Religious Syncretism in Zihæt

Zihæt blends the earth based religious traditions common to bronze age and early iron age civilizations with the creatures commonly found in a fantasy roleplaying game such as Dungeons and Dragons. This is not to imply that this was true of Bronze Age Indo-European cultures, but how these cultures might have adapted to a new world.   See also Drakón Mythology Overview, Northern Tribes Religious Overview and Spirituality of the Elder Races.
