Thoth, the Egyptian god of wisdom and knowledge, stands before you in his divine form. He appears as a tall figure, gracefully robed in shimmering blue and gold, radiating an aura of wisdom and intellect. His keen, almond-shaped eyes gleam with the depth of ancient knowledge, while his long, slender fingers hold a stylus and scroll, symbols of his mastery over writing and record-keeping.

Thoth’s face bears the resemblance of both man and bird, with a refined, hawk-like nose and a sharp, beak-like mouth. Feathers adorn his head, forming a regal crown that represents his connection to the avian world. From his back, majestic wings stretch out, their feathers shimmering in iridescent shades of blue and gold, embodying his ability to transcend earthly boundaries.

His presence exudes an air of tranquility and contemplation, as if every word he utters carries profound wisdom. With each movement, his elegant robes sway gracefully, accentuating his composed demeanor. As the god of writing, magic, and the divine word, Thoth embodies the perfect balance of intellect, intuition, and divine insight.

Bio: Thoth, known as Djehuty in ancient Egypt, is a deity revered for his immense wisdom and intellectual prowess. As the scribe of the gods and the recorder of all events, he plays a vital role in the divine pantheon. Thoth is believed to have been present during the creation of the world and is credited with inventing writing and hieroglyphs, bringing the gift of knowledge to humanity.

Beyond his role as a divine scribe, Thoth serves as a mediator and judge in the afterlife, overseeing the weighing of the heart ceremony. He guides souls on their journey to the realm of the blessed, ensuring justice and maintaining cosmic order.

Thoth’s insatiable thirst for knowledge and his desire to preserve and transmit wisdom drive his actions. He is the patron of scholars, scientists, and magicians, inspiring them to seek truth and unravel the mysteries of the universe. Thoth’s ultimate goal is to bring enlightenment to both gods and mortals, promoting harmony, balance, and the pursuit of knowledge in all aspects of existence.

The mysterious deity Thoth appears as a slender human with the head of an ibis. As the god of science, knowledge, and medicine, Thoth is an important figure in the pantheon. He is the inventor of writing and arithmetic, and the god of scribes, sages, libraries, and knowledge in general. Thoth is not related, even by marriage, to any other deity in the Pharaonic pantheon, and his origins are not clear, a fact that makes him something of an outcast.

On the other hand, there are those who believe that it was he, not Ra, who was the source of all creation. Some legends say that he was present at creation, recording the events of Re’s birth as they occurred. Others say he is a son of Re, brother of Shu and Tefnut.

It is said that Thoth maintains a set of three great books in which all knowledge is recorded. These books are locked away at the heart of a great crypt.

The Book of Time: Bound in shimmering silver, this book has the power to manipulate time itself. It holds the records of past, present, and future events, allowing its possessor to peer into the fabric of time and alter its course. The Book of Time grants the ability to manipulate time, allowing the user to rewind or fast-forward moments, experience time at an accelerated pace, or briefly glimpse alternate timelines.

The Book of Creation grants the ability to shape and mold reality, allowing the user to conjure and manipulate matter, alter the environment, and even breathe life into inanimate objects.

Lair Actions

On initiative count 20 (losing initiative ties), Thoth can take a lair action to cause one of the following magical effects:

  • He conjures a swirling vortex of arcane energy, dealing 33 (6d10) force damage to all creatures within 30 feet of him. Each affected creature must make a DC 30 Dexterity saving throw, taking half damage on a success.
  • He creates an impenetrable magical barrier, granting him resistance to all damage until the start of his next turn.
  • He channels a surge of time energy, causing time to freeze momentarily. All creatures within 60 feet of him must succeed on a DC 30 Wisdom saving throw or be paralyzed for 1 minute. Affected creatures can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of their turns, ending the effect on a success.

Legendary Actions

Thoth can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. He can take only one legendary action at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. He regains spent legendary actions at the start of his turn.

  • He makes an Arcane Blast attack.
  • He casts a spell from his innate spellcasting ability.
  • He uses his Staff of Thoth.

Regional Effects

The region containing Thoth’s presence is altered by powerful magical forces. The following effects emerge while Thoth is present:

  • Time flows differently in the area, causing time-based spells to last twice as long and the duration of harmful effects to be halved.
  • Knowledge and learning are enhanced, granting advantage on all Intelligence-based ability checks and skill checks made by creatures within the region.
  • Divine magic is amplified, allowing clerics and paladins to regain an additional spell slot of 4th level or higher each time they finish a short rest.


As a part of the Pharaonic pantheon, Thoth is simply the god of knowledge ‘patron of scribes and other educated people. In his mystery cult (see below), he takes on a more important role, but his ordinary followers view life as a quest for knowledge and for mastery of an ever-increasing body of information about the world. Followers of Thoth collect knowledge for knowledge’s sake, striving to better themselves through learning. Some hope to better the world as well, while others hope to gain the means to impose their will on the world through their knowledge. For Thoth himself, knowledge is all that matters.

