The Sword of Moon
Religion and Gods
Gods are a big part of this story, but this is not to be confused with a story about gods.
There are six gods that center around the mainstream religious beliefs of the world. They are:
- The Lady of the Two Moons
- The Lord of the Sun
- The Voice from the Shadows
- The King of Death
People do not believe in any one of these gods, they believe in all of them, but generally religious people will be devoted to only one, usually no more than two.
There are people who believe in other things as well.
Atheists are fairly common and accepted in the world. The gods are not very active in the world, generally preferring to interact with the world in subtle or indirect ways, so there are plenty of people who do not believe in them.
Cults exist and could very well be come across, usually these will be tribes of other races and things like that, however there is one called The Brilliant Enigma that performs acts like human sacrifices, ceremonial rape, and other acts that get them despised by the common population, with the belief that it will bring things like power, fortune, good health, crop growth, ect. They live in secret, and often times it’s members exist in cities and towns all over the world, and when a community find members of the Enigma the reactions vary but generally tend to involve imprisonment or execution, no matter who the person is.
