On Pangaea, one of the most important aspects of shards dynamics are the religions.
Religions or “Orders” as we like to call them, are player run and they play a very big part in the world. Below you will find some general information about religions and specific information on the religions/orders that currently exist.
Pangaea has 4 religions:
Joining a religion
To become a member of a religion, the applicant must swear to obey the religion's orders and and laws. The applicant must also relinquish any affiliation with another guild to join a religion. When a cleric uses the sacrament indoctrination, Priests, Monks, Knights and Rangers joining a religion will by default have their piety set to 10.
Any other class, but the specific denied (look under religion descriptions) will still become a member of the Order but will not have the ability to use a tome, receive piety, or any other cleric reserved action. A powerful cleric can promote by using indoctrination once more, his members and grant them more piety, but only to a certain point.
