The World Egg
An Ol'Mire creation myth from The Grey Nest religion.
This article is still a work in progress!
The World Egg is a creation story originating from the plane of Ol'Mire
that is tied to the beliefs of religious folk of The Grey Nest
. They believe that the world is an egg that's about to hatch
, and the devastating events of The Rupture
only solidified their beliefs - they claim that the Rifts
are actually the puncture marks of The Great Shell.
Before The Rupture, the plane of Ol'Mire was isolated and had no contact with the world and people beyond the rifts - they had no idea that another world
existed. For many it was a sign of The Emergence
(as foretold in the ancient religious texts of The Grey Nest), but for others they started to question their faith as this did not align with the original story. With the new connection to Melior this felt to them more like a merging of worlds
, not an emergence
into something bigger.
Devout followers argue that The Emergence is into
Melior, and that more rifts should be opened up to chip away at The Great Shell - the veil between worlds.
The Grey Nest is predominantly followed by Ardeans
, among other egg-laying Folks.
