Beshaba is worshipped largely out of fear, and it is the task of her clergy
to spread that fear by starting talk of Beshaba's power and latest wickedness
and by instructing all in how to make offerings to her or in how to join her
clergy if they would prefer to be protected from all misfortune. Along the
way, members of her clergy take care to indulge their tastes for random
cruelty and sadism. They enjoy acting mysteriously to manipulate simpler folk
into serving them in matters both great and small; from providing them with
food, luxurious shelter, and companionship to giving them weapons to wield
against their rivals in the Church of Beshaba and against the clergy of other
faiths.

Followers of Beshaba may use their high favor to supplicate (see help
supplicate) for recall to a safe haven and resurrection. If they are
extremely holy, they may ask for and receive artifacts of Beshaba.

Beshaba has a specialist assassin order called the "Black Fingers". This
order is made up of only males; comprising priests, rogues, and warriors.
