I like some of those ideas, it will definately change the start up of most games that I have played in this setting. Other settings don't tend to have such a hard time starting, but I think these are some real good ideas. Go to Comment
On some of the islands off the coast, the rites of the local fertility god revolve around ceremonial death and rebirth. The religion's priests have overcome this cycle, however: Each of them is actually undead, ceremonially slain and "reborn"! Their religion is otherwise unremarkable, being an odd offshoot of the mainland's religions. The priests vow to resist their undead cravings, seeing these as the "cycle of life" attempting to reclaim their spirits.
