Incabulos is the Oerthian god of plagues, sickness, famine, nightmares, drought, and disasters. Despite the similarity of their names, he has no connection to the Incunabulum race.


Long ago, Incabulos cursed a tribe of hill giants, turning them into rot giants by giving them a rotting disease that left them in constant agony.


Incabulos appears garbed in a black robe lined with orange and green, carrying a staff. He has a deformed body, skeletal hands, a nightmarish visage, and eyes that give nightmares to any who look at them directly. He rides atop a nightmare, and is accompanied by a group of hags.


The suffering of the world is meat and bread to Incabulos. Sickness, famine, and other curses bring him power. Some feel that the Black Rider can be warded off or appeased by prayers; but this only delays the inevitable. The world of dreams is his battleground, and he wages war against minds just as he rots bodies.
