Title: Shadowling Assassin Cult Religion
Post by: Duskling on May 30, 2011, 11:13:13 AM
If the Assassin's Cult is a cult, what's their religion?
I think I'll leave that one up to player speculation.
I presume they worship the Queen, her being considered a god and all.

But if that's so, most of the Shadowling population would've worshipped the Queen then, so why would the A Cult (I'll call Assassin's Cult A Cult from now on)have the same religion?

I think they worship the fact that Psy Assassins are the best.

Perhaps they may be a rather egotistical cult of assassins, believing in the idea that they themselves and no one else are supreme, and that they assassinate those whom they do to "exterminate" the lower beings.

This, of course, is pure speculation. I actually don't know much about the Assassins Cult.

I think they worship the fact that Psy Assassins are the vest.

a) Most don't worship facts, but rather idols and virtues.

b) What about the Assassin's Cult speaks of sleeveless attire to you?

c) I would do a fanart of b., but I don't have the authorization to do so at this time, i.e. "It's bedtime."

Maybe you are taking the word "Cult" too literally.  I don't think the Assassin's "Cult" is any type of religion.  I think they use the word "Cult" to show how devoted they are to their cause.

Which is...?
Being the best assassins, and getting lots of money and power?

didnt one of the shadowling brothers describe the assassins cult as being 'totally devoted' to the queen?
