The Words of Gilgamesh

The words of Gilgamesh is a religion that follows the gods talked of in the epic of Gilgamesh: Ishtar, Ereshikigal, Anu, Enki and Gilgamesh. They believe that after Gilgamesh's death he was reborn as a god where he took the seat as king of all gods taking Ishtar as his wife and Ereshikigal as his concubine. They also believe he brought Enkidu back from the dead. They believe that Gilgamesh had been reborn a second time as Akkadia to lead the mortals into his kingdom and rule over them as their king. It is considered a great honour within the religion to be chosen as a servant or concubine to Akkadia.   They founded the city of Ishtar's Touch and have a fierce rivalry with the lion kings subjects.
