Of Gods and Monsters

 

Below will be all the information about Kiyron's mythological, spiritual and religious influences.

 

In this first section is covered The Beasts of Time, detailing the more mythological aspects of the Greater Hyebis Map, the dominant Kiyronik calendar, than will be found within Words & Things.

 

Below that will be details pertaining to more specific religions and spiritual beliefs and practices.

 

The Greater Hyebis Map

 

The Greater Hyebis Map (GHM) indicates all cycles and their meaning, from a single day through to one of the two Umrith. More complicated maps will even indicate the general tendencies for a person or event when all these items are combined within the full 35 aurbët cycle that returns both moons to a unified starting point with the planetary cycle around its sun, Nesj. What has lost potency within the GHM is the Taurzj Umrith, the lunar calendar linked to Taurzj (the now destroyed second moon), which runs concurrently with the Paron lunar calendar more specifically focused upon in the modern times.

 

The Six Karmic Burdens

 

Each daar(day) of a tsjayn (week) has a karmic burden attached to it, which reflects in part the role of any person born on that day, as well as an aspect of life to which contemplation and effort should be given on that particular day. The karmic burden is expressed through 6 personality types.

 

Daar of Tsjayn Daar Name Karmic Burden/Personality Type
One Boluusek Leader
Two Sjisjaaek Healer/Peace-maker
Three Omooek Creator/Inventor
Four Paldusek Labourer
Five Ibrieek Performer
Six Daurek Co-ordinator/Strategist

The Iybr'ien Tsjayn (The Seven Beasts)

 

The seven original beasts, bound within Iyoa'vyen and Baasjyen mythology, with comparable myths in nearly all other religions and beliefs. Each tsjayn (week) within a siykl (month) on Kiyron is historically governed by one of the seven original beasts, the Tsjayn. The inherent nature of each week is determined by the primal emotion that governs the allocated beast. Ancient Kiyronik lore determined that there were six prime emotions, plus the non-emotion of 'emptiness', which governs the seventh beast.

 

Tjsayn of Siykl Governing Beast Key Characteristics of Beast Emotion
One Amloth Blind, deaf, steals thoughts Ignorance
Two Ligil-Yabesj Chameleon, trickster Confusion - Fear
Three Melag Agressive, destructive Anger
Four Omoo Reflective, inspiring Enlightenment
Five Boluus-Sjisjaa Brave, stalwart, calming Courage - Peace
Six Taribrie Beautiful, happy, full of laughter Joy
Seven Iy Spirit of the Void, nothingness, source of potential Emptiness - Stillness

The Nine Siykl

 

Each of the nine siykl (month) that make up an aurbėt (year) has its own persona also, which is used within forecasting practices predominantly to help determine an individual's character, much like the zodiac. The beasts that govern these are derived from the Iybr'ien Tsjayn, which evolved to become nine.

 

Siykl of Aurbėt Governing Beast Key Personality Traits
One Tol-Amloth Rash, enthusiastic, foolish
Two Maa-Ligil Indecisive, fun-loving, irrational
Three Ib-Yabesj Cautious, planner
Four Daur-Melag Leader, decisive, bold
Five Nieë-Omoo Insightful, mentally dexterous, inspiring
Six Ji-Boluus Courageous, forthright, persistent
Seven Alie-Sjisjaa Peace-loving, quiet, communicative
Eight Naa-Taribrie Joyful, passionate, lusty, sensual
Nine Uubrë-Iy Contemplative, flexible, detached

The Paron Umrith

 

Beyond the single calendar aurbët (year), Malkiyron follows another cyclical calendar resulting from the moon Paron's cycle. Due to an aurbët overlapping 6 days into the Paron lunar cycle, there is a 7 aurbët calendar called the Paron Umrith, providing each of those aurbët with their unique properties. This calendar uses historic gods or their representative animal/beast to represent each aurbët, influencing individuals born within their aurbët, as well as providing a planet wide influence on affairs.

