Arvoreen, also known as The Defender, was the halfling deity of protection, vigilance, and war and an exarch of Sheela Peryroyl, herself a servant of Chauntea the Earthmother.[8] He was fiercely protective of the halfling race and its settlements. Arvoreen lived in the realm of the Green Fields on the plane of Mount Celestia and his sacred animal is the war dog.

WorshipersEdit

Arvoreen charged his followers to defend halfling homes by being prepared against any aggressive incursions by participating in regular drills, arms practice and planning. He was worshipped by his clerics before battle; they wore silver chainmail and helmets. Silvered weapons were typically sacrificed to him when followers seek his blessing.[citation needed]

RelationshipsEdit

Of the halfling gods, Arvoreen was most closely aligned with Yondalla, Cyrrollalee and Urogalan. He disapproved of the more capricious members of the pantheon, such as Brandobaris. Evil deities, especially the patrons of goblinoids incited Arvoreen to great wrath. He opposed Bane, Cyric and the Deities of Fury.[9]
