Oath keepers dwell in secluded woods and dedicate themselves to protecting them from incursions from those that would damage them. They have a deer-like lower body and the torso, arms, and head of a woman (though adorned with antlers). They attack with antlers and hooves if pressed. They prefer to defend themselves with quests inflicted on the intruder, usually to repair damage done.

They are friendly with dryads and other fey and will often support them in interactions with other creatures by forcing fey and non-fey alike to honor their oaths through the power of a quest. More than one will sometimes be gathered to witness the contract.

The Haven players have encountered some of these of late, though in Mind Weave the quest mechanic works very differently and they have an organization the fey call upon for such oaths as they can provide.
