There are dieties who represent an alternative order of Law in its rawest,most orderly & most torturous. These dieties represent the planes before the great Schism. On a plane prime of Earth the lost city of Babel & its tower are cast into ruin & disorder. But the king of the devil world was insensed by this for it was echoed across the planes.But his linage ruled the Inferno long ago & shall again. The Romans knew of his cult in ancient times for he was counted & worshipped upon in the house of Nimrod;
"The Jewish-Roman historian Flavius Josephus, in his Antiquities of the Jews (c. 94 CE), recounted history as found in the Hebrew Bible and mentioned the Tower of Babel. He wrote that it was Nimrod who had the tower built and that Nimrod was a tyrant who tried to turn the people away from God. In this account, God confused the people rather than destroying them because annihilation with a Flood had not taught them to be godly.
The Babel pantheon was destroyed along with its tower leaving the last vestiges of the cult of Druaga to fester in the desert sands. Or so it was hoped. There were those high priests of Druaga who had been smuggled out of the city before the tower's apocalyptic destruction. These priests were smuggled out by the proto Silent Ones deep into the bowels of the Earth for they were some of the last beings who spoke the occult language of Alko. They knew the deepest inner secrets of the cult of Druaga including the merging of human & devil flesh, the creation of the temple towers of infernal power, the summoning of the most dire of the lords of infernal order, & the final secrets of power for the lords of stability on Earth.
The Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1563)
The cult of Druaga continues to operate in secret across the planes behind the scenes arranging an assassination here, corrupting government officials there, adding in powerful members into its outter cell's ranks, & building a power structure only to utterly destroy it later on. The final lesson of the cult of Druaga is that law in its rawest & most terrifying is that the stablity of static is utter destruction. The blade of the knife & the silence of the grave is what makes way for the next cycle of order & law. When the cult of Druaga makes itself know it will be integrated into a society at the highest levels of rulership. The subtle & infernal corruption will start from within with officials of office & integrate down to the lowest ranks of society usually within an orderly 2 to 20 years. These numbers being significant to the cult.
When the 'towers of summoning' that belong to the cult of Druaga are erected it is always a bad sign. There will always be 1d20 minor devils or 1d6 cambion priests around these temples of the infernal.
Anti paladins & clerics are recruited from the lowest straits of life & given purpose within the order appearing as members of law, teachers, priests, judges, etc. A miniature of cult of Druaga ruby rod is often used as sign to members placed upon the person of high ranking member of his cult. It is visible to other members of the cult for easy identification.
Druaga rules a giant palace in Hell within its walls are an endless maze of corridors & changing temple complexes within which the souls of his worshipers are what make up the entire place. They are held rigidly within the heirachery of their place suffering incredible tortures & pain within. Their suffering feeds the cult over the centuries. These damned are often used to be consulted on by many inner members of the cult. Druaga does not have anything to do with the ruling of Hell or so it seems. According to some sources he is regularly consulted by Asmodeus on a semi regular basis. Druaga moves behind the scenes of Hell & the Inferno as a power behind the infernal thrones. And is not ever to be underestimated.
