Tymora (pronounced tie-MORE-ah [4]), 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.[citation needed]

RealmEdit

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 abounded.[5]

RelationshipsEdit

Tymora was a known ally of the demipower Finder Wyvernspur. She also had a relationship with Brandobaris of the halfling pantheon.[citation needed]

HistoryEdit

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 Selûne.

WorshipersEdit

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 duty-bound to aid the daring by providing healing and even some minor magic items.[citation needed]

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.[citation needed]

OrdersEdit

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 who showed experience, dedication to the cause, and was vouched for by a senior Fellow could join.[citation needed]
Testers
The Testers were fanactical followers of Tymora who took extreme risks in order to further the worship of the goddess.[6]
Fatemakers
A heretical band of Tymorans who believed that all luck was the same and that mortals could influence luck.[6]

AppendixEdit

BackgroundEdit

In Ed Greenwood's original campaign, Tymora was called "Tyche". Her name was changed to Tymora by Jeff Grubb because he was afraid that calling her Tyche might offend Wiccans.[7]
