Hello lovelies. As of 10/29/2016, we've released our new Religion System that focuses on religion and Immortal worship in Idalos. If you have a question about anything involving this system, please post it here! Thanks!

Religion Q&A

Are we allowed to make suggestions? If we can, I would suggest adding more positive or negative devotions to earn points on.

Positive ones could be: give a sermon or educate a newcomer about the immortal, create (positive) art or propaganda featuring them, perform good deeds (or bad, depending on the immortal) in the immortal's name, make decisions with their virtues in mind, complete quests or favors for the immortal, strengthen connections between allied immortal factions/cities/etc., duel or otherwise confront enemies of the the immortal, etc.

I'm not as certain about negative ones, um. Betray the immortal's values accidentally or with intent, use magic or become a mage (if the immortal in question doesn't like that sort of thing), claim or brag about the marks' abilities as if they are your own power, fail to heed the immortal's requests (especially if asked to go on a quest or perform a duty or favor), fail to help comrades in need, use/attempt to misuse an ability, earn the disfavor/curse of an allied immortal, etc.

Hey there! You can definitely make suggestions for the devotion table. We're always looking for options to give players more of a chance to acquire or lose devotion. We're constructing personalized tables for the marks page which will feature some of your suggestions. :)

In the guide it says the following about devotion and blessings:

Once the Blessing goes into the negative, it is automatically removed from the character.


The devotion tables for the various Immortals are not up yet, so I'm wondering what we can do this season in order to keep our blessings.

I apologize out that typo. The staff came to me with concerns over this so we've decided to make it a modded thread for blessings and curses to be removed. Individual tables for the Immortals will be worked on tonight and uploaded during the week :)

--- Edit
Error has been fixed.

I get that mages can't start with a mark, but they can earn marks in threads.

I'm wondering if mage characters can earn blessings/curses in memory threads ?

Edit: I moved this to the Domain Magic Q&A and it has been answered by Plague.

Dumping this here. It was answered in chat PMs but its so other people can find it.

Q: Are those blessed by certain Immortals able to sense items/artifacts sourced from those same Immortals?

A: Yes, but only when touching them or with in close proximity (5-10ft max)
Dead laptop. Inconsistent postings until I can get a new one

1. Can an Immortal remove a mark or shift it to a curse without physically appearing before the marked?

2. Does an Immortal always know where their marked is, and would Delana Gems stop an Immortal from finding their marked, such as in Ellasin's case with Sintra's blessing?

3. Will an Immortal know if a PC has invoked their blessing in some way?
