Tymora (pronounced tie-MORE-ah ), 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.
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.
Tymora resided in the Gates of the Moon, allied to but independent of that realm's twin mistresses. Her realm was the Great Wheel, seven earthmotes connected by lofty bridges, where games of chance, tests of luck and gambling abound.
- 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.
- The Testers were fanactical followers of Tymora who took extreme risks in order to further the worship of the goddess.
- A heretical band of Tymorans who believed that all luck was the same and that mortals could influence luck.
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.
