Man’s Ancient Patron
The worship of Menoth is ancient, predating the Church of Morrow by millennia. Menoth is a strict, vengeful deity, credited by most humans (even those who follow the Twins) with the creation of the world and mankind. It’s unquestionable that Menoth exists, for his priests were once the powerful ruling class of the land. Alas for Menoth, the more uplifting and tolerant message of Morrow began to take hold with the people, and today the worship of Menoth is a minority faith everywhere except the Protectorate. Outside of the Protectorate, the largest minority serving Menoth is among the “Old Faith” of Khador, where many citizens cling tenaciously to the worship of their ancient creator.
Menoth is usually depicted as a masked giant, towering over his frightened worshippers. He demands adherence to a strict code of conduct – part of which is providing constant tribute to Menoth and his priests. The notion that a man may “ascend,” so central to the worship of Morrow and Thamar, is blasphemy in the church of Menoth. To Menoth, man’s place is to serve his creator, and his reward is to pass quietly into oblivion.
