Symbol of Autonomism by Naelin
In the religious belief of Autonomism, practised in the Dhalmain Island, the universe and its inner workings are believed to have been created by the primogenial existence of Curiosity, who gave birth to the first Laws of the Universe as she started wondering about things.   Directions was the third Law of the Universe to come into being, after Curiosity, Time and Space.
He is known in the Authonomist mythos as Tremormin.  


Masculine pronouns are used in Autonomist writings when referring to Tremormin.  

Tremormin in the Autonomist Mythos


In the Autonomist genesis, when nothing existed there appeared the Alocardenas, the Curiosity. She was the first Law of the Universe, and as she started wondering, the new universe started forming in the shape of Laws as an answer. Her first two thoughts created Time and Space, and a moment of consideration between each other about their implications sparked the Directions and Dimensions into being.   Tremormin, the Directions, is generally considered as a twin sibling of Isimoje, the Dimensions. Alongside Rheshnaghty, the Intention, he is the only Law of the Universe that did not create any other law.   At the end of the genesis myth, Rheshnaghty, the Intention is created as a component of the first life. They, the last Law, eats Alocardenas and with this they keep Curiosity for themselves, depriving Termomin and all other Laws of the Universe from the ability to wonder new things into existance.  


In the Autonomist belief of the afterlife, when a societarian dies they will join the Law of the Universe that their life and death most closely represented, for which devotees of specific laws will try to lead a life that ensures they turn into their preferred deity.   Becoming the Directions allows the deceased to guide others, helping those lost and giving confidence to the untrusting and the insecure.
After they die, those who want to join the Directions try to get buried at high sea.  

The followers of Tremormin

Devoutees of the Law of Directions reunite in the main Temple of Tremormin in Port Kursowa, in the easternmost coast area of the Dhalmain Island.
Port Kursowa is one of the biggest ports in the island, due to its convenient location in the closest point to the islands of Thaur, Stunveldt, Ruh and even Karte, which greatly benefits Tremormin's main patronage: the sailors and travelling merchants, a lot of whom get to live in the town of their deity.  

Tremormin's Teachings

Priests of Tremormin explain that he was created so that the universe would be able to understand the Space, and so that everyone could find their place in it.
As such Directions is taught as a guide and an answer, and a guarantee that everyone has a place in the universe, and that it is one's duty to reflect on Tremormin and find that place.  


Tremormin is considered the patron of sailors, travelling merchants, cartographers, furriers, locksmiths and weavers, among others.
