Religion has a strong influence on the Ikaanian society in 2489. Over 40% of all Ikaanians belong to the official state religion, The Church of the Two Moons, and a majority of them claim to be genuinely devoted to the preachings of the moon priests.

A person living in Ikaanos has religious freedom, however, and there are many smaller cults that have either been imported from Earth or risen from the ashes of The Great Chaos.

Church of the Two Moons (CTM)[edit | edit source]

With their gleaming towers in Crystal Heights, reaching almost 300 feet tall, it's not hard to realize that the Moon Priests hold absolute power over the religious peoples of Ikaanos. They are devout advocates for slavery and the mayor-ship of Ikaanos and provide immense help by holding the unruly masses far away from rebellious thoughts. The Moon Priests do this with fiery preachings that speak of the importance of a united front against the Davidian houses of New Eden, and the need to stand strong against the forbidden cults outside the city.

Beliefs[edit | edit source]

The CTM is rooted in the archaic Hebrew scriptures from Earth, with strong influences from the Vedas and the Mahabharata. They preach about how the thousand headed All-God sent humans to Raana with the mission to restart "the great race of the arch" (arches being planets). They say that the All-God destroyed Earth after humans tried to be gods themselves by extending their lives and acting in "unreligious ways"
