    I've been going through online resources for fantasy religion creation and I've found a short but well-rounded article about creating a religion. I believe it can apply to all aspects of fantasy, although the short bullet points can be expanded upon as you see fit(with your own imagination and knowledge or other resources).

    Not a direct answer, but may help for how they play out is the concept of worldviews.

    So far this thread is fine. However, before it goes any further, a word from the creator of Mythic Scribes regarding religion as a topic here.



    Take heed to this sage advice Scribes. Violators will face the wrath of The Reaver.

    Thanks! :D

    I've found the concept of worldviews helps me in world building & society building. It gives a full orbed template for how a religion affects a society.

    The world I'm currently building has a tight pantheon. As I trying to fill my maps with cities & regions under the influence of any particular deities, I'm finding it influences everything from architecture to government.

    No evangelism going on, just trying to share what is currently helping me build the mythos behind my world.

    You're doing fine, vigosinger. I would be remiss in my Moderator duties if I neglected to post that for all to see. Thanks for being a valued member and for contributing to the thread.
