For the majority of these sects, the most common incarnation of Darien portrays him as the god of merriment. Because laughter comes so often with good friends, food and drink, the demigod eventually became associated with such in more rural areas where close-knit communities were found. For this reason, if one looks closely in a backwoods tavern, one might see the god’s symbol somewhere inconspicuous in an effort to gain his blessing. Happy customers are returning customers, after all. Eventually performing bards might be seen to order a drink before a performance and set it to the side, remaining untouched throughout the night. This glass was for the god, an invitation for him to join in the fun.

The association with merriment manifested somewhat differently in urban societies. Darien subtly appeared within the arts. In certain performances or during the creation of particular artistic pieces, one might call on the god to help inspire laughter and general merriment within observers. These same pieces might also become an offering to the god in thanks for his aid. However, most of the references to Darien within any urban setting were in a more general sense, the everyday usage applied to all the gods’ domains. Most worshippers of this aspect of Darien were found within the rural communities mentioned above.
