Chauntea is the mother of Toril, and she oversees the interaction of sentient mortals with the natural world. She draws worshippers from all who depend on the land for their livelihood, including farmers and villages (who live close to the land) and druids (who rend the wild reaches). Chauntea is a kindly goddess who nurtures and feeds the world.
Chauntea is selectable as a patron diety for player characters. Worshippers of Chauntea are referred to as Chaunteans.
