Quote:
What roles do a selection of deities play? God is the Omniscient, Omnipotent, and all powerful.
Are there special days for the deities? Yes, there are special celebrations. The CCoD goes by the lunar calendar, so their year is different from ours. Here are some celebrations that take place during the year:
- Mafikumaf (Halloween)


Thank you for your answers! ^_^ It looks quite interesting.

Just so you know all powerful is basically the same as omnipotent.

And I am wondering why they have Halloween? Is there any history or reason for it? Or is it more of a day where they worship the dead and ones who have passed away? (As in place of, trick or treating?)

You are right. "Mafikumaf" literally means "Day of the Veil", and that is taken from some of the earlier pagan religions that were once in the area.

OFF-TOPIC: Strangemagic, did you edit my post because it was so long Razz

EDIT: I don't think I can. I'm really sorry. Would you like to repost it??

QINTARIST

Qintarist derived from the ancient polytheist cults of the ancient inhabitants of the island of what is now The Republic of Ùrobas. These people believed in multiple deities, one for almost every problem they faced.

Among these many deities, are Tórol the God of war, Elymna the Goddess of beauty and Qintara himself, the father of all deities: the high God of the people.

These inhabitants used to worship at sites called Perrus Granuns. Literally old Ùrobasican for Big Rocks. At the sites were a dolmen set upon a grand altar. The offerings would be set alight in the centre of these dolmens as it was usually the highest point.

Over the years, many of the deities were lost but there are still dozens of identifiable ones who are now still used by the people of Ùrobas. They now congregate once fortnightly at more modern sites now known as Grañaliós - literally place which is great. These places preserve the dolmen rock but offerings are now placed in a long tray inside the small temples which are next to the sites.

These deities are highly respected and one may only choose 2 deities at one time. If these congregations cannot take place, there are shrines in every town and city. Fortnightly, the people will come to these shrines and place offerings into the tray or take 5 minutes to pray and reflect whilst they kneel before the statue of their deities.

These deities are set in a mystical world where war has ravaged - and each deity has a specific offering type and specific role. As mentioned above, here are some of the surviving deities.

Qintara - He is the father of all deities but isn't considered one, as all people have him as their default lord. He is known for his compassion and courage when fending off the minions of evil in a great war which ravaged the fantasy world of Ae Tyldar - literally world of Ae Tyl - Ae Tyllans are the name of the ancestral tribes of whom the Ùrobasican people descend.

Offering: Fruit, nothing (He is compassionate)

Blessings: Overall protection and good will.

Tórol - Son of Tórolir - Qintara's brother and he is the God of war. Though don't let that make him sound evil, coz he's not. He is the God of war as in protector of the Ae Tyldar kingdom and so he is considered a hero. He is strong but abit greedy.

Offerings: Blood (lols), stone of Ilnoktar (a common stone found in Ùrobas - granite like stone)

Blessings: Strength and courage in a personal conflict.

Elymna - Daughter of Qintara and Kaenora, she is a gentle deity yet she has the fighting spirit of her father and uncle. Elymna was said to have been wounded during the Great war - by an arrow by the dark Lord Saeros. This drained her beauty and so by offering to her, her beauty is restored.

Offerings: Flowers or any plant.

Blessings: A beautiful soul, cleanses the evil.

Thareltor - God of culinary in general. He is the one who cooks the meals for all the deities and so needs your help with the ingredients.

Offerings: Culinary objects, spices, cutlery.

Blessings: Patience and cleanse your food of evil.

Terenyur - Goddess of health. She is the mother of Thareltor and cousin of Tyrretha. She will bless you with health.

Offerings: Food, a prayer or two - even if you help her son.

Blessings: Good health

Tyrretha - She is the Goddess of wisdom, and the cousin of Terenyur. She will grant you knowledge in not just education but in life.

Offerings: A page of prayers.

Blessings: Knowledge in general and encouragement to think twice in life.

What is the name of your conreligion(s)? Adpihi.
What type of religion is it? Monotheism (mostly).
Are there any Gods in your conreligion(s)? Exactly one (mostly).
Are there any Goddesses in your conreligion(s)? Each believer makes up his/her own mind whether the Deity is a God or a Goddess or whatever.
How many deities do you have? Each believer is assumed to have exactly one; and it is assumed that each believer's deity is the same as every other believer's deity. For the most part these assumptions are accurate.
How highly regarded are they in the conculture? Pretty highly.
How are they worshipped? Mostly in private; mostly however the believer thinks he or she should.
Are there special days for the deities? Depends on the believer.
What or who helps alongside the deities? (angels/elves/fairies/etc) This also depends on the believer. But for some believers, angels or saints may take the place of the pantheon a polytheist would have.

Are there and Goddesses in your conreligion(s)? In a way, they're in the form of girls (aged 5-12 years), and each one represents a feeling or a thing (i.e.: Life,Proud Death, Happiness, etc.). They appear to be normal people, but they're immortal.

