Ave, Allies.

Our belief system of Creeperism has long since been without substance since the upheaval and destruction of the Library and a significant portion of the records across the Empire. Indeed, any of our mutli faceted and varied beliefs are lacking in any substance and form at this point in time.

Creeperism

The belief that the Great Creeper is omnipotent, omniscient, and that It's Servants, the mottled green skinned quadrupeds that we see across the lands of the Empire today. These are the eyes and ears of the Great One. The belief that each Creeper is Sacred, and also sent down to the world to Test each of us. Their presence reminds the faithful to always be vigilant, and to always be aware.


Notable Examples
Creeperism, as I recall it, has long since been the belief of the Valyrian Realm. Going back far into the mists of time, the belief in the Great Creeper has been the mainstay of, in particular, the Kingdom of Valtoros, and its people.
King Kyn is an example of the most devout believer, with a back-spanning tattoo of the symbol of belief

And the Royal Crest of Valtoros.

As the legends go, the previous King of Valtoros was on a quest to find one of the High Servants of the Creeper, the mythical Golden Creeper. His death shortly thereafter allowed him to die with peace of mind. Records show that there was a painting done to commemorate the event, but time will tell if it can be found again.



More input from the Valyrians is welcome on this subject.

I think we should definitely develop this further. Thanks for the start of this Sam!

As always, you lead by example Sam :) . I'll be sure to get a post up elaborating on the blended Ertian/Mystical Reflectivism principles that have guided my peoples for so long now.

Nice work here Sam! I should get the Ertian religious beliefs written down at some point.

Why not make a start today and expand upon it as you go.


We've got a lot to expand on here, I have only got what I recalled from speaking to Scrios and Kyn over time.

I know this is an old thread, but has this been expanded upon? If not I'd love to help expand on it, religion building is one of my favorite things.

I'm with Awolz on this. I'd be interested in adding to the collective lore with a new religion/belief system if there is room for it

Maybe me and you can start on something new, or get with the others and flesh out Creeperism. That is, if there isn't something already about Creeperism that was lost on the old site.

I think it's one of the religions that was fleshed out and lost. When the library is up, I'll try and do a weekly "let's add what we remember / flesh out : [Insert theme of the week]" post.

it's Kyn and Scrios'. I'd make another belief system entirely, they would want to do the details of this themselves. please get right on that though. id love to see what you can come up with.
