Arros the Radiant, the Valiant, the Forgiving. She is ever present in the world but does not interfere with it in overt displays. She may be reached through prayer and sometimes influences the world in subtle ways. It is said if you think She has sent an obvious sign, then She surely hasn't.



Around 500 B.M., during the Era of Enlightenment, the people of Ordsall began having strange dreams of a woman who didn't look quite right. There were whispers of madness in the village and anyone who dreamt of the strange being began keeping quiet.

Eventually, the being reached into Betella Mulhin's dreams and for once got a warm welcome. Betella was a lonely woman, willing to give anyone who looked her way a chance. The being introduced Herself as Arros and began visiting Betella every night.

Arros slowly taught Betella of Her role in creating the world and Her long slumber. As the first to accept Her, Betella wrote everything down in the Ealac and founded Arenism.



The clergy is made entirely of women and they are the only ones allowed to make copies of the Ealac. Leaders are encouraged to get married and have large families.


Prayer takes place in the morning after waking up, the basic form asks for the day to be blessed. Prayers become more complex and personal as worshippers mature. Temples are maintained for holidays, marriages, and funeral services.



Arens value loyalty, bravery, and honesty. They also consider moderation important.


Arros was alone for many years. She became so lonely that She cried and created the stars from Her tears. She brought them closer to Her, forming the planets before she planted the seeds of life and fell into a long slumber.


The afterlife is a place where Arros directly influences the world. The dead acsend to a higher state of being with muted emotions.



Marriage is a serious commitment in Arenism. Marriages are celebrated for several days and end with the partners exchanging symbolic, often homemade, jewelry. These are typically necklaces but may be other types like rings, bracelets, and earrings.


Newborns are taken to a temple the day after their birth. Their hands are painted and pressed onto a blessed piece of parchment. This parchment is protective and is kept in a special box underneath their bed for their entire life.


Death rites are performed immediately after the person has passed and are performed by a member of the clergy. The body is then taken for burial as soon as possible.
