Oghma, also known as The Lord of Knowledge, Binder of what is known, is the Neutral Greater power of Bards, Inspiration, Invention, and Knowledge, of the Celtic pantheon and also within fictional world of the Forgotten Realms Dungeons & Dragons campaign setting.
He is leader of the Deities of Knowledge and Invention (including Milil, Deneir and Gond), and his homeplane in the 3rd Edition world is the House of Knowledge. His symbol is a Scroll and his favourite weapon is Mortal Strike (a longsword).
He grants the domains Charm, Knowledge, Luck, Travel and Trickery. His worshippers are artists, bards, cartographers, inventors, loremasters, sages, scholars, scribes and wizards — archivists (a generalist cleric prestige class) as well as erudites (variant-psion embracing all psionic knowledge) might pray to him, too. They can be of any alignment, unlike most neutral gods.
After the debacle in Zhentil Keep that saw Cyric take a blow to his power, he entrusted Rinda with the Cyrinishad, a book Cyric had her pen that converted anyone who read it or heard a reading of it to a fanatically loyal follower of Cyric. He also gave her a diamond amulet to render her invisible to all the gods, even Oghma himself.
- Companions of the Silver String
The Companions of the Silver String are heroic bards who acted valiantly at risk of their own lives in the service of the church of Oghma.
