Chauntea (CH-ann-tay)

Chauntea is a deity worshipped as the goddess of agriculture, harvest, and fertility. She is often worshipped by farmers, gardeners, and those who rely on the land for their livelihood.

Where the Cult Thrives

Chauntae is among the most worshipped deities throughout Runetalras, for all must eat, and all must reproduce. Chauntea is worshipped within Thaxnoria as a part of the Octurn, she is worshipped throughout the Free States, the Cult of Chauntea has even found its way to the Yhess Kingdoms where desperate farmers worship her while working barren soil.

Tenets of the Faith

The followers of Chauntea believe that the goddess is responsible for the fertility of the land and the success of crops. They pray to her for bountiful harvests and protection from natural disasters that may harm their crops. They also believe in the importance of hard work and respecting the land.   The various cults of Chauntea all teach of the Eternal Cycle of growing, reaping and sowing once more, of birth, life, and giving birth to new life. The Eternal Cycle must continue, the mortal races must go on, they are the hearts in a heartless world, only in them can love and nurture continue. The Eternal Cycle teaches that all those who embrace life are blessed and those who perpetuate death and destruction, as well as those who pursue romantic relations which cannot result in offspring are abominations disrupting this Cycle. The degree to which the latter is preached by all the priests and faithful differs based upon region and individuals.
