Crom was a Tuatha de Danaan (later known as Celtic gods).[4]

Pre-Cataclysmic Age

Over 21,000 years ago, the new god Crom led a shaman to three iron-bound books of magic, which the shaman used to imprison Shuma-Gorath in what would become Mount Crom in Cimmeria.[7]

Hyborian Age

Crom became a god worshiped by the Cimmerians. His subordinates included Morrigan, Father Lir and Mannanan.[2]

  • Crom does not meddle in mortal affairs,[8] doesn't care for his followers away from Cimmeria,[9] and doesn't need prayers[10].[9]
  • A Cimmerian elders' saying stated that earthquakes are caused by Crom rolling the bones of chance to decide man's fate.[11]
  • The Cimmerians didn't carve figures of Crom, as they would not presume to know what a god's face looks like, and simply set up a huge, bare stone to bow down before.[12]
