Achalism is the main religion in Sajhdula. In contrast to other religions the deity being worshipped in Sajhdula is their Oracle. A deity which is very much alive, and can be visited by the adherents of achalism. Not only is this woman the religious leader in the city, but also the political leader. Religion therefor plays a very integral part in day to day live for sajhdulans. Aeol, a deity which pops up in several religions throughout the world, also plays a role in Achalism. It is claimed he is the father of the Oracle. Unlike her however, he died thousands of years ago.
Achala Ulh Methyr is an immortal woman. Her exact age is unknown, but historians estimate she is atleast 10.000 years old. She came into power in Sajhdula in 24 AP after the king at that time was killed. The myth of The Hanging of the Pale Woman supposedly tells what led to his demise. It is part of their religious texts, and seen as a true event in the eyes of the sajhdulans. She is what we call omniscient. All-knowing. She is able to see the past, present and future. Nothing can be kept from her.
Tenets of Faith
Fact or fiction
Despite there being very good proof that the Oracle is indeed immortal, there are still people who think it is all a lie. Conspiracy theories have been circulating for a long time. Some claim that the oracle is a mortal woman who is replaced every now and then by another woman looking very similar. The striking features of Achala make this very unlikely though.
