The Great Mother, The Earth Mother, The Grain Goddess
Chauntea (pronounced Chawn-TEE-ah) is the goddess of life and a parallel deity to the nature deity Silvanus, who was considered the god of wild nature, whilst Chauntea herself is seen as being the embodiment of all things agrarian or agriculture. She is a goddess of agriculture, plants cultivated by humans, farmers, gardeners, and summer.
Some of her worshipers claimed that her divine glimmer gave life to the natural world, and some contended that she was the creator and source of all mortal races. In some sense Chauntea was the manifestation of the earth itself.
Chauntea is worshipped primarily in regions that depend on agriculture, by farmers, gardeners and anyone involved in the cultivation of plants. The great temple farm of Goldenfields is dedicated to her worship. However even the busiest of cities will have at least a shrine for her worshippers.
Her brown robed druids and priests assist farmers with their crops, minimising the impact of farming on the natural world where possible.
The symbol of Chauntea is a blooming rose on a wreath of golden grain.
