Channel Divinity: Tymora
By Erik Scott de Bie and Matthew Sernett
Tymora is the goddess of luck and the favored patron of adventurers. A deity’s influence is determined by how many mortals pray to her, and few exhortations are more common—particularly when one is fighting for one’s life—than those to good fortune. Since nearly everyone in the Realms has supplicated the Bright Lady at least once, this makes Tymora a powerful goddess indeed.
Tymorans are born with a love of testing their luck (some call it a death wish). They take ridiculous risks, which they see as an opportunity to prove their love and trust in the goddess. This is not to suggest that they are foolish or suicidal, only that given the choice between a practical, tried-and-true solution and a glorious charge with a much slimmer margin for error, the choice is obvious.

About the Authors
Erik Scott de Bie lives in the Seattle area with his wife, two cats, and far too much gamer stuff. He writes technical documentation by day, fights injustice by night, and gives the rest of his time to fiction, gaming, and his lovely lady (not necessarily in that order). He is the author of several Forgotten Realms novels, including Ghostwalker, Depths of Madness, and his most recent release, Downshadow.
Matthew Sernett is a writer and game designer for Wizards of the Coast who splits his time between Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering. Recent credits include Player's Handbook Races: Tieflings, The Plane Above: Secrets of the Astral Sea, and Magic the Gathering: Zendikar. When he’s not making monsters or building worlds, he’s watching bad fantasy movies you don’t realize exist and shouldn’t bother to learn about.