Is the highest deity a God or a Goddess?
Who is the highest deity?
What roles do a selection of deities play? If a person is acting a certain way, they are said to be spending time with the deity that most represent the way the person is acting. Also, when a person dies, the deity of death "recycles" the body and "resets" the mind.
How many deities do you have? Lots.
How highly regarded are they in the conculture? It depends on the person. Not everybody believes in the deities, but they are a big part of the culture; it's they're equivalent of fairy tales.
How are they worshipped?
Are there special days for the deities? Days, months, and seasons are all naked after deities, though there are some special holidays.
What or who helps alongside the deities? (angels/elves/fairies/etc)

What is the name of your conreligion(s)?

It doesn't have any. In the twin kingdoms of Alirdyse and Layse religion is almost non existant after a war ended. There are some traces of religious beliefs but not too many or they don't tell you anything about it in public.

What type of religion is it? (Monotheism/Polytheism/Monism/etc)

There are 3 Principles, Forces or Gods (depending on a person's viewpoint):

Order, Chaos and Inspiration aka Temptation. All of them are equally powerful.

Are there any Gods in your conreligion(s)?
Are there any Goddesses in your conreligion(s)?
If there is only one God and Goddess, which one is seen as more important?
Is the highest deity a God or a Goddess?
What roles do a selection of deities play?

See above or there is no straight answer.

How many deities do you have?

3, if you really wanna call them deities.

How highly regarded are they in the conculture?

Highly regarded but not in public at this moment.

How are they worshiped?

That's a mystery.

Are there special days for the deities?

The same here. Officially they don't have the king's permission to celebrate anything like that in public or private assemblies.

What or who helps alongside the deities? (angels/elves/fairies/etc)

Anyone, all beings can be "manipulated" by any of them, there are some affinities but they wouldn't stop a not so highly regarded "deity" to make good use of their abilities or their lives...

--- --- ---

If they lived in our world or visited us, these would be the names of our festivities.

Christmas – Nivesdaya (lit. a birth)
Christmas eve – Ananivesdaya (lit. before a birth)
May Day(?) - Nirsekema (lit. worker's (free) time)

New Year's Day isn't a festivity but a solemn royal event. Common people may not work because they may like to visit the capital or Kegaenise (in this case the Relganzise) and it would last 3 days, the longest festivity in the twin kingdoms.

Well, actually Nirsekema is celebrated in the twin kingdoms and it resembles a Worker's and a Father's Day.

Ɣolhuks faith:

What is the name of your conreligion(s)?
It can be called Rótvai, meaning "way of God", especially to contrast with other religions. Often it is referred to simply as Samtur (worship) or Žadloi (faith), which can also be used generically. Sometimes Ňai Žadloi (the faith) is used as another specific term.

What type of religion is it? (Monotheism/Polytheism/Monism/etc)
Monotheism or polytheism, depending on how you look at it. This difference in interpretation is the basis for different sects and subdivisions.

Is the highest deity a God or a Goddess?
Who is the highest deity?
The highest (or only) deity is Rót. Or, most formally, Rót veslá Kúša šaň, Cálṭ wimcekuks om len (glorious God in Heaven, unending Ruler of earth). Rót is not seen as gendered. In most depictions it is a face with many, many arms.

Are there any Gods in your conreligion(s)?
Are there and Goddesses in your conreligion(s)?
There are figures worshiped called Herón, Selúž and Krél (and occasionally others), which may or may not be gods/goddesses. In some interpretations they are seen as minor deities, sharing Rót's burden of controlling the universe and maintaining cosmic order. Rót is their leader, but does not usually interfere with their tasks. Other sects hold that Rót is the only god and that these figures are like angels, sent to watch over humanity while Rót controls the universe alone. Here Rót has supreme power in nature and the cosmos, but cannot effect humans directly. It is the purpose of Herón and others to guide humanity to an understanding of Rót. There are also some cults based around these figures (and some around ones that are absent in mainstream faith), but they are unpopular and often scorned.

How many deities do you have?
One, or four, or up to a few hundred.

More will be posted soon.

What is the name of your conreligion(s)?
I suppose they'd just call it "Sāl Jarevi" or "Sūl Jarevi" (Our Faith/Belief) depending on who they are talking to (inclusive/exclusive "our")

What type of religion is it? (Monotheism/Polytheism/Monism/etc)
The official orthodox variant, accepted by the state, is strictly Monotheistic, but there is room for polytheistic sects (more on that later)

Are there any Gods in your conreligion(s)?
Yes, Fāvi (meaning "God"), which is the only deity in the official variant. There is, however, an unworldly being, called Becrǣzťinsi/Vilgardu/Hvarqæ (Father of animals/Covetous/He who has been cut), depending on the context. Some worship him as a god, and in return get powers of illusion (since he is also called a master of lies).

