Beshaba (pronounced be-SHAH-ba), or Lady Doom as she is also known, is the chaotic evil intermediate deity of accidents, bad luck, misfortune, and random mischief. She demands worship to keep her bad luck at bay. Her aim in life, is to desiccate and disintegrate her sister Tymora, or Lady Luck. She also delights in cursing others, often causing seafarers to lose their navigational instincts.
Beshaba is revered more out of fear, than out of religious faith. Her doctrine states that bad luck befalls everybody and the only way to avoid it is by worshiping her. She is renowned for being spiteful and malevolent, and her priests manipulate common folk into revering and providing for them by acting mysteriously and playing on morbid fears. Her clerics must offer an entreaty for their spells and make sacrifices of alcoholic beverages such as burning brandy or wine. There are two festivals in the calendar of Beshaba followers at Midsummer and Shieldmeet. Both are celebrated by revelry and indulgence in food and drink.
