Welcome to the fifth installment of my worldbuilding series. If you missed the first four you can read them at the links above.

And now onto the subject at hand. For most of my stories I stick to the religion I created several years ago, the Abban faith, which mirrors Christianity. Usually I don’t bother with any others. For this series I’m still going to stick with Abban as the true faith, but Continue reading “Deep Worldbuild Project Part 5: Religion”
