"Join my hungry children or feed them!"

This chamber is the lair of Mother Thrunefang, the lacedon cleric who was Nylithati in life, and who served aboard the Thrune’s Fang as a priest and agent of the House of Thrune so many decades ago. Today, that life is all but forgotten to the hideous creature, who now appears as a gaunt, green-skinned woman with long ears, a pointed tongue, and rotten flesh. She wears tattered rags, and a small snake’s skull on a thong of hair about her neck—her holy symbol.

Nylithati does not attack intruders on sight—instead, impressed with their persistence, she offers them life beyond death—she’ll bite them and infect them with ghoul fever, and then let them languish in the cavern of unbirth (area V20) until they die and are reborn as her newest children. Any who refuse her hideous offer are only fit for food.

Before Combat

Nylithati casts shield of faith on herself if she can before entering combat or responding to the sounds of battle in area V27.

During Combat

Nylithati opens combat by casting darkness. She then lurks in the darkness while she casts spiritual weapon, cause fear, and finally divine favor before attacking.
