The Articulate Plane
Goddess of Knowledge and Prophecy. Unlike Vecna, Ioun seeks to spread knowledge to the world and eliminate secrets. She makes her home in Havastar, the Bright City, in a white tower tended to by an army of scholars. She leaves the tower frequently on journeys to secluded locations at the far edges of the planes.
Ioun was deeply grateful to the mortals for their aid in ending the war with the primordials; she showed her thanks with the gift of five fist-sized stones that shone with the light of one thousand suns and were said to contain the world’s knowledge for those with the fortitude to withstand their blinding light. To safeguard these holy stones, Ioun’s church established orders of holy knights and religious scholars, the former to protect the stones and ensure their access to any and
all who would learn, and the latter to tease forth their mysteries.
Ioun is believed to travel through time at will, documenting everything she learns.
