5.
Here goes nothing...
San Somnus is described as having dark tanned skin, and wild long hair with a dark-greenish hue. Only his right eye is visible, the other is covered with hair. The eye is orange and glows faintly.
He is dressed in rags, and kinda looks like a troll, if not less ugly.

(remember guys one post per cascade. )

6. San is little more than a wispy wraith, for who can see the true face of a being who inhabits the world of dreams? Only his right eye is visible, the other is covered with his bluish-green hair. The eye is orange and glows faintly. Those who see him remark on a face of pained beauty trapped forever behind an insurmountable, unseen barrier. He is sometimes garbed in kingly robes, and other times he is dressed as the poorest of beggars. Some who's dreams wander to close to his domain say that they dreamed of a madman's laughter, others of their closest friend, or deceased family member. He has been known to grant wishes for memories or shared dreams, always smiling at the end of the dream, always that same, sad smile of a friend, forever lost.

Is that a new rule?

EDIT:
Aw, CRAP! I meant 6.
Any chance we can merge the descriptions, gnomes?

Sure, I'll merge our posts so that they make sense.

If you check the posts every couple of pages, you will see that Mr. 9 has clearly reminded people time and again that there is only one post per member per cascade and has ignored the second or third posts made by members on different cascades...

Wait... It was one per post - when someone makes a post after you, you are free to choose again. Or the rules have changed?

hey people, seems thigns have gotten a bit confused about cascades and posts. The rule is this: In a cascade, you may only give 1 answer per post, and you make not make a post directly behind the other. But after 2 other people have answered, you may post another answer.

now...tomorrow I'll post a summary of the religion-decisions so far.
For now: soem decisions are not made yet...one of them is:
THe Chariot (Haven) has no upgrades yet...

Cacsade

1. Which of these shall be Chariot upgrade?

War Chariot
OR
Centaur Chariot
OR
Pegasus/Sky/Flying/Winged/Air Chariot (flyer^^)
OR
Spiked/Blade Chariot
OR
Chariot Archers (shooter)

2. Choose the second chariot upgrade freely

3. Hebbin also needs a 2nd upgrade...

Hell's Serpent
OR
Devil Serpent
OR
Basilisk
OR
Serpent King
OR

Edited by Jiriki9 at 14:27, 15 Aug 2011.

so, now: a summary about:

Religon

Generally, it is not certain, which of the factions' beliefs is true - or if any of them is true at all, and if a god, or gods, or a spiritual energy, really exist - or are, well..."just a belief"...
Also, there is no common belief, but the factions have (in parts VERY) different beliefs, from atheism to all forms of Monotheism...

Abyss:
The Demonst (and their foolish mortal followers) all have the same principle of belief: Each Demon Tribes worships one "Duke of Hell" as their unholy, powerfull god, obeying their wishes without questioning, or much hesitation. There are quite many of Demon Tribes, and thus, a whole lot of Dukes of Hell - it is said they be 666, in fact. However, most are not really mighty (quite a number of them even less mighty than many beings who are not worshipped) and have not many followers. Of this mass, however, thirteen of the Dukes stick out, possessing immense powers, and a huge number of followers each. These are Asmodeus, Falthas (also named Avatar of Revenge), Kuruspar, Örtosh the Defiler and Vorl (----more to come!!!----)

Notable about the religion of the Demons is also the excessive use of any kind of sacrifice - as long as it's living beings, it can be sacrificed before a Duke, and almost all Dukes wish for a good number of sacrifices each day, to satisfy their lust for blood.

Dungeon:
The Dark, shadowy dungeon are not only a mysterious and scary place, they are also a strange palce, for foreign folk, in a different way: their inhabitants are Atheistic, not believing in anything supernatural, but only in the rules of the world and the power of Magic - and Might.

Fortress:
Dwarves are largely agnostic, meaning they aren't sure if a divine being really exists, nor do they really care.
Dwarves were introduced to religion via other races, and while not religious per se, dwarves are curiously enough a very superstituous people and thus felt it nescessary to include "by whatever guides us" and "by the powers that may be (I dunno)" in normal-day conversation, just to "ward off" anything omnipotent or just to wish each other good fortune.

Dwarven priests are "earthly guides" whose jobs are to meddle in other dwarves' affairs.
They have conducted a "morality codex" that contains everything from "which swear-words to use when minors are present",
to "personal beard hygiene 101".
They also act as judges within the dwarven juridical system.

Haven
THe most inhabitants of Haven are Monotheists. They belief that there is one God, who has no name (names are to earthly for HIM), but is, by most, only called "the Creator".
The Creator is believed to be a lovefull father for his people, the inhabitants of Haven, offering them salvation and forgiveness. On the other hand, it is common belief he wishes everyone on this world to worship him, and only him: Conversion is one of the main duty of a believer in the creator. This goes as far as war: though a loving father to those who believe in him, the creator has no problem with coming to the "infidels" with fire and blade, facing them with the decision: Believe or Die

It is notable that, however, there are some other figures nearly worshipped: the prophets, and the saints. THe prophets were historical figures, who are believed to have spoken the word of the Creator. Saints are historical figures as well, but unlike prophets, they are only declared saint after death, for different reasons, usually when having done something seen as very "worthy", and this declaration is allways an official one. Also saints do not necessarily hear and speak the words of the Creator.

