Articus, God of the Hunt
"Patience, little hunter. Be still and silent, and the prey will come to you."
Articus is a reserved but passionate god who cherishes his followers as well as his prey. Though not one of the most popular gods, he is heavily revered by hunters, and there are many festivals celebrated in rural areas in his honor. He is most often portrayed as a tall man with antlers carrying a large bow. His sacred animals are wolves and falcons.
Articus commands hunters to be honorable, and to kill only when there is a need.
Holy Books & Artifacts
Articus has no holy books or artifacts, but there is a code passed down from every hunter that honors him called the Hunter's Law. While the Hunter's Law is not a set of strict rules, Articus expects any honorable hunter to abide by the guidelines it sets. Those who ignore his Law may become cursed by the Hunter's Mark, an aura that both urges prey away and draws predators near, making the hunter's work fruitless and far more dangerous.
Holidays & Festivals
Rural communities hold many celebrations in his honor, and hunters give regular offerings. He has few permanent shrines, but the remnants of ones built hastily out of sticks, pelts, and other hunting related items can be founds throughout the wilderness.
