There is no fucking way that there is really a Dungeons and Dragons god named Merikka, is there? If there was, would he be the god of fireworks, bald eagles, flags, and bragging about freedom while simultaneously reading his citizens' emails and accumulating insane amounts of debt?
Well, it turns out that there is a deity by this name. Merikka is the goddess of farming and agriculture. Her holy symbol is a basket of grain and a long scroll. Merikka is described as a quiet, gray-haired woman of faded beauty, carrying a basket of grain and holding a scroll, though her image in her temple in the village of Orlane is that of a beautiful young woman. Merikka is obsessed with dates and cycles. Merikka is a cousin of Velnius, Atroa, Sotillion, Wenta, and Telchur. She reports to Cyndor, who helps her coordinate the proper times to plant and harvest with the gods of the seasons. Merikka was imprisoned for some years in the Godtrap beneath Castle Greyhawk by the archmage Zagyg, but is now free. She resents chaotic gods and any who would disrupt her work. And if anyone could provide citations for any of this shit, that would be great.
