  梅瑞达Meriadar 是混种人之神。

2e<MMy.p056>梅瑞达Meriadar(中等神Intermediate God)

  梅瑞达Meriadar 是位耐心、忍耐和宽容之神。如同他的子民——混种人mongrelmen,他来源自许多种族,并经常被其他种族压迫,他们蓄意地误解甚至是蔑弃他们,梅瑞达不得不承受着许多类地精神明的敌意。为了他关心的领域——即那些没有被不可挽回地被引向邪恶的类地精,他被迫放弃了亚人和人类善良阵营诸神的帮助,因为与类地精生物们仇敌的神明们的任何良好关系,都将疏远那些他想拥入怀抱者。
Meriadar is a god of patience,long-suffering,and tolerance. As his people,the mongrelmen,are drawn from many races and are frequently oppressed by others who willfully misunderstand and even despise them,Meriadar has had to suffer the enmity of many goblinoid gods. He has been forced to spurn the help of good-aligned gods of demihumanity and humans,for his sphere of concern is those goblinoids who are not irrevocably drawn to evil,and any affinity with the gods of their enemies would alienate those he seeks to bring into his fold.

Meriadar is a god who seeks peaceful solutions to conflicts,but he is not well-disposed to chaos,and he has an antipathy for the bugbear gods. He especially prizes bugbears drawn to his service. While Meriadar is peaceful,he will oppose over- aggressive actions with "passive force";he uses protective and warding spells powerfully and very intelligently.

Meriadar espouses the practicality of arts and crafts as an important avenue for exploring peacefulness. Those who respect each others creativity and skill are unlikely to take up arms against each other,and different races have something to learn from each others' skills. His symbol,the decorated bowl,is both a craft and an art in its decoration,and it is used for sacramental feasting and the sharing of food. Since food is indispensable to life,those who share from Meriadar's dish to eat participate in a basic sharing of life;so how can they strive to bring each other death?

Meriadar's mongrelman priests and shamans use this symbol and its practical qualities as an exemplary attribute of their god and their religion. It also serves as a springboard for their philosophical concerns;mongrelman priests debate the quality of the "eternal now" as having its origins in spiritual parallels to the act of drawing sustenance,and the immediacy (and "nowness")of the most basic earthly drive,that of hunger. Despite the sometimes stifling quality of lawful neutrality,the priests concern themselves with some subtle spiritual and philosophical questions,and Meriadar smiles on this.

角色扮演指南Role-playing Notes:
Role-playing Notes:Meriadar's cult is unique in that any goblinoid or demihuman race can become a specialty priest and attain the same maximum experience level as that of mongrelmen. Of course,such priests are very rare,and usually exiles from their own race,but Meriadar's universal appeal to like- minded creatures ensure that this cult has a growing number of devotees in many worlds.

The deity himself is usually pacifistic and sends avatars for defensive purposes. Meriadar is never prepared to see mongrelmen wiped out as whole communities,although there is a quality of suffering-god about him and his cult which allows him to see oppression of mongrelmen as a road to higher spiritual understanding. His avatars are nonetheless forceful when confronted.

Omens from the god are frequently dispatched. They may take the form of automatic speech and speaking in tongues during philosophical debates,sudden artistic inspirations and auto-matic drawing and sculpting,bubblings in bowls of soup which release smoky vaporous symbolic images,and strange scents which alert mongrelmen to imminent danger.
[译注:automatic speech,auto-matic drawing and sculpting——指与本人意志无关,自发地说出不是自己的话或者写出不是自己意愿的内容的现象,在20世纪的人体特异功能研究中常见。究其实际只是脑洞太大抽抽了的表现之一。]

祭职者的职责Duties of the Priesthood

Meriadar's priests preach peace,but they also defend mongrelman communities. They are peaceful,but not pacifistic when threatened with force. They are "political" creatures,directed to get close to chiefs and determine "social" policy. They support hierarchies,laws,and established leaders unless these are grossly unjust. They preach the need to tolerate goblinods and other races,that all living things have their place,and the need for an ordered society and an ordered world.
