Hillenistic Interpretations of Abrea's Teachings

Mages possess powers that can devastate the world and so all mages have to confirm their loyalty and their ability to control their magic. Vitaemancers are considered too dangerous and they must be killed for the safety of the rest of the population.
Abrea is the Goddess of Mankind and worshipping others is heretical.
Only the alstirsus can interpret the messages of the Lady of the Lake.
The Amber Lady preached about being kind to others and so to spread kindness all forms of love between consenting adults who aren't related is allowed.

There are three types of religious buildings where people can go and worship Abrea, these buildings are called kirijks. Each kirijk is lead by a kirijksus.

Litskirijk

A small building where people go to worship. Usually built in smaller settlements where wettkirijks and foarkirijks are unavailable.