Are there and Goddesses in your conreligion(s)?
There is a female unworldly being, called Kæitglœsťinse (mother of all blood), which is not considered a deity by the monotheistic Tashayans but is considered a goddess (or indeed, THE goddess) by some sects, especially in the Western parts of the country, where the relationship with neighbouring Bvoxo (a strictly matriarchic people) is stronger than elsewhere. Some would argue that the Bvoxo people indeed worship Kæitglœsťinse, but I'm not yet sure if that is really the case, since I don't yet know too much about their religion.

If there is only one God and Goddess, which one is seen as more important?
Fāvi, since he is officially the only real God

What roles do a selection of deities play?
At the moment I know of two otherworldly beings (not considered deities by the official religion), who I have already mentioned. Becrǣzťinsi started off as the creator of all animals (under Fāvi's rule and supervision), but he was too greedy and thus was punished. He represents all that is evil in the world ever since.
On the other hand, Kæitglœsťinse is the motherly component of creation, although she herself has been created by Fāvi, and therefore isn't considered a deity. Nor is she human, although she is the one who gives birth to the first humans.

How highly regarded are they in the conculture?
Everything revolves around Fāvi, since the country is a diarchic theocracy, established directly by him.

How are they worshipped?
One could argue that there aren't any secular rituals – every ritual ever performed (celebrations, crownings, coming of age, everything) is performed at the Temple and is religious. Otherwise there are regular celebrations held in the Temple, as well as particular holidays and so on.

Are there special days for the deities?
No. There is no need, because everything revolves around God. There are days to commemorate the otherworldly beings and their role in the order of things, as well as historic/religious happenings (since all their history has a religious aspect to it)

What or who helps alongside the deities? (angels/elves/fairies/etc)
No one. Since he is omnipotent and since humans are considered his offspring, the only helpers he needs are the Diarchs (the King/Queen and the High Priest)

What is the name of your conreligion(s)? Adpihi

What type of religion is it? (Monotheism/Polytheism/Monism/etc) Monotheism mostly; for some, more of a henotheistic monolatry.

Are there any Gods in your conreligion(s)? Just the one, for most.

Are there and Goddesses in your conreligion(s)? Some view the only worshipped deity as a goddess, some as a god, and some don't care.

If there is only one God and Goddess, which one is seen as more important? The only deity with any oomph or clout is thought to be the same for all believers, but no one really minds whether others think S/He's a god or a goddess or both or neither or sometimes one and sometimes the other.

Is the highest deity a God or a Goddess? Yes, probably. Wink

Who is the highest deity? Some worshippers have a name for Him/Her/It/Whatever and some don't; those who have a name may not all have the same name.

What roles do a selection of deities play? Those who think there are also other deities have different roles for them. However nobody worships any other deities.

How many deities do you have? The lesser deities in some believers' beliefs may correspond to the angels in other believers' beliefs; it's more a difference in terminology than in belief.

How highly regarded are they in the conculture? In Adpihi the chief or only deity is extremely highly regarded. In Reptigan there's more of a trend toward secularism, but the believers and worshippers are still highly regarded, so belief and worship are as well.

How are they worshipped? By prayer and obedience, mostly; each believer/worshipper has his/her own way(s) of worshipping.

Are there special days for the deities? Depends on the believer/worshipper.

What or who helps alongside the deities? (angels/elves/fairies/etc) There are many different beliefs; most people find few, if any, others whose beliefs are exactly the same. Disregarding minor differences, there may be large groups whose beliefs are substantially similar, but there are still very many such groups. The differences which actually exist are more numerous than the differences which people think exist. Some people believe only people can "assist" God; others believe in angels. Some folks believe in "demons" (that is, spirits who originate as spirits and who ordinarily and originally don't inhabit corporeal bodies); some such "demons" are neutral (e.g. "elementals", for those who believe in them), having essentially the same relationship to God that humans have; others serve God (these are the "angels"). Some folks believe in "ghosts", spirits whose origin is in a living body, and perhaps whose usual state is animating such a body; for some of these believers, "angels" are such "ghosts", and some of those believers don't believe in the aforementioned "demons". For those who believe in "elves" and/or "fairies" etc., some think of them as "demons" and some think of them as simply other intelligent species.

In Reptigan the beliefs in the supernatural are declining and simplifying. For the most part only the God himself/herself/itself is actually believed in; the non-human intelligent species are known to factually exist and are natural rather than supernatural or preternatural; the existence of disembodied spirits is mostly limited to hard-copied AI software between hardware installations which can execute it; and so on.



Additional Question: If your believers believe in angels, are these angels capable of pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and/or sloth? If so, are there any fallen angels? Answers for Adpihi: for some believers, no and no; for some, yes and no; and for some, yes and yes.