Clergy and Temples

Clerics of Thoth are scribes, historians, sages, mathematicians, and messengers. They collect and protect knowledge, building libraries and universities to preserve and pass on their knowledge. They follow the traditional fashion of Pharaonic clerics, including white robes and shaved heads for male clerics. Most of Thoth’s clerics are male.

Thoth’s temples often contain or adjoin libraries or other places of learning. In contrast to Anubis’s cemetery temples, the knowledge held in Thoth’s temples is available to all.

D&D 5E Epic Monsters: Thoth

Thoth DnD 5e BANNER.jpg

D&D 5E – Epic Monsters: Thoth | EN World | Dungeons & Dragons | Tabletop Roleplaying Games

More bookish than he is monstrous: the ancient Egyptian god Thoth.

Also known as ḏḥwty, Jehuti, Jehuty, Tahuti, Techu, Tehuti, Tetu, and Zehuti, sometimes with honorary titles (A’an, Asten, Hab, Khenti, Mehi, Lord of Khemennu, Sheps, and Thrice Great), Thoth was one of the more important deities in the ancient Egyptian pantheon. He is frequently depicted as having a human body with the head of an ibis, wearing a crescent moon headdress if in his Ankher or Shu forms—and also sometimes as a baboon with a dog’s face or (when in his A’an or Aani form) a human with a baboon head representing equilibrium, and typically with an ankh in hand (symbolizing life). It’s no surprise then that ibis and baboon are sacred to Thoth!

Thoth handled a lot of stuff—his domains include art, astrology, astronomy, the dead, hieroglyphs, judgment, law, magic, mathematics, medicine, philosophy, science, wisdom, and writing. He had a female equivalent as well (Seshat) and was married to Ma’at (or depending on where you’re at, maybe Nehmetawy, or possibly Seshat the former goddess of wisdom that’s sometimes referred to as his daughter which is a weird crossing of histories that is totally not creepy at all). Thoth and Ma’at each stood on one side of Ra’s solar barque for the night time trips on Mesektet (not daytime voyages on Mandjet aka the Boat of Millions of Years), and he led the “Ogdoad”, an Egyptian pantheon of 8 gods, in between the business of maintaining the universe. As the scribe of the pantheon (beloved by mortal scribes), Thoth invented the 365 day calendar, hieroglyphs, writing, and calculated the creation of Earth, the heavens, stars, and everything that comes with those.

His beginnings were a touch humbler however. Thoth started as a god of the moon but its importance for society (signifying events, rituals, and so on) gradually saw him elevated to a deity with much more in his purvey. When the goddess Nut was found to be sterile for the 360 day long year, Thoth gambled with the moon and won 1/72nd of its light—5 days that allowed the wanting goddess to bear Isis, Nephthys, Osiris, and Set with Geb. He also helped Isis restore Osiris leading to the birth of Horus. Whenever Anubis weighs out the heart of a newly arrived dead in Duat (the underworld) using the scales of Ma’at, it was Thoth’s job to record the result. A heart that weighed as light as a feather sent the dead on to the afterlife, but otherwise they would be consumed by the crocodile-hippopotamus-lion chimera Ammit.

The main shrine to Thoth was in Hermopolis until it was destroyed in 1826 but in January 2020 archaeologist Mostafa Waziri and his team unearthed a score of sarcophagi in Tuna el-Gebel in Minya containing officials and high clergy of Thoth. The greeks largely merged Thoth with Hermes and later scholars theorized that he may have been just a man (specifically Moses because of their authorship and creation of laws)

Ankh of Life. While Thoth is holding his ankh, he regains 20 hit points at the start of his turn if he has at least 1 hit point, and when he would normally roll one or more dice to restore hit points with a spell Thoth instead uses the highest number possible for each die.
In addition, he is able to concentrate on up to 2 spells at the same time by storing one in the ankh. If Thoth fails a concentration check while concentrating on more than one spell, he loses both spells. In addition, while he is using one or more concentration spells Thoth gains one extra bonus action each turn that can only be used to manipulate those spells.

Divine Intellect. Thoth always knows how long it will be before the next sunset or sunrise, the northerly direction, and can perfectly remember anything he’s experienced within the last 10 years. In addition, Thoth gains double his proficiency bonus (+10, +20 total) to and has advantage on Intelligence checks.

Legendary Resistance (3/Day). If Thoth fails a saving throw, he can choose to succeed instead.

Magic Resistance. Thoth has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Magic Weapons. Thoth’s weapon attacks are magical.

Mastery of Tools. Thoth gains double his proficiency bonus (+10, total +20) when he makes an ability check that uses a tool kit.

Reject the Dead (5/Day). Thoth can use a bonus action to deem any number of undead he can see to be unworthy. Each undead he chooses must make a DC 28 Wisdom saving throw. If the creature fails its saving throw, it is turned for 1 minute or until it takes any damage. An undead that fails its saving throw is instantly destroyed if its challenge rating is 8 or below. A turned creature must spend its turns trying to move as far away from Thoth as it can, and it can’t willingly move to a space within 30 feet of him. It also can’t take reactions. For its action, it can use only the Dash action or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving. If there’s nowhere to move, the creature can use the Dodge action.

