Portals: Deities GeographyHistoryMagic

Bane (also known as the Black Hand and the Black Lord), is the god of hatred, fear, and tyranny. Bane is a Lawful Evil greater power whose symbol is green rays squeezed forth from a black fist. Bane prefers to keep to the shadows, allowing his servants to carry out his intricate plans. He has no tolerance for failure and seldom thinks twice about submitting even a loyal servant to rigorous tortures to ensure complete obedience to his demanding, regimented doctrine. Bane is one of the Gods of Darkness.
