Tower of Ruin

A power of domination and destruction, Talos brought three other evil deities into his fold by sheer force: Umberlee (the Bitch Queen of oceans), Malar (the Beastlord of savage hunts), and Auril (the Frostmaiden of cold winters). Together, the group's known as the Gods of Fury, and Talos keeps his charges under a tight rein.

The power's only purpose in life is to prove that he can tear down whatever some other blood puts up. Oddly, this occasionally puts him into conflict with the Vedic deity Siva. Though the Indian god is a power of destruction, he doesn't cause ruin for the pure joy of it, as Talos does.

See, Talos is like a spoiled child, roused to devastating anger by the smallest slights, and he can carry a grudge for centuries. It's a good thing his rages are limited by Faerunian deities like Chauntea, Lathander, Mystra, and Sune.

The Destroyer's realm is located on a hillock in the midst of Pandemonium. Winds howl around large, craggy twin towers, buffeting away those who'd disturb the power. The gales grow ever stronger the closer a body gets to the towers' shared entrance, until they're practically hurricane force.
