Tymora, Goddess of Good Fortune

Tymora_symbol.jpgIntroduction
Tymora or more commonly Lady Luck, was the goddess of good fortune. She shone upon those who took risks and blessed those who dealt harshly with the followers of Beshaba. Should someone flee from her sisters’ mischievous followers or defile the dead, their fate would be decided with a roll of Tymora’s dice.

Worshipers
Commonly consisting of adventurers and others who relied on a mixture of luck and skill to achieve their goals, the Tymoran clergy encouraged folk to pursue their dreams. They were also dutybound to aid the daring by providing healing and even some minor magic items.

Shrines and temples of Tymora were widespread as the needs of adventurers to be healed made the temples wealthy. These places of worship often differed significantly from each other in powers, manners and titles though, with little overall authority or hierarchy. The temples provided potions, scrolls or other little things like glowstones, often as rewards to those who served Tymora and her tenets well.

Orders
Fellows of Free Fate
This was a special fellowship of clergy within the church of Tymora who dedicated themselves to countering the efforts of Beshaba, and especially of the Black Fingers, her assassins. Any clergy member could join who showed experience, dedication to the cause and is vouched for by a senior Fellow.

History
Tymora was a sister to Beshaba, the goddess of misfortune, having been created when Tyche, the former deity of luck, was infected by Moander’s evil essence and split apart by Sel√Ľne.

Dogma
One should be bold, for to be bold is to live. A brave heart and willingness to take risks beat out carefully wrought plans nine times out of ten. Place yourself in the hands of fate and trust your own luck. Bear and conduct yourselves as your own masters, showing your good or bad fortune as confidence in the Lady. Chase your own unique goals, and the Lady aids the chase. Without direction or goals, you soon know the embrace of Beshaba, For those on no set course are at the mercy of misfortune, which has no mercy at all.

Quest
Tymora has passed down a quest to her followers to retrieve a book which is in current possessed by a banshee named Agatha. Agatha refuses to relinquish possession of this book. The book details the creation, maintenance, and shutting down of a Forge of Spells.
