Mythos[edit]

Pure Tuath communities that still worship these gods are rarer than Elves in the Lands.

Abberations - such as aboleths, beholders, illithids, and the like - and their gods, are the mythical foes of the Elder Elemental Gods. In the myth circles of the Tuath, it was the struggle between the two that brought on the cataclysm that ended Tuath civilization (paving the way for the other races to dominate the Athernian peninsula).
