Nils's ref asks:

> What was the Devil like, "Personality"-wise?

Absolutely insatiably Evil. The vilest possible "personality" you can imagine. Wakboth the Devil defiled the world and laughed while doing it. If he was a book, he'd be the Wasp Factory.

> Who were his followers?

Chaos filth: broos, depraved humans, krjalki scum, and shapeless Things That Should Not Be. Nobody you'd want to meet. Mind you, he ate them too for kicks.

> Are there any of these still around?

I'm pretty sure the Broos still love to hate Wakboth, but I doubt they'd get any tangible benefit (i.e. regular, useful Rune spells and the like) from doing so. Unless your ref comes up with something so awe-inspiringly EVIL that he can't resist unleashing it on you. As for me, I enjoy the thought of Gloranthan Devil-Worship so much that I'm sure it happens: think of the conception of Argin Terror, the Nightmare Sorcerer; or was anyone within earshot when Ken Rolston manifested as Wakibopheles in the Necromancer's Tower at Sog City Uni?

Incidentally, I'd recommend issue #3 of John Castellucci's "RuneQuest Adventures Fanzine" as having a wealth of material on the Block.

Bosse might want to look at issue #1 of Mike Dawson's "Codex" magazine, which contains Sandy Petersen's descriptions of the tribes of Prax, taken from the RuneQuest Daily and padded out with extra bits by Martin Crim.

If it does, it'd probably be "Chaos"! I enjoyed that last posting a lot. Nice to know you appreciated the damage you were doing to my magnificent Empire! But were you implying my emperor-ing was in any way out of order? I thought I was acting exactly as a Dara Happan Emperor would have done, under the circumstances...

A myth explaining the origin of Dara Happan "impure thoughts" is tucked away inside the writeup of the Empty Emperor, FS p.11.
