Quest - Religions and Cults



Original Quest from March 6, 2013 to April 6, 2013

As unanimously decided by ChatBot, the quest has begun!

What holds more power over a human heart than fear of the unknown?  For this quest we seek answers to the eternal questions of life and death, sin and deliverance.  Whether you design an entire belief system or simply a backwater cult , modern or ancient, sci-fi or steampunk -- make your religion sing.  Gods and prophets, demons, con-artists and mystic rites; from the humblest spirit to the greatest miracle, anything goes!   This is your chance to put a new spin or twist on religion, and give us something we haven't seen before.

The Players Cult    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (World Wide)

"If you take out all the bullshit about the machines and the crappy prophecy, The Matrix was pretty close to the truth.  Just think about it for awhile and you'll see how much sense it makes.  And really, if you were trapped in a game and couldn't wake up, wouldn't you want to know the truth?  So you could do something about it?"

" . . . Still haven't convinced you, huh?  Here, tell you what: I'll give you my card.  Whenever you feel like learning the real truth of this world, give me a call.  I'll show you the ropes."

Mortideanism    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Regional)

"Death. What happens when one dies? A question that all civilized peoples have tried to answer. Some claim you go to a place where you are rewarded or punished based on what you do when you're alive. Some claim that you a simply reincarnated.

"They are all wrong. The truth is that we are in a state of transformation. Humans are simply in a complicated version of a caterpillar in a chrysalis. We started as mere animi. Now we are humans. And just like the caterpillar turns into something grander after its time in a chrysalis, we become something grander when we die.

"You see, we become gods."

The Other Side    Plots  (Divine/ Spirit)   (Defining)
Kovel the fighter sat at the bar table with his sorcerous companion, Errat, and and the roguish woman, Vena. Laughing, they raised their drinks to a succesful heist - they were all much richer after robbing and slaying the fat merchant earlier on the road and were celebrating a job well done. But deeds such as this attract the attention of many people.
Some hours into their night, a woman approached the friends with a friendly smile, "Greetings Kovel. Good eve, Vena and Errat. I wish to have a word with you. Yes, I know your names. We have been watching you for some time, and we like what we see. I am here to offer you a part in something great. And yes; there will be money. You will have power. Come with me; let us talk."

The Cult of Equilibrium    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Regional)

What started as a small movement up in the Atlas mountains has in recent times grown in popularity among the commoners and excentric nobles of the nearby fiefdoms. This movement believes in maintaining the balance in all things. This also applies to good versus evil.

Equilibrium Cultists therefore worship two opposing deities of their choice, and try the best they can to follow the commandments given from both deities, even when they contradict eachother.