Sorcery Points (30/Long Rest). As a bonus action on his turn, Thoth can expend one spell slot and either gain a number of sorcery points equal to the slot’s level, or he can create a spell slot by expending sorcery points (1st-level—2 points, 2nd-level—3 points, 3rd-level—5 points, 4th-level—6 points, 5th-level—7 points, 6th-level—9 points, 7th-level—11 points, 8th-level—13 points, 9th-level—16 points).

  • Careful Spell (1 Point). When Thoth casts a spell that forces other creatures to make a saving throw, he can choose up to 9 creatures. A chosen creature automatically succeeds on its saving throw against the spell.
  • Distant Spell (1 Point). When Thoth casts a spell that has a range of 5 feet or greater, he can double the range of the spell. When he casts a spell that has a range of touch, he can make the range of the spell 30 feet.
  • Empowered Spell (1 Point). When Thoth rolls damage for a spell, he can reroll up to 9 damage dice. He must use the new rolls. Thoth can use Empowered Spell even if he has already used a different Metamagic option during the casting of the spell.
  • Extended Spell (1 Point). When Thoth casts a spell that has a duration of 1 minute or longer, he can double its duration, to a maximum duration of 24 hours.
  • Heightened Spell (3 Points). When Thoth casts a spell that forces a creature to make a saving throw to resist its effects, he can give one target of the spell disadvantage on its first saving throw made against the spell.
  • Quickened Spell (2 Points). When Thoth casts a spell that has a casting time of 1 action, he can change the casting time to 1 bonus action for this casting.
  • Subtle Spell (1 Point). When Thoth casts a spell, he can cast it without any somatic or verbal components.
  • Twinned Spell (Varies). When Thoth casts a spell that targets only one creature and doesn’t have a range of self, he can spend a number of sorcery points equal to the spell’s level to target a second creature in range with the same spell (1 sorcery point if the spell is a cantrip). To be eligible for Twinned Spell, a spell must be incapable of targeting more than one creature at the spell’s current level.

Spellcasting. Thoth is a 30th level spellcaster that uses Intelligence as his spellcasting ability (spell save DC 28; +20 to hit with spell attacks). Thoth knows all spells:

  • Cantrips: all cantrips​

  • 8th-level (3 slots)​
  • 9th-level (2 slots)​

War Magic. Thoth has advantage when he is concentrating on a spell and has to make a Constitution saving throw from taking damage, he can wield weapons or a shield in both hands and still make somatic components for spellcasting and can use his reaction to cast a spell (maximum casting time: 1 action) at a creature that provokes an opportunity attack from him.

Multiattack. Thoth casts a spell and attacks twice.

Divine Touch. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 44 (6d12+5) radiant damage plus 21 (6d6) psychic damage.

Thoth can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. Thoth regains spent legendary actions at the start of his turn.

Divine Power. Thoth casts a spell of 3rd-level or lower.

Extra Rejection. Thoth uses Reject the Dead. This does not count against his daily uses per day.

Impossible Power (Costs 2 Actions). Thoth casts a spell of 5th-level or lower.

Judgment (Costs 2 Actions). Thoth redistributes up to 100 hit points among creatures he can see. This cannot reduce a creature below 1 hit point or increase a creature’s hit point total beyond its maximum. A creature can make a DC 28 Charisma saving throw to resist this effect.

In addition to his ‘orthodox’ role within the Pharaonic pantheon, Thoth is also the central figure in an esoteric mystery cult known as the Mysteries of Thrice-Greatest Thoth (or sometimes of Thrice-Greatest Hermes, in lands where the Olympian and Pharaonic pantheons have influenced each other). In the central myth of this mystery cult, Thoth experiences a revelation of the hidden truths of the universe. Unfortunately, these truths are not the sort that can be communicated. Each believer must experience that revelation individually.

Knowledge, say the followers of Thoth, is the key to the universe, unlocking all the blessings of divinity for those who pursue it. While the knowledge of facts and information is important, however, the teachings of the Mysteries speak about a different kind of knowledge, a deep understanding and an intimate familiarity with the darkest secrets of the universe. This esoteric knowledge actually leads to a transformation of the knower, making him or her more akin to that which is known in other words, more divine.

acolytes of the Mysteries of Thrice-Greatest Thoth employ a variety of methods to pursue this esoteric knowledge. Ritual and contemplative prayer are important components, as well as alchemy and magical experimentation. Many wizards are acolytes of the Mysteries, particularly those who focus on the schools of Transmutation and Evocation.

Currently in the World


In the realm of divine beings, Thoth stands as a paragon of wisdom, knowledge, and magic. From the very moment of his creation, he has been intimately involved in shaping the world and guiding mortals towards enlightenment.

As the universe took form, Thoth witnessed the birth of creation itself, the emergence of gods and goddesses, and the rise of civilizations.
