One of the players in my campaign is playing a cleric of Selūne and is interested in FR fiction in which the Selūnite faith plays a role.

She has already read the old Advanced Dungeons & Dragons comic book series and Mistress of the Night.

Are there any other novels or short stories in which Selūne or her followers play a part?

-The stand-alone novel Mistress of the Night. It was a pretty good book overall, and one of the main characters is a priestess of Selune living in a temple of Selune, and the plot involves some stuff important to the faith.

While not entirely focusing on selūnites, the Brimstone Angels series has a few characters who are followers of Selūne, and Selūne plays a big role even from the background.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

Wyvern's Spur, Azure Bonds book 2, has a priestess of Selune towards the end of the novel (just finished the novel again, so definitely know about this).

There is also mention of the temple of Selune in the town of Immersea and some interesting interactions around the temple. Don't want to give too much away, but I think Wyvern's Spur is a good one. But then again as it is the middle of a trilogy, your player might as well read the other books in the trilogy.

Selune seems like an odd catch-all sort of goddess. A mixed-bag portfolio filled with otherwise unrelated things. A mixed-bag religion filled with otherwise unrelated followers. All loosely interconnected to Selune through some sort of relationship to the moon.

To me this makes her more interesting than typical and generic "deity of magic", "deity of love", "deity of war", "deity of craft" representations.

Acolyte Daker,

I want to say, thought it has been some time, that the novel Tymora's Luck had some good stuff in it for Selune.

Best regards,
