Hmm, the Priest (or #worldofadventures ‘s Cleric for that matter) ask to define your religion with these questions.
What do they Control (the sun, the seas, the skies, etc.)?
What do they Represent (love, death, war, wind, etc.)?
Who are their Worshippers (nobles, dwarves, wizards, etc.)?
Who are their Enemies (demons, undead, heretics, etc.)?
What are their Demands (sacrifices, secrets, victories, etc.)?
I feel like these questions don’t fit my setting as my gods all represent broader concepts, virtually everyone in the world are polytheist, they don’t have defined enemies or friends and they don’t really demand anything. If anything, they are more like ideologies and people interpret them how they like (hence the existence of numerous churches of the same god that have different beliefs and rites… much like we see with Christians, Protestants, Baptists, Anglicans, Puritants and whatnots).
So I came up with a set of different questions.
Here’s with an example.
What do they Represent?
The eternal cycle of life and death.
What is one of their Gospel?
For one life taken, one should be given.
What is one of their Rite?
Proper burial of friend or foe by burying them in soil.
I feel like it’s missing 1 or 2 other but I can’t think of something interesting.
Does the Hivemind have ideas?
