Religiae v.2[]

The worldspells collectively known as Religiae were introduced over 600 years before the events of Chronicla. (Qura's story begins in 1600 AD.)

Abilities[]

Anyone can use the magic that Religiae enables. Such magic are called Gifts. In order for a person to use Religiae, he or she must first become Initiated through a Rite of Initiation. This generally occurs at the age of 13; when people of either gender reach this age they are encouraged to go through the Rite. Initiated people have a variety of advantages over those who are not, including the ability to use the Gifts. However, there are also a few hidden downsides.

The abilities they can use include:

  • The ability to speedily channel air, water, earth and fire, mostly destructively, which is done through ritualized, particular body movements;
  • The ability to utilize prayers to protect, heal, and cure, incredibly slowly and on the spot, generally taking teams of dedicated people;
  • The ability to place one's blood into that of another, thereby allowing one to scry, torture and even kill them (generally slaves, daughters and wives);


Development[]

The first part of Religiae that was created in 990 AD lay down much of the foundations of the worldspell; later versions would emulate it.
