Geb

To Egyptian Gods

Following their creation by Ra, Shu and Tefnut produced numerous offspring. The first of these was Geb, who became the earth. Geb was so enraptured with his sister, Nut (the sky), that they instantly embraced. After they had produced four children of their own (Isis, Set, Osiris, and Nephythys), Ra instructed Shu to break up the embrace.

Geb was once a curious and quick tempered god, but he has mellowed and now takes a more even-tempered (and safe) approach to life. Geb's true form is that of a huge man with dark brown skin and burning eyes. He always wears a golden crown as a symbol of his divine power.

Duties of the Priesthood

Priests of Geb are friends of the earth. They have much in common with dwarves in that they love deep caverns and the splendors of mighty mountain ranges

Geb is the god of the earth, son of Shu (the god of air) and Tefnut (the goddess of water); he is also brother and husband of Nut, and father of Osiris, Set, Isis, and Nephthys. He appears as a man with green skin (indicative of his role as a god of fertility and vegetation) or black skin (the color of the fertile Nile mud). Geb imprisons the souls of the wicked, so that they cannot pass on to the afterlife. His laughter is said to cause earthquakes.

Staff of Earthly Might

This six-foot-long staff was crafted from a single piece of petrified oak and crowned with a large ruby diadem. There are no markings along the shaft that would indicate its function.

It is a +5 bane (air creatures)/defending/disruption weapon.

The Staff of Earthly Might has the following properties:

•The wielder can turn or destroy air creatures as a good cleric turns undead and rebuke or command earth creatures as an evil cleric rebukes undead. (As a 20 th level cleric)

•At will, the wielder may touch the end of the staff to any rock or boulder (up to 50lbs.) and launch it as if it were thrown by a giant. Maximum range is 180ft. with no range penalties. Boulders do 2d6+9 points of damage.

•The wielder may cast the following spells at will; entangle, soften earth and stone, plant growth, stone shape and meld into stone.

Control plants 5/day.

Freedom of movement 5/day.

Imprisonment 5/day.

Shambler 5/day.

Earthquake 3/day.

Trap the soul 3/day.

All spells are equal in effect to those cast by a 20 th level cleric.
