How does double/triplestrike interact with ToM?

Temple of Meraveran gives Melee +1. Thus the creature will only get the extra die on the first attack of the action as per the regular Melee +x rules.

I don't think that's the part he's talking about.

I think it would get 3 valor if your creature suffers damage from all 3 swings of a triple-strike. But I'm pretty much guessing, and my guesses are often wrong. Would love to hear an official answer.

I would also believe that you would get a valor for each of the 3 strikes that connects. Because each strike goes through the same defense steps, each strike is a different attack.

Ah, I am sorry I misunderstood!  Yes, it says "when a creature you control is attacked and damaged by an enemy creature..."  Which would indicate every time with no limit.  So a hydra triple striking, a counterstrike, a zone attack, a sweeping or double strike would all grant as many tokens as there are attacks made against creatures you control.  This is slightly different than "Friendly creatures" so in a team game you would not get tokens for your ally's creatures being attacked--only your own.

Just chiming in that the previous posters are correct. The temple gets valor every time one of your creatures is attacked, and that includes every strike from double/triplestrike attacks.
