Popular among sailors and tradesmans, the Church of Melora have very little in the way of an organized religion. Consisting of mostly small shrines dotting the coastal areas of the map, the religion is quite popular with the common folk. Nearly all persons, upon setting on a sailing voyage, give an offering to the goddess of the wilderness and the sea. Each shrine is head by a priest/priestess of Melora and a small number of assistants. They mostly keep the shrine upkept and receive any offerings given. These are often used to help the poor or promote Melora's ideals.

Melora is for obvious reasons opposed to the Church of Erathis and all it stands for. They believe that the plundering of this lands natural resources are an affront to nature and should stop. This of course is not a popular view with the majority of the powerful peoples in the area. This attitude has bred rumors that some extremists in the church have even gone so far as to sabotage or even outright attack expansionist outposts or operations. Whether this is true or not is anybodies guess.
