Publication history[edit]

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

Ibrandul is first mentioned in the 2nd edition boxed Ruins of Undermountain (1991) by Ed Greenwood.[1] Ibrandul is further detailed in Faiths & Avatars (1996).[2]

His role in the cosmology of the Planescape campaign setting was described in On Hallowed Ground (1996).[3]

Dungeons & Dragons 3rd edition (2000-2007)[edit]

Ibrandul's ongoing worship is described in Lost Empires of Faerûn (2005).[5]

Description[edit]

Ibrandul was worshiped as a deity with power over the underground, darkness and stealth by the Calishites. He is now considered a "Dead" Deity due to the actions of Shar during the Time of Troubles, but this is not widely known and churches of Ibrandul still operate in the mistaken belief their God's power still holds. Shar has been known to impersonate Ibrandul, subverting Ibranduls' followers for her own dark deeds.