 

Paron Aurbėt Governing God Aligned Beast Body Influenced
Paron Umrith 1 Sibisk Nikrith Physical
Paron Umrith 2 Dramthasj Tsjombokk Emotional
Paron Umrith 3 Abrol Kelumbriethlė Intellectual/Mental
Paron Umrith 4 Pivlazetsj Domsil Communal
Paron Umrith 5 Hapeth Kajin Lower Spiritual
Paron Umrith 6 Mosj Ingdefrien Higher Spiritual
Paron Umrith 7 Uufraakk Opfaysl-Groth Universal

The Taurzj Umrith

 

Secondary to the Paron Umrith, though still applied within some forecasting/occultic circles, is the Taurzj Umrith, relating to the now destroyed second moon of Kiyron. At the time of the calendar's creation, Taurzj had a 5 aurbët cycle, before it would return to a new moon at the beginning of a planetary aurbët.

 

Taurzj Aurbėt Element Body Influenced
Taurzj Umrith 1 Soil/Minerals Physical
Taurzj Umrith 2 Water Emotional
Taurzj Umrith 3 Fire Mental/Intellectual
Taurzj Umrith 4 Air Spiritual
Taurzj Umrith 5 Iyoavil (a transmutational element) All bodies and the state between each body

Religions

Religion Evolved from: Origin Details
Aurik Temple, The Vosl Zjom

Faravon

Doothu

circa 4-2-7

 

Originating circa 4-2-7 within Doothu, The Aurik Temple took some of the core elements of Vosl Zjom, applying a more rigidly religious slant with a more specifically defined code of conduct than is found in its parent.

In 4-3-2, the religion and its followers are expelled from Doothu after their religious head attempts to lead a coup within the country to make the Temple the ruling religion.

 

Baasjism Pruubasjalok

Baskyë

circa 2-2-20

 

Officially recognised as the religion of the Veladraas Empire, circa 2-2-20, developing a more structred form in this time from what was familiar in many tribes around the Baskyun continent. The newer structure fitted well with the  more militaristic development of the Empire as they took on the role of conqueror.

Baasjism is essentially monotheistic, with Iyoa'Baasj at its core, although his twinned offspring Aardis and DIyowas have roles within the religion.

 

Bielok Iyoal

Delmaa - Dmaarism - Iyoa'vyenism

Kalayvyë

Ayvies

4-2-15

Springing up in the southern Kalayvyen nation of Ayvies, evolving from an earlier version that began developing in the 3rd Iraath. Quickly spread to other countries with a Taroviyt influence.

 

Burubël Unknown Unknown

 

Water Lore. One of the three recognised pre-religion polytheistic practices devoted more specifically to nature and specific aspects of nature as divine force than to anthropomorphized entities. Found across Malkiyron with regionalised variations.

 

Delmaa

Burubël - Hoosjaa - Yokk

Faravon

Palinkayt region

4-2-13

 

Growing from earlier regions and lores within the Palinkayt region, with a heavy similarity to Dmaarism, but much more land lore focused than the multi-lore mix of Dmaarism.

 

Dmaarism

Burubël - Hoosjaa - Yokk

Faravon

circa 3-2-2

 

Based on the non/uni-gender god/dess Dmaar. This religion is believed to have grown primarily from the earth/water/spirit lores and is consequently considered the oldest and least anthropomorphized of the three primary religions (Iyoa'vyenism and Baasjism being the others). This is also the least divisive within its followers. Whilst there is only one icon within this religion, powers are invested within specific 'energies' though these are not worshipped in any formal way. These energies derive from the water, land and spirit elements. There are 3 energies for every element. The numbers 3 and 9 are very significant within this religion.

Dmaar: the life force of the planet and the divine embodiment of this force. One of the most ancient of worshiped forces, and also the most unified.

 

Dmaarism-Haaryen Dmaarism - Baasjism Haar

 

Taking on influences from Baasjism, giving it a heavier land focus and more masculine tone, and from the land lore influences of the Niebyen migrants, further enhancing the land focus of the religion.

 

Dmaarism-Havas Dmaarism Havas

 

A much more spirit focused religion, but with a strongly developed military style and influence to it due to the wars fought and the fanaticism that overtook the island nation. The least flexible or tolerant of all Dmaar based religions.

