Selune

Selûne (pronounced seh-LOON-ay), also known as Our Lady of Silver and the Moonmaiden, is the goddess of the moon. She is also venerated in Faerûn as a goddess of light, stars, navigation, navigators, wanderers, questers, and goodly lycanthropes.

Relationships

The Zakharan deity Selan is a moon goddess that shares a similar name and outlook with Selûne, but has a somewhat different area of interest, namely beauty. Thus the connection between the two remains a mystery.

Worshipers

Selûne's clerics are a very diverse group, including sailors, non-evil lycanthropes, mystics, and female spellcasters. Her church's main objective is to fight evil lycanthropes and summon the Shards, blue-haired female planetar servants of Selûne, to battle the minions of her archnemesis and twin, Shar. The temple also performs fortune-telling, healing, and practices self-reliance and humility.

Followers of the Moonmaiden often set bowls of milk, a sacred fluid, outside on nights when the moon is full.

Orders

Swords of the Lady

One order of fanatic Selûnites is known as the Swords of the Lady, who are often referred to colloquially as the "Lunatics". Its members are led by a few Selûnite crusaders who tend to act rapidly in response to threats from Shar and her priesthood, although their behavior is often viewed as bizarre by the public at large.

Oracles of the Moon

The Oracles of the Moon are a group of female diviners who worship the Night White Lady. They perform fortune-telling rituals and are some of the highest bards and priests in the faith.

Silverstars

Operating mainly in the North, especially Icewind Dale, these priests and priestesses are dedicated to protecting the vulnerable. Gifted Silverstars are normally gifted with a Moonblade, which have special properties to harm those who are evil.

Heresies

Those who believe in the Dark Moon heresy hold that Selûne and Shar are two faces of the same goddess.
