I believe what you really mean to say is you want a no religion option to choose from as have others expressed the desire for. Societies create religions and gods to have validation for the things they cannot explain.

Daria has two moons, and two gods... Likely as the races evolved and matured, the lore that there are two gods evolved from the fact that they didn't know how or why there were these two big bright objects in the sky every night. Likely some story teller centuries back started telling his listeners that the moons are really gods to add to their awe... Thus, if you're a non believer, you can just go on non believing... For those that do want to believe, or for those who want to believe, here's one of the oldest stories of lore reguarding the gods and moons... Retold of course...

The Athulic teachings
The story of the Creation

At the beginning of time the ether existed in total harmony. From the universe, two brothers were born: Uth and Ath, foes by nature. They were opposites in all aspects, save for one: They both desired to catch the sun. For Uth to let the sunrays shine ever so bright; for Ath to extinguish the same, and by doing so, seize the power of the whole universe. In their attempts to destroy the other, they each created increasing amounts of matter.
Ath created soil and mountains to burry Uth in landslides, while Uth created trees and vegetation to tame the earth and wind to wear down the mountains. Ath created fire to burn the vegetation and Uth created water to extinguish the flames. In the final battle, all elements were united in one big bang, shaking the very foundation of the universe and putting the ether out of balance.
It was then that the almighty Father--the ether itself--turned to Ath and Uth and said:
"Behold what your hatred has done. Because of your inability to control your jealous rages, the punishment for your acts shall be to orbit near to each other for all eternity, watched by your own creation, your sister, Daria."

And so the world as we know it was created; and as it was said, Uth and Ath--our two moons--still orbit Daria, under her watchful eye....

Ah, yes, an ‘Other’ religion option would work real well methinks. You could even do a ‘Type in your Deity’s name’ type thing- that way those who follow certain religions that condemn the belief of other gods, such as most branches of Christianity, won't be offended.

Jeez, it's roleplaying. Do Christian actors/actresses have severe problems with committing sins when recording a movie? Or do they always play the moral whores?

** Major part of the post edited out on account of hypocrisy **

Sure, I'm all for having custom deities. But if I see Ten Commandments in any of them, I'll make a Satanist assassin and go on the Ten Killing Sprees.

I was gonna comment, but I forgot what I was gonna say answering something in IRC...

Oh well...

I did see this S&M flick once that had a priest named Father Dick, and a nun named Mother Superior... "Do you believe in Christ? On your knees, bitch!"

Stant… Wow.

… In my opinion, a strong emphasis on the personal beliefs of individual characters would help create a more personalized (And therefore better) feel to the game.

Hmm, so I'd be putting in my character's name there...Well I it would be cute but it would ultimately be useless and confusing. Besides how many people who played WiA complained that they couldn't exercise their Christian beliefs in character?

Well, quite a few complained that they had to be either Gifted or Shining...

S&M? Not sure what that is but that movie sounds like a porn. But I think people are puting to much into this game. I dont think people should have the option to choose every aspect of the game, it would just get bothersome. You should just be able to choose what God you want to follow, or be an athiest for whoever wants to be.

If you could type in your own diety name, I think you'd end up with almost as many dieties as players. Which would completely destroy the community aspect of religion, as well as any possibilities of religious wars. Plus you'd get a lot of newbs putting themselves as their diety.
Aesthetic is good though. It would imply a sort of neutrality that merchants, mercenaries or spies would need to use.
