Hotoksoth is said to be one of the ancient beast, the soths, who once ruled over Delcrys, each over their own domain. Hotoksoth is believed by some to be a mountain, while others claim it rules over mountains, seemingly with ease passing through the rock itself. Some folks even claim the creature is still alive, though deep in slumber.
The Lair of the Hotoksoth is one of the possible places, where the beast might be, though hardly anyone dares to venture deep into the caves. According to the local folklore, a nearby ruined village, known as Hotokturhinn, was named after the beast, to grant the settlement protection from its wrath.
