Ioun is the goddess of knowledge, skill, and prophecy. Sages, seers, and tacticians revere her, as do all who live by their knowledge and mental power. Corellon is the patron of arcane magic, but Ioun is the patron of its study. Libraries and wizard academies are built in her name. Her commands are also teachings:
- Seek the perfection of your mind by bringing reason, perception, and emotion into balance with one another.
- Accumulate, preserve, and distribute knowledge in all forms. Pursue education, build libraries, and seek out lost and ancient lore.
- Be watchful at all times for the followers of Vecna, who seek to control knowledge and keep secrets. Oppose their schemes, unmask their secrets, and blind them with the light of truth and reason.
: Fate, Knowledge, Skill
Ioun is followed in many different lands, and her largest temple is the Hall of Seven Cascades in Atria. She is also widely worshipped in Twilight’s Dale and Irdannon. Many libraries and arcane schools throughout Andrannar also double as shrines and churches to Ioun.
