In many campaign settings for the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, Arvoreen is the halfling deity of protection, vigilance, and war. He is also known as "The Defender."

In many campaign settings, the halfling pantheon of gods consists of the leader Yondalla, as well as Arvoreen, Brandobaris, Cyrrollalee, Sheela Peryroyl, and Urogalan.

Arvoreen lives in the halfling realm of the Green Fields on the plane of Mount Celestia.

Arvoreen's clerics wear silver chainmail and helmets. His sacred animal is the war dog. He is worshipped before battle. Silvered weapons are typically sacrificed to him when followers seek his blessing.

Arvoreen's most well noted follower is perhaps Mazzy Fentan, of Baldur's Gate II fame.
