Gara Campaign Setting
Vaelle is often referred to as the Stalwart Shield due to his resolve to protect those who protect others. He is the patron of honor, ambition and true nobility. His followers dedicate themselves to whatever they do, striving to achieve one goal after another, reaching the ultimate goal only in self-sacrifice or elderly peace. Even then, most elders who follow Vaelle pass on their knowledge through teaching and hands-on training until they are physically unable to do so.
The priesthood tends to wear blue tabbards with silver trim over an ornately crafted chain shirt, drawn tight around the waist by a leather sword belt. His temples vary according to the wealth of the community it serves, but usually includes a small armory. Many temples are constructed of the same stone the city walls are and often reinforce the defenses with crenelated battlements rising above the wall, sometimes with a ballista facing the frontier.
