EOSTRISM - The traditional faith of the Kanadiaans of Candanadium, this is the worship of the fire god, Eostre, who is believed to have guided the Kanadiaans from the Isle of Kaltach to the shores of Candanadium. Eostre is the primary deity, with many mythological figures revered as saints, such as King Wilhelmus of Magnare, the legendary first King of the Kanadiaans. Eostrism is practiced throughout Kanadiaans communities. Three is a holy number in Eostrism, as three ships carried the Kanadiaans to Candanadium, which is also why three maple leaves are featured on the Candanadian flag. The head of the Eostrist Church of the Lord of Flame is the First Flame, residing in the Palace of Eostre in Old Konigstadt. Houses of worship are Eostrist Churches, also called Fire Temples, and the clergy is made up of priests and priestesses. The monastic order is the Brothers and Sisters of Eostre. The holy text of Eostrism is the Red Book, also known as the Book of Flame. The most important religious holiday is the Fall Festival, celebrated on the first Wednesday of November every year. Eostrism is the predominant religion in Candanadium and Belkhomir, and also the religion of the Candanadian royal family.
THE OSEANIAN FAITH - The traditional faith of the Oseanians of Candanadium, this is the worship of the nameless gods of stone and water and leaf. The maple leaf is a holy symbol in the Oseanian Faith, and prayers to the gods are made beside mountains, bodies of water, and beneath maple trees, which are some of the most sacred objects. Oaths and marriages are also administered under maple trees for the gods to bear witness. There is no centralized church nor clergy in the Oseanian Faith.
THE FAITH OF OUR LADY OF CASKHOMIR - The traditional faith of the Caskaans of Caskhomir, this is the worship of the mystical deity, Our Lady of Caskhomir, believed to be the guardian of the Caskaans, having carried the Caskaans over the sea to Caskhomir, much like Eostre is to the Kanadiaans. The Faith of Our Lady is practiced throughout Caskhomir and other Caskhomirian communities. The head of the Faith of Our Lady is the Stewardess of Our Lady, and the clergy and monastic order is the Order of the Sisters of Our Lady, only open to women. The true name of Our Lady of Caskhomir is only revealed to the Stewardess on the night of her confirmation, and is an extremely well guarded secret. Houses of worship are the Temples of Our Lady, featuring an altar upon which food and drink are placed, offerings to Our Lady in gratitude of her stewardship and maintenance of Caskhomir. Families will visit Temples every Friday evening to give their offerings, which are cleared by the Sisters the following morning and fed to birds, which are believed to be the messengers of Our Lady. It is believed that historically, Our Lady of Caskhomir and Eostre were both gods in the same Kaltach belief system. The Faith of Our Lady is the predominant religion in Caskhomir.
TREFJALLI PAGANISM - The traditional faith of the Trefjalli of Trefjall, it is also observed by a minority of the Westland Trefjalli and the Cape Trefjalli of Candanadium, who have mostly converted to Eostrism. Trefjalli Paganism is the predominant faith in Trefjall.
THE FAITH OF A’RU - Also known as the Edofasian Faith, this is the traditional faith of the Edofasians. This faith was heavily suppressed in the early days of the Dominion of Edofasia. The main deity is A’ru, and the main anti-deity is Lugh, which is revered in Cenaesia. The Faith of A’ru teaches that men have no masters nor gods, only teachers, and that man is created equal to one another and must work and live as a commune, never raising a class above his fellow man. The house of worship in the Faith of A’ru is the Temple, and other divine beings, such as the Horator and the Tribunal, are also revered as part of the faith. The head of the faith is the High Priest. The primary holy text is the Black Book, with the 36 Lessons of Lugh also being a text of divine importance.
