Age of Worms
God of farming, hunting, civilization, and family, Arturian was once the most prominent of the Gods of Light. He is a warm, fatherly figure promoting agriculture, technology and sensible use of wild resources. He stands guard over his family and his flock alike with fierce fatherly devotion, and his followers are staunch guardians and protectors. Arturian is the brother of Aureus, loyal husband to the Lady Aenryia, and devoted father of Liriel.
As the patron of civilization, Arturian also watches over cities and gatherings of folk, though not in the strictly mercantile way his aloof brother Aureus does. Arturian believes that hard work and advancing technology can be used for the good of all, and many is the inventor or explorer who wears the symbol of Arturian round his neck. Architects, bureaucrats and city guardsmen alike all revere the god of walls and cities. He is the light of safety in a world where the wild places are dangerous and frightening to the common man.
Arturian also sponsors several orders of monks, including the famous Alderstaff Brotherhood. Arturian is Good, his favored weapon is the Quarterstaff. His symbols are many— a sheaf of wheat, a well-groomed oak tree, or a great silver gear on a shield of steel.
