In many campaign settings for the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, Surminare is the selkie deity of beauty and peace.

Publication history[edit]

Surminare was first detailed in the book Monster Mythology (1992), including details about her priesthood.[1] Her role in the cosmology of the Planescape campaign setting was described in On Hallowed Ground (1996).[2]


Surminare appears as a selkie with silver-streaked golden fur and brilliant blue eyes. She can also appear as a sea elf or a richly dressed beautiful human female.


Surminare is a member of the asathalfinare.


Surminare's realm of Selkies' Grotto can be found on the plane of Elysium. She does not leave the waters of Thalasia, and keeps a carefully obscured lair there, hidden by seaweeds, mazes, and false cavern complexes.



Surminare's shamans always defer to the venerable selkie leaders.
