The Clergy

Organized religion based in Crisillyir. Every mortal
can empower himself, even reach godhood, if he confronts the
challenges of the world. Beyond this world exist many planes, each
a more perfect manifestation of some aspect of our reality, and they
are presided over by powerful gods, angels, and spirits that can be
entreated for power.

According to the church’s holy text, one thousand years ago a human
fisherman named Triegenes from what today is Danor discovered the
secret of divinity while lost in a storm at sea. He returned and preached
about the divine spark within all mortals, and how by constantly challenging
oneself, a person can become like a god. He inspired followers to
fight beside him, and together they toppled tyrants, slew legendary monsters,
and eventually established a new nation, based upon a hierarchy of
divinity, where rank and reward were based solely on merit.
After his kingdom was established, Triegenes undertook the greatest
challenge left in the mortal world: to defeat the demonocracy that oppressed
the lands to the east. He confronted the abyssal lords who had
taken residence on this world, sacrificed himself to banish them forever,
and then left his mortal shell and ascended to godhood.
The Clergy believe in many gods, with no pinnacle godhead, but
they preach foremost the teachings of Triegenes, that every man has
greatness within him, and he merely needs to be challenged to awaken
his potential. And while a thousand years have burdened this original
message with a complex celestial bureaucracy, vaguely-interpreted visions
of a multiverse of planes, and a strong emphasis on the superior
potential of humans above all other races, the simple dogma that anyone
can improve their life, and that indeed this is the main purpose of
life, holds strong appeal. The Clergy is now the most widespread faith
in Lanjyr.
