Decay is a High Lord of Chaos, the God and Incarnation of Decay.[2][3] Decay fought against the forces of Good during the First Battle; after the forces of Good were victorious, Decay was imprisoned in the Void with the other Dark Lords. However, Decay still has followers on the Earthly Plane, whom he assists in spreading suffering through the world.[4]


He is the brother of Death and the twin of Disease.[3] It is believed that he is the creation of Elim.


Lord of Decay

Decay is the patron of mould, and all that rots and perishes.[3] He is also known as "The Scavenger" and Urgulla. Decay's followers are known as the Acolytes of Decay.[5] His most notable centre of worship is in the southern part of Khul, in the city of Shakuru by the beggars and lepers of that foul place. There is also a temple to him near the city of Assur on the Inland Sea. [5] Many of the Khulian cults of Decay are composed of humans, led by a high priest of the Awkmute species. [6] The Gnoll race is also known to invocate Decay before a battle.[7] Priests of Decay have been gifted by their deity with the power to destroy wooden or metal items through magical corrosion.[3]


Commonly Decay appears as a rotting skeleton and he is associated with insects. His symbol is a skeletal hand or a Fly, and his sacred colour is Bone White.[3] Adventuring priests of Decay may be encountered throughout Titan.
