Hala is a benevolent goddess whose worship is native to the Demiplane of Dread, where her faith is found throughout the Southwestern Core. Unfortunately, the fact her faithful identify themselves privately as witches and warlocks earns them a fear and distrust they do not deserve, as their religion believes in the need to protect mortals and ease suffering. They have a particularly deep enmity for hags, who they feel are living embodiments of the corruption of Hala's teachings.

Hala's church was given its largest writeup in the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook "Van Richten's Monster Hunter's Compendium Volume III", as part of the otherwise unprinted "Van Richten's Guide to the Witch" sourcebook. It later became an entry in the Ravenloft Campaign Setting for 3.0, and the Ravenloft Player's Guide for 3.5.
