Jump to navigationJump to search

The Divine Census of Cedrism is a comprehensive list of the gods and demigods venerated by the official sects of the faith. There is significant variety, owing to local and regional beliefs. Cedrism being essentially a decentralised religion with no formal structure, with each god having its own self-declared priests and acolytes, this list presents a thorough overview, designating regional worship where relevant, though the adherents of individual gods or groups of gods may disagree with the worship of others on this list.

The Demi-Gods

This is a list of the lesser Gods known as Demi-Gods. Demi-Gods are Transcendi who have not fully achieved God status or power. Demi-Gods still have access to the Celestial Temple and many are still revered as full Gods in local settings. Often a Demi-God will be referred to as a God without any problems since they are almost the same thing. The Gods do not look down upon the Demi-Gods, instead they see them as equals in the Celestial Temple.

  • The Benac: Demigod of Butchery and Benacian Conquest, Patron of the Human Supremacy
  • Elwynn: Goddess and patroness of the eponymous Benacian Region

Transcendi

This is a list of those mortals who's deeds in life are recognized by the Cedrist ecclesiarchy as worthy of Transendence. Though this does not include all Transcendi (as no mundane records could comprehensively track each of the innumerable souls which have taken the Path of Transcendence), it does list those recognized by the Council of Negrixnaht and all such subsequent Cedrist councils.

  • All but the most reviled of Kaisers have been imbued with divine authority and are made Transcendent while yet on the mortal plane, granting their mandate to rule. As such, any Kaiser who dies while holding the office is presumed to have Transcended as a matter of course, while those who abdicated or were otherwise ousted are first among equals when considering the fate of their soul.
  • The Eight Reapers are Transcendi chosen as servants by Mors and let loose to the winds of Micras on each Day of the Dead upon the openning of his Temple doors to guide souls of the faithful back to his temple to be assigned their fate. When the temple doors are shut on Eightsday, these Reapers rest upon their deep thrones in wait. During this period of rest, the souls who are not aided by the Reapers' guidance wander in a frigid limbo until the Temple doors open once again.
  • The Watchers are Transcendi who peer into the Mortal Realm and measure the merit of deeds of the faithful.
