Echion


This thread mainly contains lore revolving around a world called Echion. It will be the setting for many of my future RPs and stories. Despite sharing a similar faith and the same creators, the world still remains divided politically, culturally, and religiously.

In this thread, users can read up on the various races, cultures, nations, magic, and gods that exist within this world. It will also be a place to ask lore questions or post bios.

Rules


1. All those standard Jagex rules and whatnot.
2. This is not an OOC thread. Stick to character bios and lore-related questions.
3. POWERPLAYING! METAGAMING! GODMODDING! They are all bad and should feel bad.
4. Respect, common sense, basic human decency, blah blah blah.
5. (insert generic "post ____ in your bio to show you've read the rules" here. Remember those? Those were fun.)
6. Don't literally post ____ in your bio. That was a joke. I don't really care, because aside from the No-OOC thing, these rules are basic common knowledge by now.
7. "Have Fun!"

Religion - A Brief Overview


The Siblings

The world was created by two gods, Order and Chaos. What came before these gods is unknown. What is known, is that they are the creators of the world. They shaped its landscape and handcrafted its inhabitants, helped them form civilizations, watched and guided them as time went on.

However, it soon became apparent that the gods had conflicting ideas and values. Chaos felt that the people should remain divided and free, to compete amongst themselves and become stronger. Order wanted the people to be united, safe and united under one banner, and was disgusted whenever the one race fought another.

It is unknown who struck the first blow, but one day this disagreement turned into a full-scale battle. The battle lasted for weeks, perhaps even months, devastating the world. Entire civilizations were brought to ruin, either due to collateral damage or because they made a foolhardy attempt to use their armies to aid one of the gods.

Then, one day, one god was able to vanquish the other, shattering him into fragments. Unfortunately, the victor is not known. Because the two gods were intrinsically linked, when one shattered, the other shattered too.

The Aspects

The fragments were soon drawn into the hands of mortals, who used them to become gods in their own right. There are six Aspects of Order and six Aspects of Chaos, each one embodying a trait or ideal that their original god once held.

However, they are not the only Aspects. When the Siblings fought, they felt intense, conflicting emotions. A desire to help the people of Echion, or perhaps a wish that things could have turned out differently. But their intentions were not entirely selfless - there was a wish to have Echion for themselves, and a desire to see the other brother dead. These feelings became fragments of their own right.

They too found their way into the hands of mortals. However, it is unknown which god each individual fragment originally came from. Instead, they are known simply as the Aspects of Good, created from the positive, selfless emotions, and the Aspects of Evil, created from the negative, angry, selfish emotions. There are four of each. However, the Aspects of Evil, angry and vengeful, began to inflict such terror on the world that the other Aspects united to banish them.

The Caretakers

Back when the Siblings were at peace, they fulfilled their role as the realm's guides and protectors. However, such a task soon proved time-consuming and arduous, even despite their immense power. So instead, they handcrafted lesser gods to fulfill certain roles, such as controlling the weather, carrying souls to an afterlife, maintaining the barrier between worlds, and keeping the sun and moon moving across the sky.

They do not embody any ideals; they have a purpose, and they serve it. Some say they don't even feel emotion. They simply perform their task, and if someone or something endangers the world, they put a stop to it, which is why they helped banish the Aspects of Evil.
