Abhoth[1] is the Outer God of disease, fecundity, and oozes.[2]


Abhoth appears as a massive ooze whose eyes, mouths, organs, and pseudopods constantly form and are consumed.[2]


Abhoth dwells in a grotto connected to the deepest forgotten or undiscovered underground caverns of many planets.[2]


Oozes constantly form and slough off from Abhoth's bulk. Abhoth's pseudopods grasp many offspring and reabsorb them into its mass, but some manage to escape and find portals from Abhoth's lair to the caverns in other worlds. These spawn can spawn races of their own, and through them Abhoth can see, explore, and infect any world they touch.[2]

Worshipers and clergy

According to Abhoth's cultists, all life in the Material Plane is descended from it.[2]

On Golarion

Cerain remote tunnels in the Darklands connect to the cavern where Abhoth dwells. One such tunnel is located in the Midnight Mountains in Orv, where the Primal Mouth, one of Abhoth's most powerful spawn, resides with its gug minions.[3]
