Heretics

Incarnates: This heavily persecuted church sect believes that the holy words of Zebulon was corrupted by the first church fathers to suit political needs. Incarnates believe in the Incarnate Spirit contained in every sentient being created by the Pancreator. Religion and worship of the Pancreator does not need a physcial and restraining hierarchial order of priests and church, and incarnates allow for no higher authority than bishops.

Gjarti: Forbidden belief in the Universal Mother and the various nature spirits that reside and rule her realms. Attunement to nature and the natural balance of things are important to this Gaia cult. Practiced by simple serfs of mainly secluded Hawkwood fiefs.

El-Diin (Kurgan): The structured and colourful religion of the Kurgan Caliphate. The All-Maker, the maker of Stars is resposnible for creation of all things. The Caliph is his prophet and his voice in the material world. With his unworldly insights and communion with the All-Maker, the Caliph can rule justly over the Ordul-Diin – the Faithful Horde. Although not acknowledged, the religion shares many things with that of the Universal Church, such as belief in the purity of ones soul, Zaiboulu the first Prophet (Zebulon), Palu the Traveller (St Paulus) and Heru the Wise Man (St Horace). Important manifestations of the religion are the Hajj (pilgrimage) and the Jihads (Holy Wars).

Erdgheist (Vuldrok): The religion of the Vuldrok Star-Nations is as diversified as the various tribal nations that make up the Star-Nations. However, some effort has been made to order the various deities into one accpetable mishmash of deities, referred to as the Erdgheist. War Gods, Winter Gods, Fertility Gods and Gods of the Deep Space and Jumpgates are but a few of this Gjarti inspired religion.

Zuranists: A animistic worship of spirits and master/maturity of ones spiritual self. The religion is popular among gypsie-like people travelling the wilds and Known Worlds. The Libro Esperanza serves as the main link and gospel to the Zuranists, created by a man of visions. Wise women (Blanca Matres) and fortune cards (Fata Cards) are other manifestations of this forbidden religion.

Manja: Ancestral worship originally found among the Li Halan before their Elevation to Grace. It still survives and is held a careful secret. Worship includes summoning and communing with dead ancestors in secret crypts holding their remains.

Antinomists: A collective name for all those foul and fallen humans and aliens that worship the dark entities from the Qlippoth (Hell) and the Darkness Between the Stars. Always seeking ways to taint or entrap the souls of men and to destroy the worlds and humanity as we know it today. In reality, the ideologies and goals of these cults are as diverse as their dark gods. Many innocent cults are often accused of being antinomists, before ending their days at the pyre.
