Roykyn the Merciless, is the hero-goddess of cruelty, especially cruel pranks, in Oerth.
Roykyn was once a cleric of Urdlen, but felt that her patron didn't reward her enough. So she abandoned her faith in him, and begun worshipping Erythnul, leaving her temple for a conclave of Illithids as a joke and an insult to Urdlen.
The greatest joy is in causing pain and suffering to others, whether in the spirit, mind, or body. Let no day pass without giving someone the kindness of a small cruel joke. Be merciless if you find someone who can be humbled with the proper act, for what makes us equal is our capacity for humiliation. The ability to harm another with an unkind word or deed is the greatest power, for cruelty is a tyrant that is always attended with fear. It is fed, not weakened, by tears, and upon the tears of your victims you will grow strong.
