Abolish artificial restriction "Fraction/Nation<->Guild

No. It's really always the high powers who is resurrecting homins.
Players characters can think it's not the high powers etc.... but the truth is what I say: always the high powers and they why they are doing it is because they need homins regardless of their alignment.
Maybe in the ranger background their is a corner case too. (as said previously Horongi's have been able to resurrect without the powers help ... but no-one else and this powerfull ability is NOT playable by players.)

Of course, that does not mean that those higher powers are necessarily Jena and Ma'Duk; those two may simply be fictions invented in order to manipulate Homins more readily, or for homins to "understand" the inconceivable aspects of reality. After all, what is religion if not an attempt to make sense of the incomprehensible? In fact, what I've read of the Horongis, either Jena and Ma'Duk are merely masks of the true higher power(s), or there are no higher powers and we merely use them as a framework by which to explain the universe because our science does not (yet) have a way to explain it without allegory. Now, I'm not saying that that is actually how it is, only that there is enough room in both logic and lore that it cannot be discounted as a possibility that allows for "heathens" like you and I to rise from the dead and teleport without breaking lore.

It also allows for a lore-friendly way to mix factions in a guild. Imagine a homin who knows on an intellectual level that teleportation and resurrection do not require Jena/Ma'Duk yet cannot figure out how to get out of that metaphor and thus still rely on Kara/Kami thinking. I know that some may say that such folks are actually Neutral and thus have no business ever aligning, but that's rather shortsighted. There are plenty of humans who were born and raised into a faith they no longer truly believe yet cannot break out of the only paradigm they have ever known; why should homins be any different, especially PC homins controlled by human players? Why not have an Atysian equivalent of Unitarian Universalism or Congregationalism?


Do not assume that you speak for all just because you are the loudest voice; there are many who disagree that simply have no desire to waste words on you.
