Religious Affinities

These are intended as a jumping off point to characterisation and a sometimes useful setting hook. If you don't have any characterisation yet or aren't interested you can treat your character as Indifferent to all aspects.

Some have made attempts to describe the gods as having shared elements of their ethoses. Regardless of the in universe validity of those shared elements they are a convenient game mechanical hook to identify how much a character agrees with or is repulsed by the fundamentals of a given religion. Choose the statement that best maps to your characters opinion on the axis. The characters answers are important to how they interact with priests and potentially other metaphysical elements. Your character's opinions on these elements are free to change and develop in play. Declaring yourself fully aligned to everything will get the LARPOs to give you some very suspicious looks.
