The Domain of Areja – a new cleric domain for D&D/Freeya

Areja, Goddess of the First Circle, Lady of Life and Growing, Daughter of Earth and Water

Areja was stunned by the beauty of the material plane, which the elements created by merging into the spirit. She fell in love with the newly created life. It is her eternal wish to cultivate this beautiful garden and its inhabitants.

The followers of Areja are guided by her vow to this day, and as their goddess they guide all living things to realize their full potential.

Her younger brother Golog is in constant opposition to her. His vision for the garden is far more nefarious and vicious than that of his sister. Of all the six siblings of the first circle, these two share the harshest rivalry.
