Auril is the Forgotten Realms goddess of cold and winter. She is the boss of the 5th Edition adventure Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaden.

Lore[edit]

Auril was believed to have been once one of the Archfey, specifically, the Queen of Air and Darkness, who gained her divinity by absorbing power from the slumbering Ulutiu, one day hoping to completely absorb the god's portfolios and gain control over all things related to cold. Though not written down, the developers have not flat out confirm or deny this implied theory and even put forth a counter-theory that the Queen of Air and Darkness and Auril have on occasion been gaining additional influence by impersonating each other.

Dogma[edit]

Cover all the lands with ice. Quench fire wherever it is found. Let in the winds and the cold; cut down windbreaks and chop holes in walls and roofs that my breath may come in. Work darkness to hide the cursed sun so that the chill that Auril brings may slay. Take the life of an arctic creature only in great need, but all others at will. Make all Faerûn fear the Frostmaiden. Revere the Cold Goddess and sing her praises into any chill breeze or winter wind. Do not raise your hand against any other cleric of Auril.
