Children of the Moon Organization in Omari | World Anvil

Children of the Moon

May our beautiful moon continue to shine bright for the rest of time. Let us always embody its light in our daily actions so that we may pay forward the kindness Uxali showed us so long ago.
 
This is the oldest religion that originated in Omari and was not brought over by other cultures. It consists primarily of Oizai who consider Uxali a deity and any other folk who decided to praise the space phoenix.
   

Founding

 
Children of the Moon was created during the first year following Uxali's arrival. Many Oizai were so grateful for his help, they wanted to deify him and sing his praise for years to come. The Moondrinker clan shifted their spiritual ideas to create the foundation for this religion to grow from. Their focus was space and the moon itself. Oizai felt these were good symbols for Uxali and even believed the moon captured a part of his soul when it turned purple on the night of his crash landing.
   

Symbols

  The moon and stars; full moons are especially important.   A phoenix, although peacocks will also do.   Peacock feathers.

Tennants

  1. Keep Uxali's generosity in your heart always and pay it back to your community.   2. Give praise to the moon every night it is full.   3. Do not speak ill of the cosmos least it bring doom to us once more.
   

Structure

 
This organization has little hierarchy and strictness. The laid-back Oizai try to keep things simple and as welcoming as possible. There are only three groups:
 

Uxali's Voice

The head and spokesperson of the entire religion. They are chosen by all the members via a vote every five years. It is possible to be re-elected if the individual does a good job and wins the hearts of their followers. This person is responsible for organizing events and listening to any messages or concerns sent up from the Feathers.  

Uxali's Feathers

These are the priests; each one oversees their own temple and shrine. They typically serve for life unless removed for committing a crime or betraying their people.  

Followers

There is no official name for everyone else. They all hold equal ground within the organization.

I like how the other articles connects together, making it easy to read on and find the details needed when the need arise. a good formating and writing overall. Looking forward to see if you would add art of the cult or the moth themselves.   Regarding the voice's vote: how does *everyone* vote in your settings. By mail ? through dreams ? during a pilgrimage where most gather during that specific time ? Are re-elections common ?   Happy Summercamp !

Thank you! Thankfully I had those already written so I was able to link right away. As for art, I'm sure I'll get some imaging in there in the future. I mainly focus on getting the words down during SC and similar events.   Ah, I didn't consider that detail. I will certainly ponder it and add elaboration whenever I get the chance.
