Nomog-Geaya was the hobgoblin deity of war and authority.[3]

Physical descriptionEdit

The god appeared as a huge, powerful goblin with rough, ash-gray skin, cold orange eyes, and teeth like a shark's.[3]


As a commanding figure, Nomog-Geaya was said to have no expressions other than a grim, tight-lipped look of domineering authority. He was quiet and only spoke when he must.[3]


The hobgoblin deity fought with a +3 wounding broadsword in one hand, and his +2 handaxe, which bore a symbol of pain, in the other.[3]


Maglubiyet allowed Nomog-Geaya and Khurgorbaeyag to live in his realm of Clangor on the plane of Acheron to better keep an eye on them.[citation needed]


Nomog-Geaya was subservient to Maglubiyet, and detested Bargrivyek, the hobgoblin deity of territory.[3]


As patron deity of hobgoblins, he was second only to Maglubiyet in hobgoblin religion and his symbol was a crossed broadsword and handaxe.[3]


Circa −3400, hobgoblins and their dwarven slaves constructed a gigantic statue to Nomog-Geaya, in the Gorge of Nomog-Geaya the Warrior, at the mouth of the River Ith. The gorge became a gathering place for hobgoblin tribes for three centuries.[4][5] The idol was destroyed in −1931 DR by Calishite armies.[6]
