ABOUT

All derro are corrupted and borderline insane, but the derro living in the bowels of the Scarlet Citadel are worse than most. They were driven out of their clan 150 years ago for carrying their worship of the demon lord of bats, to extremes not even their fellow derro could tolerate. The cult’s high priest led them until they discovered a cavern filled with monstrous bats, where they settled and carved out a temple to their foul deity.
