Theology is a very interesting and complicated subject in New Convergence. Considering that most of the people in the city came from varying iterations of Earth, most of their Religions are standard Earth religions. However, some other religions have cropped up over time, many of which come from Juniper, or the long history of Fornax before it touched down on Juniper.
Ael (The One God): The religions of Ael (A'el meaning "I am" or "He is") are many. On most Earths they are known as "The Judeo-Christian Religions", and in them, God is a singular entity who strives to encourage humans towards a path of righteousness and sinless living. On some Earths, the ancient Judeo-Christian religions have been set aside for a more up-to-date "Aelism", or return to the central tenets of Ael. Most Aelist religions are centered around the leadership of the Celestials known as Elohim in attempting to navigate a Universe where Ael has gone silent. Most believe that Ael is not dead, but simply allowing his creations to show that they can, on their own, continue to follow the instructions given to them -- a test of faith, if you will. There are several Aelist churches in New Convergence, mostly located in the Tear, where they do good works and counsel the down-trodden. Many members of the Iron Guild are faithful Aelists.
Lucifer (The Lightbringer): Fewer are the religions of Lucifer. A former Celestial of Ael, Lucifer is said to have "raised the Sword of Righteousness" against Ael. To Aelists, this is seen as Lucifer having betrayed Ael for selfish reasons -- a want of power or simply narcissism. However, to the Luciferians, the Sword of Righteousness is a symbol that Lucifer discovered Ael had foul intentions, for humanity, for all other races and celestials, and potentially for whole Universes. Lucifer is seen as someone who turned away from being told to do hurtful, vile things in the name of faith. Lucifer wished for freedom from tyrrany, and those who followed him wished the same -- that never again should they be made to serve without question, live without love, exist without self-determination. Those Celestials who followed him to the realm known as Hell would watch as Lucifer absorbed the mad god of hell known as Satan, and became a god in his own right. They are known as the Nephilim.
Nixxa (Goddess of the Night Sky) and Pyxis (Starry): Unsurprisingly, many people in New Convergence pray to Nixxa and Pyxis. Nixxa, seen as the Goddess of the Night, of darkness and mystery, even the mystery of death itself, is represented on an overwhelming amount of Exos League ships. It is not remotely uncommon to see a small dome-shaped altar on those ships, with Nixxa standing with spread arms, indicating the night sky, and Pyxis nearby, holding navigational instruments such as star maps or a compass. Even Aelist churches have gone so far as to sanction figurines of Pyxis as "representations of New Convergence's founder", and are fine with them, as long as she's not prayed to directly. Worship of Nixxa and Pyxis is even widely accepted in the Reach, an area that typically is rather Atheist, with many high society weddings taking place at night under an open sky. Nonetheless, there is not really an organized religion behind this worship, and thus most people are just casual believers who think of the pair as sort of 'patron saints' of the city.
The Grace (Faith of the Thorns): The Grace is both the way to refer to the faith of the tribes of the Thorns and also their main temple, located in Everdark. Although they do not believe in a singular god or goddess, the Thorns tend to believe all gods probably have value, just some of them are more powerful and useful than others. Together, all of the gods and spirits combined create "The Grace", a state of magical holiness wherein all natural things are in balance. Things can become out of balance, however, by angering or neglecting the gods and spirits. This state of unbalance is known as "Dis". Xi radiation is believed to be one of the most intense forms of Dis. Each of the tribes has a totem spirit, an animalistic deity which protects their people, including the Wintertalon. However, the Wintertalon additionally venerate the spirits of their ancestors and the dead in general. Despite this difference, the Wintertalon are seen as the spiritual leaders of the Thorns, and closer to the Grace than others. It is believed that the ancestors have chosen the Wintertalon to speak and act in their stead, and so this difference is an honor upon them. The Keepers of the Grace are a cloistered order who tend to the central temple of the Grace. During the time of their service, they "give up" their allegiance to a single tribe, and are seen as servants of them all. Because of their pantheistic ways, the Thorns rarely have any problem accepting or incorporating gods of other religions as simply "another aspect of the Grace", and so many flock to the Thorns for greater religious acceptance.
