Deity - Irnus, The Creator and Destroyer
The God Irnus is the creator of everything. He will also become the destroyer of everything that was once created, but all in due time. Mostly, Irnus is worshipped as an afterthought, as there are other Gods and Godesses who actually have been known to walk the earth, and get mixed up in ordinary people’s lives. Most people feel that Irnus himself would rather rest now that everything is created, and gather strenght for the inevitable destruction of everything at some time far into the future.
Except in Thounia, where the King and Queen dedicated their victory over Askaria to Irnus. Not only did they claim Irnus helped Thuonia win by destroying Askarian troops, they also elevated Irnuism (as they’ve come to call it) to state religion in Thuonia. Most people living outside Thounia think that Irnus was at least as perplexed by this as they where. Thounians on the other hand, embraced the new state religion with open arms, building themselves into a state of patriotic-religious frenzy.
The new Church of Irnus in Thounia is rapidly growing, both in wealth and political power, while the clergy of the old Temple of Irnus, founded countless millennia ago had to withdraw from sight as they are deemed “unpatriotic, heretics” by the Church.
