Description

Ralishaz's appearance constantly shifts and changes, one moment beautiful the next hideous, one moment male the next female, or any other such combination of opposites.

Relationships

Ralishaz is allied with Kurell, despised by Norebo, and opposed by Rudd.

Ralishaz shuns the other gods, although he doesn't appear to harbor any particular hatred for any one of them.

Realm

Ralishaz's realm is located in Limbo and is called the Kiss of Luck.

Worshipers

Ralishaz's church is most prevalent in Ull and the Bandit Kingdoms.

Clergy

Ralishaz's clerics tend to display both fatalism and stoicism, mixed with recklessness and wild endeavor. They see little point in being kind to anyone, since the person will eventually be cursed with bad luck.

Rituals

Worship services to Ralishaz include playing semi-random notes on musical instruments, babbling paeans, casting augury spells, and wild interplays of complete opposites; light and darkness, heat and cold, noise and quiet.
