Vecna is the evil god of undead, necromancy, and secrets. He rules that which is not meant to be known and that which people wish to keep secret. Evil spellcasters and conspirators pay him homage.
It is Vecna that has sought to reach out and touch the mortal realm. Through his corrupting influence, the Cult of Secrets came into being. Vecna was the one who gave their clerics the ability to raise undead, and it was he who spawned Aggennon the Unveiler. While none of the gods have the ability to directly affect the mortal realms, Vecna has been the only one creating spawns and avatars to serve his purposes.
He commands his followers to:
- Never reveal all you know.
- Find the seed of darkness in your heart and nourish it; find it in others and exploit it to your advantage.
- Oppose the followers of all other deities so that Vecna alone can rule the world.
