In the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, Rillifane Rallathil is the elven god of Nature, and patron deity of wood elves.

In many campaign settings, the elven pantheon of gods (also known as the Seldarine) consists of the leader Corellon Larethian, as well as Aerdrie Faenya, Deep Sashelas, Erevan Ilesere, Fenmarel Mestarine, Hanali Celanil, Labelas Enoreth, Rillifane Rallathil, Sehanine Moonbow, and Solonor Thelandira. Other elven gods may be present in different campaign settings.

Description[]

Rillifane appears as a green-skinned elf clad in bark armor and carrying a magic bow that slays any target hit by one of its arrows.

Relationships[]

Rillifane is on good terms with other members of the Seldarine, and considers the centaur deity Skerrit the Forester a close friend.

Worshippers[]

Wood elves consider Rillifane their patron deity. Wood elves that do not worship Rillifane often worship Skerrit the Forester; as the two deities are good friends, there is no conflict between their worshippers.

Clergy[]

Rillifane's clerics wear dark green vestments, tree bark armor, and a laurel wreath on their head.

Temples, rituals, and holy days[]

Rillifane's holy days are the equinoxes. He is worshipped on tree platforms. Carved items are sacrificed to him semiannually. His sacred animals are forest birds.

Creative origins[]

James M. Ward created the Rillifane Rallathil for the Deities and Demigods Cyclopedia (1980).
