    PostForum: World of Greyhawk Discussion   Posted: Wed Oct 07, 2020 1:30 pm   Subject: Re: Imprisoned Gods
    Outside of the various imprisoned gods in Castle Greyhawk, do we have many other imprisoned deity-level figures in Oerth?



    I'm not sure if there is a definitive list, but excluding Zagig's 9 and ...

    If Sewarndt was 25 in the Marklands, he would have been 10-12 when the Lorinar sisters were assassinated. And, he's Neutral, not evil.
