Water or Blood
History of the Imperial Religion
-Prior to the Kar’iv Landing in 36 BU, the Continent had no unified name or ruling structure. Each region boasted its own gods and traditions. As the Maar people conquered each realm, they dedicated it to the principle deity of the subjugated people, as symbolic gesture of respect and governance. In this way, Umar, God-King of the Children of Maar, gained its own divine Vassals.
-In the Summer of 30 AU, the First Grav’yechian Council elected each of Umar’s Vassals to the station of “Divine Administrator.” This act unified the despondent gods of the continent, granting their temples lands and holdings, holding all gods at equal station, save for their Emperor Umar.
-In the year 453 AU, The Great Deluge, widespread flooding broke the continent asunder. Provoking the Sixth Grav’yechian Council, and the splintering of the Sixth Councilors. Loyalists maintain that Umer is currently engaged in battle with the two-faced water god, Chor-a’-Rai, while the Reclaimers have declared Umar a dethroned tyrant, and Chor-a’-Rai an exalted king/queen.
-454 AU-Present. Currently, there is an uneasy peace between the Loyalists of Umar and the Reclaimers of Chor-a’-Rai, the Warden of Waters.
