Imaera is the Goddess of the Nature and Autumn. She is also often considered the patron of the sylvan elves.

While Oleani's realm is cultivation and the fertility of mortals, Imaera's realm is the wilds and unfettered nature. Her consort is Eonak, without whose rocky soil, no plant could grow. As the Goddess of life and growing things, hers are the plants and animals native to the land. Credited with the re-creation of most of the species on Elanthia, and with several of the human-like races, she is the mistress of shaping flesh, bone, and plant to suit any need. As such her blessing is often sought by those who practice the healing arts.

Imaera is also the Goddess of the harvest and so of the bounty which the land produces in its cycle of life. While Oleani oversees cultivation and agriculture, the final blessing of Imaera is needed for the spark of life. Because of this she is often honored in autumn festivals.

All of the aspects of Imaera are in direct opposition to the twisting and deformation of life forms practiced by some of the Dark Gods, and of the senseless destruction of life and land that most of their minions undertake as a matter of course.

Imaera’s preferred humanoid manifestation is that of a young woman, often sylvan, dressed in robes of leaves and flowers. In manner, she is exuberant. Her symbol is a golden sheaf of grain on a field of green when she is worshipped by farmers. The sylvan elves ascribe to her a brown doe on a field of green.

Shrines, Statuary, and Holy Places

Cleric Guilds

Displayed in the Prayer Rooms of each Cleric Guild is a state of Imaera. These prayer rooms are considered a holy shrine to multiple deities.

You see the cheerful, sylvan countenance of Imaera. Her young body is clad in robes of leaves and flowers. A young doe stands beside her. Behind her is a sheaf of grain.

K>touch Imaera
You reach out and touch the statue of Imaera.

A warm feeling washes over you, as if Imaera smiled upon you.

Wehnimer's Landing Cleric Guild

Located in the Antechamber of Liabo is a table inset with disks depicting all of the Liabo arkati, including one for Imaera. This area is not considered a holy shrine.

A brown doe on a field of green is painted on the crystal disk representing Imaera.

Icemule Trace Cleric Guild

One of the Halls of Lessons in the Icemule Trace Cleric Guild is dedicated to Imaera. The statue is identical to that in the other Cleric Guilds. It is considered a holy shrine.

[Cleric Guild, Hall of Lessons]
Surrounded by a circle of arctic flowers and plants placed lovingly in pots of sparkling blue crystal, a statue of a woman clad in robes of leaves stands to the northwest. A blue-tinted glow filters down from high above, and the air swims with the scent of blooming flowers. In front of the statue is a wooden altar, draped carefully with long, twining vines and delicate iceblossoms.

>look altar
Carved from blocks of thick dark monir, the altar is liberally draped with a deep green vine. Beautiful iceblossoms are tied randomly onto the vine, both plants wrapping around the altar in a loving embrace. Subtly engraved upon the face of the altar is a golden sheaf of grain.

>read tome
In the Common language, it reads:
"Life is abundant throughout the realms. Aid the life wherever you journey, and you aid Imaera, the wife of Eonak."
