The Goddess of life, fertility, nature and healing.
After the human abduction from Earth, she was the first goddess to be worshiped by the still enslaved humans who wished to lessen the pain inflicted on their tired bodies. In the current day, she is worshiped by a lot of people. Mainly farmers who wish for better crops, but also pregnant women, young couples and sick people.
The clergy of Emer is exclusively female. Temples of Emer are generally structured with the novices at the bottom, the nuns to do all the menial tasks, the prioress acting as the head of a temple and the abbess being at the top. Typically, the future abbess is chosen by the current abbess who will receive a vision from Emer. The current abbess will then travel to meet the woman from her visions and take her under her tutelage. Typically, only the Abbess of a temple has the ability to weave aether.
Temples of Emer, rather than purely a place of worship, are more like places of services done in the name of Emer. A temple of Emer will typically include a hospital, an orphanage and a garden. The temples earn money by charging a small amount for every of their services.
Emer’s symbol is a blooming tree.
God of truth, loyalty, order and justice.
Ildir is worshipped by lawmen, bounty hunters, knights but also scholars (while he’s not the god of learning, discerning the truth from lies in old texts sometimes requires divine inspiration). Soldiers are also often required to worship Ildir to ensure loyalty.
In addition to the militant Order of the Hammer who hunt criminals, countless bounty hunters, more spurred by gold than divine blessing, seek those criminals as well for the reward. The Order of Iron is the more administrative part of the cult, with a large part of human judges openly worshipping Ildir.
It is very important to note that a “law of Ildir” doesn’t exist. Judges, lawmen, government officials, anyone worshipping Ildir will still follow the laws set by the country they’re in. However, Ildir will inspire them to see the right from wrong and to take the right decision. Should a new law break the “order” that the cult members seek, it is up to the members of the order to inspire change, sometimes spurred by divine vision.
Ildir not only inspires lawmen, but any kind of contract made. Breaking a contract made under the name of Ildir will very quickly bring the attention of the Order of the Hammer.
The symbol of Ildir is the raised hand.
God of luck, fortune and fate.
Raadiya, along with Emer, is one of the oldest gods. Almost every human on Eidon-Esune worships Him to some degree, and it’s not unheard of for other races to worship him as well.
The temples of Raadiya welcomes all without distinction, for Raadiya is blind, so are his priests and priestesses (not literally, but it is strongly believed that being blind improves the ability to read fates. As such, most priests and priestesses usually wear a headband to cover their eyes).
From the peasant wishing to know if weather will be clement to his crops next year to kings seeking to know if their reign will be successful, everyone is a subject of Raadiya’s whims. As such, Raadiya’s temples are usually extremely wealthy due to all the donations. Raadiya is a fickle god, granting his boons and removing them seemingly at random.
Goddess of artists, craftsmen, industry and inspiration.
Supposedly, Aoni is the goddess who crafted each god’s attributes. Ildir’s iron hand, Raadiya’s balance, Camalus’ sword are relics of the highest order, only ever witnessed in religious fever dreams yet having the same description through the ages.
She is the goddess that guides the painter’s hand, who supports the smith’s arm, who whispers to the writer’s mind, who appears in the engineer’s dreams, who soothes the worker’s overworked mind and who straightens the architect’s ruler on the blank page.
That is not to say she is a kind goddess. Sometimes, one of her devotees will become feverishly active, seeking to complete a masterpiece shown to them in a vision. Those are said to have the “XXX fever”, and will seek to complete that piece at all costs. Should they not find the correct materials or tools, or should they not be satisfied with the result, they will never be able to move on. Some even will go mad and may do unspeakable acts just to try to complete the piece and make the whispering voices stop.
God death, dreams and illusions.
Conaal holds sway over all things that are not what they seem.
During their sleep, it is said mortals get close to the border between the mortal plane and the realm of souls, with dreams and nightmares being memories of long dead souls in the afterlife. Conaal is a good god, as he protects the living during their sleep from the maddening visions other spirits could show them.
When a mortal dies, his soul is presented to Conaal who will decide to allow it to join the Great Flow or not. The Great Flow is said to be a river of souls circling Eidon-Esune, a place of eternal peaceful rest. Those that aren’t allowed to join the Great Flow are instead cast into nothingness, doomed to wanderfor eternity into the realm of souls or to become a greater spirit’s sustenance.
Soldiers worship him a lot, very often wearing an amulet in the shape of a black crow, Conaal’s symbol.
