Khyber cultist have been a growing, if not frequently acknowledged, issue over the last several decades. Composed of various sects and individuals who secretly pledge themselves to demons and aberrations born or exiled long ago in the belly of the Dragon Below, worshipers pursue mad goals or destructive plots to maintain bargains with being beyond mortal comprehension. Tainted morals that seek to serve and draw power from the origins of evil itself, cultists often have access (and perhaps have been enslaved by) ancient arcane sources of power or have been born into families that long pledged eternal service to imprisoned masters. Some of the oldest cults date back thousands of years to the Age of Monsters, when aberrations from beyond enslaved portions of the great goblin empire of the time. Bloodlines devoted to dark masters have endured through the ages, growing in power, though members are in turn laced with physical and mental corruption. While older cults gradually work toward grade schemes by orchestrating enigmatic plots on a huge scale, offshoot cults and corrupted individuals can twist and torture whole communities while seeking lore or to appease their madness. Given the origins of their different doctrines and orders, the goals or actions of cultists are often simply unfathomable to most mortals. The only thing that can be certain is that the end accomplishment is abhorrent in nature.
