Skull & Shackles
The ruins known as Ganagsau are home to the most devout kuru of the Cannibal Isles, as it is also the location of their so-called deity, the Blood Queen. An outsider being of astounding power and evil, the Blood Queen claims to be a servant of the long-forgotten gods of ancient Ghol-Gan, marooned on the islands when the empire that venerated those vile deities collapsed in on itself. When the kuru were forced onto the Cannibal Isles, it convinced the kuru that it was a god, and transformed them into primitive monsters. It now rules the kuru through telepathy and dark magic, dwelling in a half-flooded underground temple known as the Sanguine Cathedral. Though its massive size keeps it constrained to a single chamber within the Sanguine Cathedral, the Blood Queen’s influence spreads as far as its followers, and through the kuru it wreaks havoc all across the Cannibal Isles, as well as anywhere else it can manage. The Blood Queen’s current high priest is Bukrugsor, and is the intermediary between the scattered kuru and their voracious “goddess,” making demands for live human sacrifices and other acts of repugnant devotion.
