Domains: Knowledge, Nature
Pseudonyms: the Horned God, the Bearded Shepherd
Symbol: Horns of a ram.
The Bearded Shepherd is a wandering deity who is most at home in nature, traveling the world in search of ancient wisdom and lore. Some of his faith are said to be able to speak with animals, plants, and whatever else one might find it interesting to have a conversation. After all, sometimes an ancient oak has more knowledge to impart than any man or library.
Clerics and Paladins that choose Veles as their patron deity, though the latter has yet to occur, are known as Shepherds, and have access to the Nature and Knowledge domains. Regardless of their chosen aspect, dedicates of Veles are often curious souls stricken with some degree of wanderlust.
