[top]Introduction


The Land's Protectorate is an institution of faith that acts like a temple in the Burrows. It is led by the Elder Deacon Elan Fairbairn.

[top]Doctrine and Faith


The temple of the Land's Protectorate reflects the halflings' special tie with the land and beyond. Its religion centers on a respect for the land and the barriers between Daylight World and Shadow World. As such, it does not worship any god but its deacons and guides have abilities similar to priests. Some of its teachings are similar to those of Ruornil, but it is also seen as a source of knowledge on Shadow magic. Some scholars believe that Erik watches over the Protectorate and its care for the land, but others view the success and harmony of the Burrows to be a sign of Sera's power.

The Land's Protectorate is also used by warriors, rogues and priests for training in the Shadow World abilities particular to halflings. As such it is like a guild in that it teaches and administers exclusive skills and practises. The main lodge in each province is run by a Deacon, with the Elder Deacon being the regent.
