Return to Windcliff
Umberlee (pronounced uhm-ber-LEE), also referred to as The Bitch Queen, is the evil sea goddess. She is most often worshiped by sailors or people traveling by sea, out of fear of her destructive powers. She controls the harshness of the sea while reveling in her own power and is not hesitant to drown people, if she so pleases.
The Church of Umberlee is disorganized, and different locales vary significantly in the way they practice faith in the Bitch Queen. Following Umberlee’s nature, inner disputes are usually resolved through dueling, and the strongest Umberlant prevails, while the other is thrown aboard the next ship to leave port.
Umberlant clerics can walk unmolested in almost every port and surrounding areas, and they are always welcomed aboard ships in hopes that their presence appease their furious goddess. They pray for spells at high tide (in the morning or the evening), while making offerings and self-anointing on the brow, hands and feet with sea water.
