Oracle of the Deities

One of the seven dead gods of magic, Boccob, was steadfastly neutral in relation to his colleagues. His titles included the Uncaring, Lord of Summoning, and Oracle of the Deities. Boccob was a distant deity who promoted no special agenda in the world of mortals. As a god of magic and knowledge, he was venerated by many arcane spellcasters, conjurists, sages and seers. He was commonly worshiped in Sembia and Ravens Bluff. The domains Boccob was also associated with were Mind, and Trickery; together they promoted social mind games in sagely circles. The quarterstaff is was weapon of choice.

In Classical Antiquity, an oracle was a person or agency considered to be a source of wise counsel or prophetic predictions or precognition of the future, inspired by the gods. As such it is a form of divination.
