Publication history[edit]

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition (1989-1999)[edit]

Hakiyah was introduced in the Al-Qadim: Land of Fate set (1992).[1]

Description[edit]

In the lands of Zakhara Hakiyah is worshiped as the goddess of truth. She is one of the eight Great Gods of the Land of Fate and preaches the value of honesty and calm examination of the truth. Hakiyah's symbol is a cresting wave.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 48

When she appears as a human she wears the garb of a city-dweller and guides those around her with the calm voice of reason.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 48 Like other Zakharan gods she is above such concerns as alignment, as truth may be used by a judge to right the wronged or by an evil schemer to bring down his enemies.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 45

Hakiyah's worshipers value meditation and methodical, rationalized actions. She counts many merchants among them, especially in the Cities of the Pearl. In the Pantheist League, however, her faith is persecuted.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 48
