Golgoloth are titanic sized humanoid monsters summoned to Eletreus from another dimension by only the most powerful overtier magics. To date, only three Golgoloth have ever successfully been summoned – two by the first DeathKnight, and the last one accidentally by the archmages of Notarikon a few years after the cataclysmic wars, of which the last one broke free of the arch mages control and very nearly brought down the magical city itself..
Strong almost beyond human comprehension and immune to all but the most powerful weapons and magic, by nature Golgoloth are violent, malicious beings who delight in the destruction and havok their leave in their wake. Each one is unique, with its own special powers and abilities. Some can breathe fire or ice, create storms or earthquakes powerful enough to level a fortress while others – such as the Golgoloth that destroyed Notarikon, can even create and/or summon their own powerful minions.
While only the first DeathKnight was able to master controlling these willful monstrosities, it is believed, but not proven – that killing the summoner will banish the creatures back to the plane where they came from as was the case with the second Golgoloth, which was the largest and most powerful ever summoned and was only stopped because the Paragon was able to slay the DeathKnight during the last days of the Cataclysmic Wars.
While their powers vary, they are essentially god like in their power and influence – and it is very fortunate thing that the ritual to summon them from their dark and ruined world is almost impossibly difficult, for each of the three summoned Golgoloth were only barely stopped from an uncontrolled rampage of destruction across the world on a scale that defies imagination..
In all cases, the summoning ritual must be focused on the deepest ocean, for the dimensional gate that they use to enter the world forms from a deep sea whirlpool – from where the giant slowly reveals itself as it walks the ocean floor and begins to tower above the shoreline.. As such, Golgoloth do not appear to need to breathe, and are immune to extreme heat and extreme cold..
