Wrath of the Wicked
Church of Mitra
The Church of Mitra is the preeminent religion of Talingarde, venerating Mitra, the Shining Lord. The Knights of the Alerion, the elite warriors of Talingarde, are a Mitran order. The Monks of Saint Macarius, who travel the land healing the sick and the helping the needy, are also a Mitran order. The House of Darius, the royal family of Talingarde, are devout followers of Mitra.
It was not always this way. Before the Darians rose to power, Talingarde worshiped an entire pantheon of deities. Preeminent among those deities was Asmodeus, Prince of Hell, Lord of Ambition and Order. Now it is forbidden to worship Asmodeus. To do so is to be condemned. The Mitrans destroyed all the Asmodean temples and burned his books and priests. There are no followers of Asmodeus anymore in Talingarde – at least that is what the Mitrans believe. Devout Mitrans will not say the name Asmodeus. He is simply The Fallen One or The Enemy.
