MeloraD&D Insider Article
Channel Divinity
By Matthew Sernett

An adventurer who worships Melora or seeks her favor can show devotion through the equipment the character carries. The weapons, holy symbol, wondrous items, and other magical possessions described here all share the theme of water, either for its life-giving aspect or its deadly nature, and can be welcome aids to many of Melora’s faithful.

Those who listen for it can hear Melora’s influence in the lilt of birdsong and the gurgle of a brook. One can feel her presence when mountains quake, and when the tide draws the sea back into itself or hurls it ashore. A worshiper of Melora might honor her as a mother to life, propitiate her deadly nature, or pay homage to her beasts, which exemplify the natural struggle between the forces of creation and destruction.
