The most famous of Zamoran gods is Zath, the spider-god of Yezud. Zath's worhippers believe that the great spider-god walks the earth and must be served by humankind. Priests of Zath do not drink alcohol or fornicate, and those laymen in the service of the temple must also abide by this. Closely guarded are the temple virgins, who dance for Zath on holy days. There are rumours of extensive caverns beneath the temple, where hundreds of giant spiders reside, feeding on cattle (and occasionally humans) by the priests of Zath. If you can recall, Conan ended up slaying Zath in the novel, Conan and the Spider God.
Zath's worshippers believe that the great spider-god walks the earth, and must be served by humankind. Indeed, the giant spiders which have occasionally been seen in the hills near Yezud are testaments to Zath's power.
In the temple of Yezud, the priests of Zath worship an enormous statue of the spider god. It is said that eight huge gems form its eyes.
Zath is a god of darkness, spiders and poison. Priests of Zath are assassins, madmen and spies.
