Beneath the Borderlands
The Iron God is a minor, Neutral underworld deity who guards the spirits and bodies of the dead. Now largely forgotten, he had an active cult in the Bonewater Vale for hundreds of years, centered around a monastery in the southernmost Yellowback Hills. The monastery no longer stands, but the Iron God said to still guard the dead entrusted to him in the catacombs located beneath their ruins (see the Tomb of the Iron God). He is always depicted holding an iron torc (his holy symbol) and throttling a serpent, a representation of his adversary known as the Eater of the Dead.
