Nerthus, also known as The Staff, is the Goddess of animals, divine power, nature, the weather and Wild Elves. The first member of the Seven and the first to become a deity, Nerthus is the second most supported deity.
City-goers see Nerthus as a benevolent, peaceful, healing deity. People in the wilderness see her more as the mistress of the wild, as unforgiving, bloodied and untameable as the elements she controls.
She is worshipped by shamans, druids, hunters, animal-keepers, farmers and people living in the wild. Prayers to Nerthus tend to be given for good health, guidance through the wilderness, for the healthy birth of an animal, when tracking prey or in the name of peace when in a city.
