Silvanus

Portals: Deities GeographyHistoryMagic

Silvanus (pronounced sihl-VANN-us), the Forest Father, is the god of nature, though formerly considered only the god of wild nature and druids. Silvanus is one of the most prominent and oldest deities in Faerûn, and the wilder counterpart to Chauntea the Earthmother. His worshipers protect places of nature from the encroachment of civilization with vigor and are implacable foes of industrious peoples. Silvanus is one of the Gods of Balance.

The Church of Silvanus is a pervasive influence, especially across the continent of Faerûn. Non-worshipers often do not view the Church favorably due to its tendency to disrupt expansion into woodland, sometimes with violence. Examples of rituals for worship are entreaties for spells at sundown or in moonlight. Most Silvanite clerics, sometimes referred to as Forest Masters, also function as druids or rangers.
