White Hands, the Lord of Maggots, the Rotting One
Symbol: White hands on a dark background
Alignment: Neutral evil
Portfolio: Death and disease
Favoured Weapon: Pale white hands (unarmed strike)
Yurtrus (yur-truss), the orc god of death and disease, is neutral evil. He is a disgusting creature which possesses no mouth and whose diseased skin (save on his chalk-white hands) is peeling and rotting off. He is feared more than worshiped by the orcs; who live in terror of both the plagues he periodically sends to ravage them and the grim finality of death he sends in the end to all, even the most powerful. His worshipers are those who bring, worship, or profit from death, especially assassins.
