Luna (Greyhawk Action)
Luna, known as Raenei, the Greater Moon, or the Mistress, is Oerth's silver satellite, the companion to the Lesser Moon, Celene. It is known as Mazlateotl among the Olman and as Konola among the Touv. From the perspective of Oerth, it cycles from its new to full phases once a month. Luna is a moody goddess, shifting from light to darkness as her cycle affects her mood and appearance. She is never clear in what she says, and demand that her worshipers decide for themselves what her sayings mean.
To the Elves, she is the goddess of travel, the goddess of hope and subtle influence. Luna is the home of the Elves, their ancestral mother and hope, personification of the Feywild. Her daughters are Lolth and Sehanine, twins who fight over her legacy. It is said that the elves came to Oerth riding Luna, and will depart the same way. Luna slowly moves away from Oerth, and the elves will leave Oerth along with Luna when she finally departs, but this is in the very distant future.
In the Common pantheon Luna the large moon is a moody goddess of secrets, illusion, shadows and magic. Her cult is small but she is a common figure in art.
To the Flan the mysterious moon represents renewal and roads not yet traveled. She leads ever on without revealing where, and is a goddess of aging, menstruation, dreams, and mysterious powers.
