Sha-Hec'Urah The Demon

Post by Havard » Sun Apr 22, 2018 3:10 pm

There is a reference to Sha-Hec'Urah in Dungeon Geomorphs 3 by Gary Gygax:
Dungeon Geomorphs 3 wrote:7B. The Altar of the demon Sha-Hec'urah, set with fifty base 100 GP gems. There is a
pit trap (10' deep, with six poisoned spikes) before it, with the cover trip
mechanism to lock, unlock, or spring it hidden in a recess in a wall at the spot
marked X. Touching the altar automatically alters 7C (below).
Do any other products detail this demon? Is he considered part of Greyhawk lore?

No appearance in Jason Zavoda's Greyhawk index, Havard. I don't believe that the encounters from the Dungeon Geomorphs originated from Castle Greyhawk, but were instead created for those publications. (The Walled City Outdoor Geomorphs are the exception here, since they explicitly mention Greyhawk names/locations).

So, that leaves Sha-Hec'urah free for you to play with to your heart's content :D

I would probably just assume that this is an alternate name for one of the more famous demon lords. Fraaz-Urblu feels appropriate.

This is more of a random thought than anything, but Zegadur the Ancient in CZ Upper Works immediately reminded me of the old holy man/insane fiend in Dungeon Geomorphs.

I've never found any real connections between Dungeon Geomorphs and Greyhawk canon, however.
