Religion

Brief note on the belief in spirits

To understand religion in Suwarnabumi, one must first understand that all things, even the most insignificant object is inhabited by a soul. Spirits pervades everything, denying their existence will only make them angry. Upset the spirit, and it will surely curse you with sickness or bring injury and bad luck. There are many different kinds of spirits. They include fey and elementals (nature deities), outsiders (celestial and guardian spirits), and undead (ancestors, demons, and ghosts).

The people of Suwarnabumi turn to nature deities and guardian spirits for blessings and good fortune rather than an actual relationship between worshipper and divinity. They turn to religion not for any doctrine or how to lead their lives, but rather seek a form of protection from the unknown.

Conversion to Thalathanism

A thousand years ago, the religion of Suwarnabumi was a mix of animism, ancestor worship, and influences from both Nagaism and Veraism. New religions, including the Coils of Vishalya and Wavestillers, but predominantly Thalathanism—have been established in more recent centuries. Thalathanism spread through commerce and migrations; especially in Suwarnabumi. Thalathanist dynasties were soon established in East Amarachi, throughout the Pahanari Lands, and in Suwarnabumi.
