The True Faith of Emiria is a book written by the high priests of The Faith. In it, it details the principles of The Faith. The Faith is the worship of the five deities, known as Neannu, The Goddess of Life, Amora, the Goddess of Love, Balthos, the god of War, Sophirios, the God of Knowledge, and Mortis, the God of Death.

ExtractsEdit

First among the Gods is, was, and shall be great mother Neannu; Goddess of Life who gave birth to Mythos from her vast womb, who pours the waters of fertility and birth upon the earth so that living things may appear and thrive. It is she that delivers the child to the mother and the lamb to the ewe; she who draws the oak from the acorn and the grass from the wet ground.

Neannu is the always-forgiving mother; she brings life to the good and the righteous but weeps for those who in their folly sin. She cannot bring herself to smite them, though such a thing is ever in her power; she has never killed and turns over the wicked to her dark brother who shall entrap them within the underworld. Even then her tears splash down upon the ground and form the salty seas.

- ibid.


Neannu is a Goddess without equal. Her form is the form of the most beautiful women. Her beauty radiates off of her like the sun, so that one can not look at her straight on. Neannu's voice is soft as silk and warm as a spring. Neannu grants all wishes in the afterlife to those who have lived without sin and followed the Faith zealously. Her providence is that of none other, and she inspects every child before it is born.

- ibid.


As Neannu looked over her creations, the lands and the seas, the forests and the mountains, the beasts and the birds and the fishes and the intelligent races of Mythos, she smiled. But then she saw Mortis disturbing the order she had created, and she cried out, and asked of him wherefore he altered the perfection she had made. He ignored her and continued to twist the world so that she had no choice but to cast him out, entrapping him within a darker mirror, but maintaining the ability to take the dead. He howled and raged at her, and she cried for what she had done, but it had been necessary.

- ibid.


Greatest of warriors is Balthos, who strikes down his foes with a sword as long as the mountain chains and barely feels the strikes of titans through his bronze armour as thick as the sea is deep. His warcry shakes all the worlds and causes every wicked thing to tremble as each of his strides covers realms on his path towards battle.

- ibid.


It is Amora who creates the holy bond of love between man and woman, but also she who severs the same; she distributes desire and fancy alike amongst the residents of Mythos and even the greatest wyrm is vulnerable to her spell and charm.

- ibid.


Wisest of the wise is Sophirios, the scholar god, repository of all wisdom. From his seat high in heaven he watches the worlds, and he knows when the harvest will be bountiful and when it shall fail; he knows when the rains shall fall and when they shall pass over; and he knows who shall win the battles that rage amongst the races of Mythos. He learns much, but he acts little.

- ibid.
