Religion

The people of the Kingdom of Manay worship the same Gods as the Great Eastodian Empire and the Westodian Empire. Before the Great Enlightenment in which the Elveriane race taught the people of Dalakora the true history of the multiverse, people worshipped Gods that were alternative intepretations and manifestions of the true Gods. This is still the case in many parts of Dalakora. What follows is Derios The Grey’s account of that history and the Gods that make up the pantheon. You can find out more about the gods by talking to the priests in the Kingdom of Manay.

Abath Torlirion
by Derios The Grey

In the beginning there was Torlir, known as the Creator. How he came into existence none knows but from his mind spawned his two twin brothers, Corthir and Cranthior. Torlir could only be described as ammoral whilst his brothers of opposing nature represented Order and Chaos. Torlir, however, could never distinguish between the two.

Torlir concentrated on his works of creation and left his brothers to war across the Cosmos. When Torlir created the first intelligent beings of Torlirians, Corthir and Cranthior ceased their fighting and became fascinated by these sentient creatures. Torlir gave each of his brothers a third of this race to teach and nurture. It was not long before Corthir and Cranthior resumed their conflict and this time with their people joining the war.

When Cranthior decided to slay his brothers to gain complete dominance, a great battle took place and all but ten of the original Torlirian race survived. Torlir, Corthir, Cranthior and the ten became what we now know as the Great Gods.

Of Torlir’s people, Varagor and Valendaris survived. They are the greatest of the Torlirians and do not directly interfere in the world of mortals and loyally serve and protect Torlir.

Corthir and his Corthirians (as his people were called) are what we would call the ‘good’ Gods and generally uphold Order and Justice. They are Lithor, Leylaria, Larlana and Ordoron.

Cranthior also had four of his people, the Cranthions, survive. They are Zandey, Morklin, Mothgar and Seylorin. They are the greatest evil force in existence and always seek to overthrow Order and bring Chaos to the multiverse.

The war between Corthir and Cranthior wages on to this day but now their fighting is done through the doom of the Elveriane race of which I would not speak of as it is also the greatest shame in the history of the Elveriane people.
