Known to her followers as the Gentle Lover and the Delicate Flower, Aldne favors Kindness and Love in her followers while rebuking Chastity and Wrath.
Aldne encourages her followers to seek love in a lasting partner and with them raise a family. To aid one another in child rearing and grow beneficial herbs for good health.
Inter-deity relationships are under construction.
Aldne communicates with her faithful through visions of true love, and paths of flower petals.
Finding such a path is said to lead you towards a lover. However finding a wilted flower or plant in your path while walking with a lover is a sign of great misfortune, especially if the plant has particularly potent healing properties.
Church of Aldne
The church of Aldne is comprised of many garners, nursemaid's, midwives, healers, prostitutes, parents and alchemists. The church maintains large open gardens that double as temples to Alden. These gardens provide much free nourishment to the communities in which they have been grown.
Many of Aldne's clergy are Alchemists, Clerics and Bards. She has few Paladins to her service but they are said to be extremely beautiful, morso than those of other deities. Some believe that the paladins use special pheromone extracts to be more appealing and command more attention. Other members of the clergy spend much of their time gardening, concocting and feeding the people. The church does sell some of its more rare ingredients to keep the church funded.
