Mythology & Lore
Al Scherah died after creating the Fire Clan and so new Gods intent on gaining glory for their chosen people appeared.
King Aldonus (King Edmund's Father) declared Al Scherah had died long ago and their new Gods were going to bring lasting glory to the clan.
Al Scherah created them then died and so the new gods came to aid them.
Tenets of Faith
The Book of Divinity outlines all basic rules and commandments of the religion and their Gods.
All things benefitting the growth and expansion of the Fire Clan are welcome and permitted although anything regarding another person must be harmless or with consent.
On the appointed day, everyone travels to the temple and offers prayers and an amount of gold to show their love.
Those who enforce and lead the religion are called Shamans. There is one per city except in the Capital where the three top Shamans reside and preach. They are appointed by the King/Queen.
