Abhoth[1] is the Outer God of disease, fecundity, and oozes.[2]

Appearance

Abhoth appears as a massive ooze whose eyes, mouths, organs, and pseudopods constantly form and are consumed.[2]

Realm

Abhoth dwells in a grotto connected to the deepest forgotten or undiscovered underground caverns of many planets.[2]

Servants

Oozes constantly form and slough off from Abhoth's bulk. Abhoth's pseudopods grasp many offspring and reabsorb them into its mass, but some manage to escape and find portals from Abhoth's lair to the caverns in other worlds. These spawn can spawn races of their own, and through them Abhoth can see, explore, and infect any world they touch.[2]

Worshipers and clergy

According to Abhoth's cultists, all life in the Material Plane is descended from it.[2]
