Maera is the goddess of magic, personifi ed by the moon, whose pale light affects the fl ow of magic in the world. Most mages, regardless of their art, worship her, for they are all affected by her waxing and waning. Her image is that of a cowled woman, holding a small loom in her left hand and a sphere (representing the moon) in her right hand.
Shrines to Maera are rare outside of magician’s domiciles, though some settlements worship her lunar aspect. Temples are depositories of magical knowledge, well warded by glyphs and protected by paladins against raids by thieves, Justicars, and Reliquae. At the center of every temple is an open chamber where rituals are conducted by moonlight. Many temples have taken to installing glass roofs, allowing the moonlight access, but thwarting would-be intruders (and the inclement weather). Such are the times in which men now live.
