Melanesia is the goddess of fertility and potential. She represents the beginning of the life cycle, but is also worshiped by merchants hopeful for success. She is a companion and consort of Deiter. In Dunmaerik, she is also worshiped as a rain goddess.
Melanesia is depicted as a beautiful woman in the second trimester of pregnancy, often topless and wearing only a loose white skirt. She is depicted as having straight, black hair, azure eyes, full breasts and wide hips.

The clergy serves in similar roles as Deiter's priests during the spring planting season, but also serve as marriage counselors, midwives, and (in some cases) surrogates for those who cannot conceive.
The Church celebrates few holy days beyond the beginning of spring and the last harvest of the fall. The individual ceremonies are largely left up to the priest conducting them, but most often include communion, blessings, all marked within great festivity and sexual celebration.
A Priest of Melanesia is known as a Sower, regardless of gender. Most priests are human females, though no restriction exists.

- A man in Sunnymead has presented himself as a Sower, but appears to be using the title for the purpose of sleeping with the young women of the town.