 

Foforism Zos Taurzjlaas 4-5-2

 

Derived from the Zos Taurzjlaas 'Way of Life', or Spiritual Practice. There is no regimented form to this religion. The Breath and The Word are the 2 primary streams of their practice.

Trt: Often referred to by non-Taurzjlaas as 'The One'. Nearest equivalent is Iyoa, the creator and the created. The Taurzjlaas believe that Trt encompasses all things and expresses this through the dance of opposites within.

Trtmlisal: The inner dance of Trt, often expressed through the phrase of "Duality is the inner dance of Trt.". The Taurzjlaas believe that this is manifest through every aspect and level of life, and that the goal of all life is to achieve balance through this dance.

Yekkmt: The balanced dance. It is believed taht there is a level of Trtmlisal that achieves such a level of balance that it becomes the highest expression of Trt.

 

Hoosjaa Unknown Unknown

 

Spirit Lore. One of the three recognised pre-religion polytheistic practices devoted more specifically to nature and specific aspects of nature as divine force than to anthropomorphized entities. Found across Malkiyron with regionalised variations.

Iyoa'vyenism Pruubasjaylok

Faravon

Tarov

circa 2-2-6

 

One of the three principle religions on the planet and the most dominant one within Faravon. Its earliest structured form evolved within the 2nd Iraath, incorporating a range of "Divine Descendants". The religion has experienced many changes over the millennia and survived a multitude of wars and cataclysms in a recognisable state thanks to a secret group of Eruuiyts, with Savuur as its centre.

Iyoa: The Creator and Created, the first and last of all that is, has been and will be.

Iyoa'Baasj: Offspring of Iyoa. Father of all the gods.

Iyoa'Duut: Offspring of Iyoa. Mother of all the gods.

Aardis: First-born of Iyoa'Baasj and Iyoa'Duut. God of war and chaos. Ruler of the 2nd Iraath.

Tsjuun: Second-born of Iyoa'Baasj and Iyoa'Duut. God of isolation, dependence, struggle, innocence lost, exploration of unknown worlds. Ruler of the 3rd Iraath.

Diyowas: Third-born of Iyoa'Baasj and Iyoa'Duut. God of deception, divisiveness, division, segregation. Ruler of the 4th Iraath.

The Yan Droasjun: The four lords of governance. They are the servants of Iyoa, demi-gods sprung from Iyoa's own being, that rule on Iyoa's behalf in adjunct to and guided by Iyoa'Baasj and Iyoa'Duut.

Tsjalism The Aurik Temple - Delmaa

Faravon

Rosj

4-3-7

 

Developed within Rosj, splitting from The Aurik Temple and incorporating Delmaa concepts. Resulted in the religious war between Rosj and Redos and the split of the region.

The Holy Key: The spiritual lead of Tsjalism. The title is passed down through reincarnation, with the variant belief within Tsjalism that a different spirit from within a divine collective is born into the role each time, bringing newness to the role and the religion, even as it brings continuity through its shared experience of its predecessors.

 

Trtmlisks Unknown Unknown

 

The Way of Life. The practices of the Zos Taurzjlaas. They do not see it as a religion, but as a way of living.

 

Vosjm Duut Pruubasjaylok - Temple of Iyoa'Duut

Vosl Zjom Iyoa'vyenism - Baasjism

Faravon

Niebyë

3-2-19

 

A combination of Iyoa'vyenism and Baasjism, formed during the spiritual revolution that swept through the Nezaveth Tisklaam, centred in the Niebyë region, and changed the development of the people and the region in profound ways.

 

Yok Lem-Baasj Baasjism - Dmaarism

Yëvay

Melab

3-2-9

 

Developing from a convergence of Baasjism and Dmaarism in the Melab region of Yëvay, it has undergone several changes, particularly with the move into the 4th Iraath. A rebirth of the religion with the resurgence of the Melabiyt civilisation in the region led to a more structured, but much more tempered, religion.
