So, I've had a few people interested in participating in this crazy scheme of mine and I'm honestly extremely flattered, so I made this for you. I'd love and massively appreciate having YOU be part of this, make this something of YOUR own and take it where YOU want to take it.
Let's get into it.
Messiansim is a religion very similar to conventional Christianity, and it's a spinoff of Clover's Spirit religion. Messiah herself is actually an atheist, but she has a huge messiah complex and believes that she has to lead the world's people towards being virtuous and good, so she has designed a religion to shepherd people into being so, with herself as the Messiah of the Supreme Spirit she heralds.
Belief in an almightySupreme Spirit, one that is eternal, perfect, and omnipotent, above all material concerns, unlike the conventional Spirits which are mortal, have fallible personalities, etc. Also, while they represent separate aspects of the world, they don't explain bigger questions. Who made the world? What happened at the beginning of time - who made time? What's the meaning of life?
To preach a sense of absolute moral good. Solace in (being closer to) knowing the one true answer to what is right or wrong, which would be the will of the Supreme Spirit. And unlike many cults you may think of, this religion is actually good. Not the messed up kind of "good", but actually wants to make the world a better place for everyone. Love, hard work, generosity, etc are its virtues. The Church of Clover is practically a "zoo" of merely exotic beings - the elemental Spirits, who have differing personalities and opinions on what is right and wrong, making a moral compass based on them very easily contradictory and ambiguous. Also, the Spirits can lie to you. When you really want true answer, who do you resort to?
Lack of bias. The Supreme Spirit accepts all, loves all, represents all. Unlike the Church of Clover which seems to promote segregation and separation into the four elements, Messianism aims to unite all under a single "family."
We don't send assassins to kill off those who may threaten the church's position because that's a bit fucked up. The Church of Clover, does (Mod's word, and there's upcoming missions about it too apparently).
Like most religions, Messianism requires actual faith because of the significantly unambiguous tangible evidence for their claims, which makes Messianism more of an actual religion. Messiah considers this an asset in the design of Messianism, because it allows the religion itself to be more "pure" and mystical and not be limited by constraints of external phenomenon in order to perform its role. The Church of Clover has real evidence for their dieties - the Spirits themselves they worship, removing most need for actual faith for their faith.
- The Messiah [0/1 open]: Main mouthpiece of the Supreme Spirit. De facto leader.
- Apostles [3/3 open]: High-ranking officer. Have alleged unique gifts from the Supreme Being (gift of tongues, power, etc). May or may not know that the Messiah is actually an atheist.
- The Prophet [0/1 open]: Sideline figure. Messiah-like alleged divine connection with the Supreme Spirit, has an announcing and foreseeing (prophecy) and counselling role rather than direct leadership but has a unique position of influence.
- Churchgoer: Common religious people and whatnot. Deacons, Priests and other everyday officers are here too. Unlimited slots
- Ally: Not a believer but nonetheless a supporter of Messianism's goals.
- I don't know if this is a cult or a support group Establishes the existence of a Messianism church in Nairn. Bucket is aware of its existence and is currently on good terms with Messiah and choosing to ignore reporting the cult (actually gave advice on how to keep it secret).
- Praying for Power Further lore about the Messianism Church. Beth-Anath exists as a natural mana phenomenon that the Church uses for religious experiences for one of its churches in the Common Region. It's just a blob of illusion magic that causes a massive high, though.
