Other Gods and Religions

The Outer Gods

The Outer Gods are dark, evil beings that live beyond Quadarc and the realms of its Gods. The Outer Gods wish to invade Quadarc and enslave its peoples, but the Gods of Quadarc keep constant vigil to keep Quadarcans safe from their depredations. There are rumors that Minions of the Outer Gods have occasionally made it to Quadarc, but have been dispatched by the Gods or their champions.

One of the Gods of Quadarc, Nugritu, has been corrupted by the Outer Gods, and is their agent. He was imprisioned beneath the ocean to keep him from contacting the Outer Gods, but continues to try to contact them through the creatures of the ocean.

Some humans are known to worship Outer Gods. They may be unwitting dupes and agents of the Outer Gods, or they may have full knowledge of their deities. Knowingly or unknowingly, they seek to subvert the will of the Gods, and bring the Outer Gods to Quadarc. Worshipers of the Outer Gods are typically closely aligned with Nugritu and/or the Kethu.

The Disciples of Transcendent Oneness

The Disciples are Quadarc’s only Monotheists. They believe in the Trancedent Oneness, a single being beyond time and space that represents true perfection in all ways: spiritual, moral, and metaphysical. Disciples tend to be ascetics, eschewing the world of flesh in attempt to trancend and join the Oneness.

Disciples believe the Gods to be material beings of Quadarc masquerading as Gods. As such, they are believed to be fundamentally evil.

Children of the Spiral Arc

Children of the Spiral Arc worship the Universe. They try to sublimate daily cares and troubles Universe, and attempt to lose their individuality in meditation of the Cosmos. They see the Divine in the movement of the Celestial Spheres, and are known to be able to predict the future from the positions of the stars.

They believe that the Gods of Quadarc are Divine, but still just part of the Universe, and thus relatively unimportant in the overall scheme of things.

The Children live in monastic communes, and tend to be studious and strange.

Gatewatchers

Gatewatchers believe that the Gatewalkers will return one day, and bring about a Great Second Age of Men. They seek to bring about that age by attempting to rebuild the Great Gates. They collect information of the earlier times, and fund adventurers to find fragments of the Gates.

Gatewatchers tend to be either wealthy Men and Women who keep their faith a secret from most Quadarcans, or wanderers and missionaries paid by them to actively seek out Gate Knowledge.

Gatewatchers believe that the Gods of Quadarc are actually powerful Gatewalkers, left behind in the Gatebreaking, who have divided Quadarc up among themselves. The second coming of the Gatewalkers would free the Men of Quadarc from their tyranny.

Gatewatchers are generally intolerant of other races (Pantroglids, Tardigrades, etc), and want them either enslaved or extinguished.

Endbringers

Endbringers believe that the Gijgihale was supposed to be the End of Everything, but that something went awry. In their doctrine, all life from that point forward is an abomination. Endrbringers want to bring about the End by harnessing the secrets of the Pools of Final End, and wipe all life from the face of the earth.
