“‘Hear! That which you warred for it gone. In its place is my own creation under my own authority. This Blessed Great Blue is my patronage and you will have no part in it! Lest you soil my sacred waves, I will cause them to crash onto your lands and drown your own creations. End your fighting: the seas are mine.’
Thus she spake from the Merciful Deep.”
- Yamasatran oral tradition

The Cultus of Vautu    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Regional)

“And into World they cast him, deep below, beneath stone and water and flame.  In World’s Heart, doth gape the Peccant Maw, yet starved as the hunger grows unabated.  Terror, irony, horror, farce!  That which ends all is trapped beneath all.”
-The Tale of the Maw, “The Enslavement of the Devourer”

An ancient cult, the Vautuans worship their god with zeal.  Chaos is their sacrament, death their prayer.  Will the followers of the Gaping Maw free their god and destroy the world?

The Mirrored Hands    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Country/ State)

I will be the blade that shines by the holy suns.
I will be the shield that protects by the darkened shadows.

I will be faithful to the edicts of my brethren.
Above no other will I be fully given to but the gods and my brethren.
I will be pure and woe to those who are not true.

- Mirrored Hand Ceremonial Edict

The Priests of Droven    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Regional)

The Priests of Droven are as near a thing the Dwarf city states of the Ven (Barrier) Mountains have to a central government. They enforce laws, arbitrate disputes, monitor trade, intern the dead and in all ways keep chaos at bay.

Men of wisdom, gathering lore of ways to heal the sick and suffering, these monks are not really different from other orders of the same religion.

Faith of the True Civilization    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Regional)

Imagine a land to the East (or just Far Away) that trades with your lands with the occassional Caravan. This land is all about The Civilization: The Order of Things, The Celestial Buracracy, The Mantle of Heaven, and clerical abilities defining who was in charge (due to their being touched by the Gods).

The Lost Gods    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (World Wide)

Gods and Deities. The waking gods have tales and stories aplenty. Books and sermons dedicated to their prayers and beliefs fill many halls of many religious centers and the devout. Continued tales of their deeds abound fill those trying to fill the followers of their gods to the correct path of life. But what of the gods thought lost or who have died over the eons? Are they dead or just sleeping, staying out of sight from the eyes and prayers of man? Only the true dreams know the real answer.

Imagine a land to the East (or just Far Away) that trades with your lands with the occasional Caravan. This land is all about The Civilization: The Order of Things, The Celestial Bureaucracy, The Mantle of Heaven, and clerical abilities defining who was in charge (due to their being touched by the Gods). The Buracracy spoke with the voice of the Gods and could channel their power.  Imagine what happens when their Gods die.

One thing that has been stressed over and over on this site is that fantasy can emulate reality. There are so many different real world events that can be transformed into gaming material that one should literally never run out of new content.

Balance Rather than Conflict

       By: Spark

A world based not on light and dark in conflict, but light and dark in balance. A world governed by a giver and a taker, rather than a creator and a destroyer. A world where evil is as much a corruption of light as it is darkness. Conflict arises out of a will to upset the balance.
