1) Make up a religion.
2) Make up some sort of symbol. Not too complicated, it must fit in really small spaces.
3) Think about where it is popular. An island, your whole nation?
4) Post the information here, and I'll try to put it on the map.
I don't know really about Nuism, if Shlup could correct me where she thinks I'm wrong.

Not a religion per say, but then again none of my people worship dieties as we're not that sort of folks. However Defiantism is the name for our anti Gods semi war state of belief. Not Aethism, Defiantism accepts that there are many Gods and Goddesses and other dieties out there, and that is the problem, these things are fickle and not fit to weild the power of creation, and must be stopped.

Edit: Symbol, as uploading doesn't seem to be allowing me to link an image, the symbol for Defiantism is viewable as the attatchment.


A red background would be used for the region of this belief if possible.

Vertianity - loose set of religious beliefs held by people indigenous to the Verdantian continent. Haven't hashed out the details yet. Concerns the two mountain peaks in Fiorenseo, Vedriet and Sacersanct.

Symbol - V. Plain and simple.

I put that there because there wasn't anything there. Zhîndo is basically what Shinto became after 500 years in a new world. Just give me some information on the religious profile of your islands, and I'll add it. :p

I want to say that you can't force everyone in your nation or region to not have any religion. You can however, have no official religion for your nation, but that doesn't mean that you won't allow religion, because the people who live in your nation will eventually want to believe in something to explain how they got their and whatnot.

Anyway, most people will be mostly pagans of some sort, or they can believe like the native americans and think that each creature serves a purpose.

He's not. He's simply providing ideas, which I like. If you have a problem with it, deal with it.

Edit: If you don't like his idea, why don't you provide something to counter Nait's idea?

Anyway, I want to make a proposal for a religion.
Protonubism. It's sorta like the religion of the native americans. They mostly believe that everything around (creature, land, water, etc) serves a major purpose on Eizon. They hunt and respect the land. Mostly are nomads that travel and hunt a special creature.

This religion should be on the southern coast of Myridia, along the plains.

The symbol, I'll attach that.

While my people can worship in whatever religion they want, it seems that the majority of my nation worships Aoifism. (they worship Aoife, the moon goddess)

Also the symbol looks something a little like this picture I found.

Ok so I'm a little less stropy now, anyways I shall work out religion soon, its gonna be kind of complex but easy.

I'll try and explain a bit now. Theres gonna be 4 sects of the main religion and each island is gonna have its own sect, kindda like to show how their all very different from each other, if I was in a writing mood I'd write you a really long speal and so forth.

Nait favour please :D Can you make me up a symbol for this religion and then make 4 variaitions, if you can't thats ok anyway, oh and then add them to the map placing whichever one on each map, thankies very mucho in advance :D :love:

Would you rather enjoy a more fantasy-feel mark for Anarchy, like the Caos infenatus eight-pointed arrow star? You can see it on the map. I stole it from Moorcock, who uses it for Chaos. It's a "ALL POSSIBILITES ALL THE TIME" sign.

http://altreligion.about.com/library/glossary/symbols/bldefschaoswheel.htm

Of course, I think that no wide-spread religion should spread anarchy if the local government wants to stay in power. :D

Anarchy = Power of none.
Acracy = Government by no one.

That's why the Chaos Star on the religious map is only a small "icon", not a large one. :D

Ok I haven't worked out the exact history of the religion yet, I'm still working on it but mleh.

Heres the split up of the religion and also the symbols it uses:

Also Nait I'll let you chose the religion for Hermes, you can make it the religion it was before or one of the 3 sects I've devised for the main religion of that region :)

Okay, Myst's main religion is in fact a conglomerate of several gods/goddesses being worshipped, but it's called Mystism. I'll get back to y'all on the specific Gods and Goddesses, though. Deep BLue Background on the map, and my symbol is enclosed.

Cultural. "Races" have religions no more than fuzzy eyebrows do. :mog:

Loony BoB

Races = Culture, given that they've arrived from different worlds... a lot of the religions would be based on those they had in prior worlds rather than being brand new.

Nuh uh, race != culture.

This is one of the reasons I feel that adding races was a bad idea. First off, no one's going to bother with them, and second, if you're going to do races, do them properly. Now, we basically have just bland "humans" from other worlds, with no identity, no culture, no religion. At all. The small things we have been able to catch are basically rehashes of Tolkien - and the sand-people haven't even got that.

EDIT:

And to clarify, each race should, like humans, have literally thousands of languages and even more religions. Cultures, identities! You can't just create an "Elven culture" to embrace all elves. That would be like creating a single "Human culture", where the differences between the peoples of the world are eroded into simple masks.

It's not English, either. *nitpicks*

Anyway, I find the impossible to be pretty fun. The good thing about this game is that we don't need to regulate absolutely everything. If we had to stick to realistic things, then we wouldn't be allowed to use the same language, and magic would be out of the question.

But frankly, I don't like the idea of getting in to another argument about this, so I'll leave you to draw up complex resource maps. :D

Nait
08-27-2004, 09:19 PM
. If we had to stick to realistic things, then we wouldn't be allowed to use the same language, and magic would be out of the question.


Thanks for reminding me, the language question is next on the agenda.

First off, 500 years. Languages change a BUTTLOAD in that time. Even if you spoke english when you first came here... Not anymore! As you notice, the religion map has some hints off new languages, based on old ones. Finnish, of course, it unchanged because it's a dead language, with a few descendant languages.


MAGIC, on the other hand, cannot be REALISTIC. BUT, it CAN be internally consistent, and logical, be it either a hyper-mythological system of symbols and superstition, or something else.

Loony BoB
08-27-2004, 10:13 PM
Let's not delve into languages. I get headaches over some of thist stuff already and I don't want to put people off continuing this thing because they're getting similar headaches. Everyone in this world will be able to speak English as their main language through some kind of cool magic enchantment and any other language will be entirely optional.

Nait
08-27-2004, 10:27 PM
I meant language as an attribute, like the religions we have. Or the bloody races, even. Frex, what language do Elennanórëans speak? I'd guess on Quenya or something close.

On a side-note, when I was reading some Quenya stuff, again, I seeked out the meaning of that name. Means "The Land in the direction of Stars", a name for Numenór. The arrogance! >:O

How's this? a religion with 2 gods and 2 godesses. names: Multak, god of fire and war, Tilak, god of water, healing, and scholars, Zhervallis, Godess of women, fertility and the earth, and Khaisa, godess of thieves, travelers, merchants and wind. They each have a temple in cities and out in the countryside.

Sai Estranaians follow a pantheon order of gods, they belive in about 30 in total and each house hold favor a certain god/goddess. Also towns themselves favor a certain diety that is changed annually.

There are three layers of gods. Lesser dietys are weak gods who folio contains simple things like flowers, usually a spawn of a higher god. Then there are Moderate, these control higher things such as the tide, thent here are greater dietys who control the most powerul areas, such as light, death, life, the sea, nature etc. One of the greater gods is called the Lord of gods and controls them, called Argane.
The postive and greater gods are more Popular and the people belive a god is as strong as his peoples belief.

They call there religion Pathehism
