There are two conflicting views on Kazgoroth and both sources are by the same author so this could be a misinterpretation, a mistake, or perhaps a retcon. I have the exact reference in favor of Malar so I'm putting that one in until someone can convincingly argue otherwise. The Moonshae (sourcebook) says that Kazgoroth called up the firbolgs to destroy the Balance, a chaotic evil act which fits in well with Malar's portfolio. Bhaal on the other hand is lawful evil and prefers assassinations and ritual killings. Moviesign 05:11, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

Movie, hmmm the Heroes' Lorebook page 125 says Bhaal, but the Hall of Heroes says Malar on page 80??? So I cannot help :( Darkwynters 05:24, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
Check out the Villains' Lorebook page 72-74... huge info :) Darkwynters 05:27, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for checking your sources. Sadly I don't have the Villains's Lorebook. Moviesign 05:31, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
This is bizarre. Niles wrote Darkwalker on Moonshae, which he actually quotes in the sourcebook, Moonshae, which he also wrote! So why does he describe Kazgoroth as an aspect of Malar in the latter? Villains' Lorebook clearly identifies Kaz as a minion of Bhaal, with no reference to Malar.Vreejack (talk) 15:05, February 23, 2016 (UTC)
Hall of Heroes claims "avatar of Bhaal" on p. 67. "Bhaal knew his avatar, Kazgaroth, sought the dominion of [Corwell]..." Vreejack (talk) 15:27, February 23, 2016 (UTC)
Alot of these earlier sourcebooks suffer from conflicting info and other errors. Heck, the back cover page of The Bloodstone Lands (sourcebook) says its the setting for the Icewind Dale trilogy... Artemaz (talk) 17:39, February 23, 2016 (UTC)
Hall of Heroes says Malar, but just quotes Moonshae, so I cannot consider it a separate source. All of this might be symptomatic of TSR's self-inflicted stupidity but these contradictory claims were made by the same person in a way that make it seem as if he knew what he was talking about.Vreejack (talk) 17:00, February 23, 2016 (UTC)
Aaaaaand...the article's name is spelled incorrectly. It's Kazgaroth.Vreejack (talk) 17:10, February 23, 2016 (UTC)
I just renamed the page correctly and fixed the text in the article. Artemaz (talk) 17:44, February 23, 2016 (UTC)

The Everwinking Eye article in Polyhedron 75 corrects all instances of FR2's association between Kaz and Malar to be between Kaz and Bhaal, instead. My guess is that, since Polyhedron is kind of on the fringes of the FR archive, this errata was overlooked when writing Backdrop: Moonshae Isles, though it is of course possible that it's been disregarded as part of 4E's policy of cutting down the pantheon. — Look-a-troopa (talk) 15:19, December 29, 2019 (UTC)
