Religion Astrology

Though cults of the so-called Secret Gods rise
and fall with the passing seasons, all Mournans
know and venerate the Sacred Seven: Amaunt,
Araugh, Damantha, Haelarr, Larlasse, Munedra,
and Ralaroar. Sometimes referred to as the Sleeping
Seven, folk go through their days either calling
on the gods for aid or trying to ward off divine
disfavor.
All faiths preach that the actual “Coming” of
their deity (to walk the lands of Mournra) is a
wonderful thing, but the “Awakening,” when all
Seven arise and the “Dire Time” begins, is a dread
event to be greatly feared. It is no coincidence that
the strongest Mournan oath is “Sleepers awake!”
The sky is the realm of the gods, and astrology
is intricately linked to religion. Tsundarra (the
sun), the ever-blazing, floating House of the Seven,
dominates the sky during the day. However,
the starry vault of the night reveals fourteen
nightlanterns (constellations), all sacred to the
Seven. Umbrara’s night sky also holds two moons:
large, pale white-green Thelseene (the source
of almost all moonlight) and small, baleful red,
swiftly-speeding Amaunt. Thelseene’s movements
affect the tides and most magic. Amaunt is little
understood by Mournans, racing along near the
horizon, appearing only briefly and changing little.
During its rare conjunctions with nightlanterns or
Thelseene, when it strays from the horizon, Amaunt
heralds war and is said to lend aid to those seeking
vengeance.
