As a DeityEdit
Shiallia is the deity of fertility, woodland glades and growth. She is earthy and charming in a childlike way. Her coarse manner sometimes leads people to believe that she behaves like a satyr, but she is much deeper than a satyr and has a mystical quality about her which a satyr could never have. She loves playing with the creatures of the woodland and is very protective of them.
Clerics of ShialliaEdit
Clerics of Shiallia are known as wood-wives or husbands of nature. They spend their life tending to the earth; planting and nurturing and looking after the ill. They guide those who are lost in the woods, and sometimes are given the name Silent Helpers. They pray for their spells when the moon reaches its highest peak in the sky - as the moon governs the reproductive cycle.
The only true goal of any living thing is to procreate. Nature dictates the shape of the world, for good or ill, so the only concern of the creatures that inhabit it is survival. Death is not to be feared, for it is part of the natural cycle of life, but life, particularly the birth of new life, is to be encouraged and nurtured whenever possible.
