toa. It's been suggested that the froglike mother goddess worshiped by the grippli may be a more benign aspect of Blibdoolpoolp.
Priests of the Sea Mother are called "whips" and wear pearl-colored vestments, shell helms, and drape themselves in nets as part of ceremonies.
Holy days, temples, and rituals
Blibdoolpoolp's holy day is the new moon, and rituals are held in underwater shrines. Gems, pearls, humans, and lobsters (her sacred animal) are sacrificed to her monthly.
