On Religion

“Worship was something your people brought to the world, Jerilyn, worship of the Dark Lord and gods more fair.  Yes, the wickedness of Daeryss and the Traitor is well known, but they were not Erlik’s worshippers in the way that you mean it.  The Elder Races had no religion, not even the rites we observed within the Stones would count as one by your standard.  The Maiden’s rites were a practicality, a sacred obligation, a wondrous one but a duty nonetheless, not a form of obeisance. Religion is a modern phenomenon, a fabrication of Mankind, and faith is its pillar.  What need had the Elder Races of faith, we whom loved and laughed amongst the gods?”    Kandol Elf Lord