Discord aka Eris (Chaos Magick): But, is it really a religion, or is it an inside joke? Nobody can really confirm whether or not the Gray Hat and other reality hackers really believe in Chaos Magick, if they are insane, or if they just pretend to believe in the various ideas behind Chaos Magick. Chaos Magick is not really a magic in the way Alchemy or Portalcrafting is. It's more of a theory, a way of being. Some follow the amusing Earth text, "The Principia Discordia" wherein the Greek Goddess of Chaos, Eris, is extolled as causing a scene of complete chaos amongst the Greek Gods through the use of a single apple. Others simply write their own text, believing that elements of Chaos can speed up the progress of evolution, widen the mental horizon, and so fundamentally change the way that someone sees the world that they too are deeply changed -- and for the better. Many believe that Chaos Magick, if ever truly masted as a functional magic, would be the most powerful of all magic -- as it would unlock the hidden potential not just of humanity, but of all races, and thus allow them to save the universe, perhaps even the multiverse, from impending cataclysm. Chaos Magick has no organized religion or tenets -- that would defeat the whole idea of Chaos. Most of the time, it's mistaken for A Big Joke that Isn't Very Funny. (Main texts: The Principia Discordia and The Book of the Subgenius )
Blood Kemetism (The Vampiric Faith): Vampires lift their religion from old texts known as The True Book of the Dead, which contains much of the same information as the Egyptian Book of the Dead, and yet much, much more. It contains stories and rites regarding the various ancient Egyptian gods, who are also (in large part) believed by the vampires to have been the progenitors of their race. Vampires do not generally share their religion with outsiders, as they are a very insular and secretive race. However, since coming to Juniper, there has been more of a move to allow those who wish to freely give their blood or service to vampires to become part of their faith as well. All in all, Blood Kemetism focuses on the Father (Osiris) and Mother (Isis), and their vampiric offspring, as well as the human offspring, Horus. There is a prophesy that a second coming of Horus will set up a time when all of these gods return to "the realm of men".
Uul, God of the Unknown aka "Uulism": The main god of the Empire of Varduun was the worship of Uul, god of the Unknown. Uul is often depicted as being faceless and holding a knife and bowl or goblet. At his feet are usually depicted his three children: triplets whose mother was "the blood red sky". Vestra, goddess of secrets is depicted with no mouth. Agarr, god of blood, is depicted with a single hand, the other holding a small scythe with which he cut off his missing hand after it touched his sister's breast. Between them stands Yemni, whose gender is sometimes male, sometimes female, sometimes both, and sometimes neither. Yemni holds a horn which contains a magical elixir allowing the drinker to join the gods after death. It's a strange cult, and nobody really knows how it began. Mostly, it is worshipped with a lot of sacrifice, bloodshed, and sex acts.
Chaupahai:Chaupahai, God of Bliss, tends to be portrayed as a smiling man who carries several chaupa pipes. Each of the pipes is twisted in a different way, representing Argosi runes and, by extension, different types of Bliss. There is the Bliss of friendship, the Bliss of accomplishment, the Bliss of excitement, the Bliss of lust, and so forth. Worshippers have no real formal religion usually. But, they do tend to be pretty positive, optimistic people who don't worry about things that can't be helped. "If Chaupahai wills it" is a common phrase, along with, "Could be better, could be worse." The smoking of chaupa tends to be the only real worship activity, and some strains are restricted for certain types of events, such as the Funereal Chaupa, for when one dies, or the Wedding Chaupa for a marriage day.
The Great Snake: Not a lot is known about the former cult of the Great Snake. There are only bits and pieces, such as...that the Great Snake wrapped around Juniper and squeezed all the water out. Or that the Great Snake can turn into a road to take you anywhere you want to go. As this is not really an active religion, there's not much to know, though some people HAVE pointed out a similarity between the stories of the Great Snake and the god-like entity who controls the Realm of Doors.
