Teril Geographic Location in Lethea | World Anvil


Moon of Riel

Teril will shield us from the coming perils. We need not fear and we certainly have no need of your false teachings and protection.
— Rahigi response to Aprēan missionaries
  Teril is one of the two satellites that orbits the cradle of all civilisation, Riel, along with its smaller companion, Vol. Despite its greater size, Teril is a lot less bright in the night's sky when compared to Vol. The surface of the satellite appears far more rugged as well, its surface scarred with large visible craters. All evidence appears to suggest that the moon is little more than a dead rock in the heavens, although that hasn't stopped it from affecting the myths and religions of the world.  

Religious Significance

There are several cultures around the world that revere the two moons, or gods or spirits, that are in some way connected to them in some significant way. With the two satellites of Riel ever-present in the lives of the people of the world, these celestial bodies gave certainty in times of doubt and provided a light in the darkness of night.  

Followers of the Moons

Over in the vast deserts of Lethea, in lands where the sun is often scorned for one reason or another, the worship of the two moons has taken root. This faith is often referred to as Herçaliahism, and it is popular among peoples such as the Rahigi. Teril, for them, represents a great protector who shields the good people of Riel from harm and ruin.  

The Twin Gods

In the green forests and bustling cities of the southern alcheni, the moons are often accossiated with the gods Olícheril and Héril who claimed them as part of their own domain. Their old and withering religion, the Pantheon of the Dawn, considers Héril, the Keeper of Teril, a courageous, youthful, and honourable diety.
