The Stockwood Scrolls
The Maiden of Pain, the Willing Whip, the Patron of Torturers
Symbol: Nine-tailed barbed scourge
Alignment: Lawful evil
Favoured Weapon: “Painbringer” (scourge)
Loviatar (loh-vee-a-tar), the goddess of pain, suffering, and torture, is lawful evil. She is a cruel and sadistic deity, and enjoys nothing more than the agonized screams of those she torments. Torturers and those who derive perverse enjoyment in inflicting pain on others worship her. Her followers believe that pain is the ultimate truth and the greatest pleasure—in both giving and receiving. She and her followers despise Ilmater and his worshipers, and they hate them all the more because they refuse to scream satisfyingly while being tortured.
