I have created several various religions for my Minecraft World, Alpha. I started out with a set of four religions based on an elemental theme – Fire, Air, Water, and Earth. The Warrior religion was added later, and I’m still working on a religion for my frozen-tundra kingdom.
Church of the Creator
- Headquarters: Cathedral of Light, Imperial City
- Leader: Archbishop
- Clergy: Priests
- Religious Guilds: Brotherhood of the Lightless Flame, Sisters of the Divine Severity
- Also known as: Creationism, Creationists
Creationism is the religion of the Wizards, and is the largest, most wide-spread. It consists of the worship of “The Creator”, and its churches resemble your standard christian church. Each church has an altar with the sacred flame, as this was my fire-based religion.
- Headquarters: Great Temple Complex, Agrazahn
- Leader: High Priestess
- Clergy: Priestesses
- Religious Guild: Kinship of the Stars
- Also known as: Zahnists, Worshipers of Zahn
Zahnism is the worship of Zahn, the Sky God of the Ancients. It is based in Agrazahn, which translates to “City of Zahn” from the ancient language. It is located mainly in the Desert Province.
Disciples of Hyetal
- Headquarters: Great Sanctum of Hyetal, Southron
- Leader: Eldest Elder
- Clergy: Elders
The Disciples of Hyetal worship the great Sea God, Hyetal. It is located in coastal areas, and is a favorite religion of sea captains.
Followers of Desala
- Also known as: Nomads
This is my earth-based religion, and it is different from the others. It has no central structure, and focuses more on the individual worship of nature, similar in a way to Druids. There is no leader, and no clergy, and no churches or temples. Followers worship on their own, and make pilgrimages to sacred sites. The Followers of Desala are more commonly known as Nomads.
Brotherhood of Gothmog
- Headquarters: Temple of Gothmog, Klaatu
- Leader: First Brother
- Religious Guild: Mercenary Guild
This is the religion of warriors and the Mercenary Guild. Members worship Gothmog, a legendary warrior and founder and the Free City of Klaatu.
Church of Eternal Light
- Headquarters: Great Shrine of Eternal Light, Tycon
- Leader: First Vicar
This religion worships the Sultan of Tycon as a God-King.