For the hierarchy of the Creator's clergy, there is no single person as leader or central figure, but the religion's leading organ is the Tribunal of Ascendance, which composes of a pack (11-20) of clerics.

Keep
The mages and the other inhabitants of the keep are Monotheists, who belief in a male god they call "Skynver". Over all, he is believed not to care much for the world he created, not meddling often in mortal affairs. However, there is nonetheless some kind of "heaven", where good followers of him go after death - and a hell for "bad" and "evil" people as well.

This religion has a central leader, the High Quandarian (High Quandarienne if female) who is also the worldly leader of the large Main Nation of the keep faction. It is notable that the position is achievable for both men and women, and is reached by being elected by the Council of the Nine, which only comes into being for this single election.

Necromancers:
Most of the necromancers share a Monotheistic belief in the sexless god Mortis. There also is no other leader of that religion, all bow only before mortis, whose byname also is "The Mercyless Reaper", for mortis cares not for any mortal's deeds or regrets - they will take anyone, when their time has come.
Nevertheless, the Necromancers spend one entire hour each day in their prayers, sitting there in complete silence. Afterlife is commonly disputed by the necromancers, and the beliefs very different, form Death-Worshippers to those seeking to ultimately avoid it. However, it is kind of a common agreement that when you're Dead, you're dead. Nevertheless the necromancers prefer to be existent in this world.

Rampart:
The beings of the Forest believe in "the Nebulous", a spiritual Energy present in all the world. They do not pray to it, though, allthough some groups swear for meditation.

Sanctuary:
The Sanctuary People belief the world was created by spiritual energy, which still is present in the world. A long time ago, the Ancestor Rakala rose to a demi-godess, almost an embodiment of Nature, possessing a part of that spiritual energy. Now, she is the main object of worship in the Sanctuaries.
It is said that Rakalas greatest Strength are Magic, Cunning and Tricks - also form a mortal point of view she is awesome in everything, since she's a demi-godess after all - and that she is calm, but curious and even vengefull, if one in deed manages to make HER angry. Her followers believe, she still walks the earth, but she is both there and on a higher plane. Basically, she is in the "Heavens" and is sending a projection of herself to guide her people. She no longer exists in the world, but she does interact with it.

It should also be noted that the Sanctuary people believe that when you die, you become a part of the spiritual energy of the world again, and thus return into the circle of being...

Stronghold:
The wild people of Stronghold are so far the only known big Polytheistic Religion, having a Pantheon of many gods. All these gods, which are, by the way, in no family relatiosn to another (such is not the gods way), are led by the mighty Yahomen, god of War, Tactics, Sky, Wind and Hunting. He is said to be very muscular, tall, strong, hair is black, eyes are brown, He wears battle garb on his shoulder, but none on his chest. he has a spear made of air, an axe of stone, and a giant recurved bow that only he is powerful enough to pull back. When he appears to his followers, it is as a titan or a giant who walks from the clouds to the earth.
Another important deity is Rhyssh, goddess of law and the forge, garbed in (strangely) a Haven-esque style, she had a flowing robe that does not move with the wind, wears a blindfold over her eyes and caries what she forges to her chosen. If she appears without a weapon, then her blind gaze paralyzes her target as she smites them. The Goddess of order, law and the smith only appears to the most righteous and the most wicked, if at all. The blindfold is the only constant thing about her, as she changes as the law and her people change.
Also a wide-worshipped figure is the godess of Lust, Fertility and Fire, Lathane. She has long red hair, green eyes (flashing with innocence...), white clothes (not much that is ),a veeery nice body structure, is very sexy and has a white demonic smile.
And finally, but not least, there is San Somnus, god of Sleep, Dreams and Wishes. ----Merged Description of gnomes and avi to be here----




Next question...I had an idea poppin ginto my mind...what about a "new" believe having spread in the last short time (short in terms of history, it should be quite some years at least, better some decades), being overfactional and getting a number of followers? Shall such a religion be in. (could maybe be a (part of a) storyline for some campaign/s)

Yes

No

why is it most logical?

anyway...about the worshipped person/s

One person
OR
a group of persons
OR
a certain, very rare species (this is a bit of variation for person cult but it just popped into my hand)
OR
few, different persons or small groups (they started out as one group, but split up)

Logical, because stuff like that happened like a lot. A single person declares to be the new messiah, messenger, some stupid thing like that and then we have a new cult and so on.

Yeah, that sounds fitting. Allthough this time it's a species, not a single messiah.

well, about that species...

they haven't appeared yet, there are, by know, only those seen who spread their word (and swear that they are great!)
OR
they have only appeared recently, after they fellowers spread their word for a while
OR
they have only appeared recently, and their appereance created the religion around them
OR
they have been here quite a long while, but only recently "recognized" as the heavenly species^^
