Images of Findeladlara

Findeladlara is the elven goddess of art and architecture. She believes in preserving tradition and prefers innovation over the creation of something entirely new. She actively supports the preservation of elven culture through the protection of their art and historic buildings. While Findeladlara is a good goddess, she often comes off as aloof, particularly to younger, non-elven races. She is known to judge their work harshly and never answers the prayers of a non-elf.[1]


When shown in art, she appears as a beautiful elven woman in traditional elven dress. She is normally depicted standing beneath an archway of either mithral or branches, whilst being illuminated by the setting sun.[1] Her holy symbol is a hand pointing upward suspending a golden star or flame.[2]


Devotees of Findeladlara occasionally come into conflict with those of Shelyn. While the latter encourages innovation among artists, the former scoffs at the achievements of those who have not already mastered the traditional elven crafts. Even though there is no overt hostility between these groups, each believes that the other is misguided and wasting their potential.[3]

Church of Findeladlara

Priests of the Guiding Hand often craft their own quarterstaves, capping them with silver and decorating them with precious gems and crystals.[3]
