* Plot Information for Glacia

For years, the Dark Religion has persecuted the Light Jeweled with its doctrine of stigmatization. Under the messianic Queen Elisif Brenden, it has flourished, ensuring Glacia’s success in other fronts. But upon her death, a line has been drawn and forces beyond Glacia’s borders are gathering to stop its theocracy once and for all.

The Dark Religion
« on: Dec 31, 12, 08:13:50 PM »
Glacia is a territory ruled by religion.  Religion decides its laws, its prophets and its leaders.  It is the Dark Religion, strictly followed that enforces Glacian beliefs that Mother Night has embraced them and will continue to do so if they continue to adhere to her strict precepts. While not everyone believes to the same fanatical level, the overwhelming majority of Glacians hold their beliefs sacred.

The following are the tenets of the Dark Religion:

* Mother Night is not an abstract concept, but rather an encompassing force which directs our lives through gifts, castes, jewels and visions. She exists and she is watching.

* The depth of the Abyss is blessed only beyond the level of the Purple Dusk. Anything darker than a Purple Dusk jewel is an inarguable blessing from the Mother.

*Receiving a Light Jewel is a symbol of internal impurity forever. The only ways to redeem this impurity in the eyes of Mother Night  is to return to the Darkness.

* The darkness found in caverns and caves is  the conduit to communion with Mother Night.

* Landens are the Mother’s lesser children.  It is for the Blood to protect and cherish them.

* The Jewelless Blood are as Landens. They are the Mother’s lesser children. It is for the Blood to protect and cherish them.

* The Kaarme Mountains are the Mother’s resting place.

* Witches are kin to Mother Night.  The lowest caste of witch may rule before any male for they understand most deeply what the Darkness desires and requires.

* A male bearing two castes is one that pollutes the holiness of Mother Night.

Because Glacia is a religion run state, these tenets are not only the base beliefs of their religion, but they are also the laws of the land. All other laws governing the Blood of Glacia stem directly from the tenets and beliefs of the religion.

Additionally, in contrast to other territories, the Landens of Glacia have accepted the tenets of this religion as their own.  Because of the view of Landens according to this religion, their treatment is much better in Glacia than in most other territories. Though separate from Blood, any abuse of Landens by the Blood is seen as not only blasphemy but a crime and treated as such.
