Religion in Mu

There are three main forms of religion in this world, those that follow Consistency, Hope, and Balance.

 

 

  • The Truth of Consistency

 

This variation of religion holds the Twelve to be the only Holy Beings in existence. They are the only ones who can truly bless and they are the ones responsible for maintaining the world. Those who blindly turned away towards a false ideal are only pale imitations of their true potential. Akson is treated as a prophet who came in their name and died a mortal death at the end of her time. Others claim that there were prophets before Akson and that they are a tool for the Holy Beings to enact their will in the world without pulling threads of reality.

 

 

  • The Rebirth of Hope

 

Followers of this variation believe that the Twelve Holy Beings once held great sway over the world but they grew negligent. To save the world a being from another plane took the unused powers and came down to liberate the people of Mu. Akson is the only one who can now give power and any petitioner of the inept old gods are only fractionally as powerful as they could be. While the old gods exist they no longer have sway as a Akson has filled the void as one true deity.

 

 

  • The Crossroads of Balance

 

These followers look for a middle ground. In this system Akson is a 13th god who sits in the center of the lines that connect the Holy Beings. They are still responsible for their domains and for keeping the balance of the world but she is the level, tasked with identifying imbalances and acting when necessary to set them back. Those that believe use the Twelve as specific domains and Akson as a symbol of constancy, change, destiny, and hope.
