The Aganist belief begun in September 2021 when Chancellor IceBoy made a journey a round the former Benistan continent to explore the surrounding city's and country's, and the land of Nya-Äggland that at the time stretched from Westdale to the former Nazi Castle. When he came across the ancient Äggish city of Tau'rynn (Väder in Äggish) he heard a voice. A voice that told him to establish Aganism and what it should be about. Therefore Tau'rynn is a holy place for Aganists. IceBoy returned home and established his belief in Äggland. Aganists belive that Agania is a godess.
The Aganists have three levels of administration, The Highest Krans, The Lower Krans and The Brons Krans all are councils.
The Highest Krans is made up of the people of the church and is lead by the King of Aganists, the leader of the entire aganist faith who sha'll show Aganists the way of Agania. The Highest Krans decide on things that are big for all Aganists, but not political often. For example it can be the choice of building a new church or make someone a Tar. Read about the creation of the highest krans in the end of the chapter called "The Dasiks" in Nasbookn.
The Lower Krans is made up of political leaders of Aganist countries and they decide on political things regarding Aganism, for example to sanction a countrie who has done something bad to the Aganian faith or the people of Agania. The Krans was started after Agania gave her 13 white doves to the early Äggish Kings.
The last Krans is the Brons Kranses (Bronze Krans because most of the peasants stuff was made of Bronze), also called the Bona Kranses (Peasants/Farmers Krans) is many Kranses made up of normal Aganist people. Each nisja or monastery has their own Brons Krans that is made up of the local Aganists. Once a year all members of the Brons Kranses meet at the stone of Hjelas to discuss about things that touches all of them. All Brons Kranses come to this meeting called the Brons Ting. The Brons Ting is one of the biggest holidays within Aganist faith. The Krans was started by peasants in Väder to discuss local things and talk about their Aganist faith together.
Krans means council and circle and orginially comes from the First Highest Krans in Tarland. In Tarland there was a perfect circles of flowers in the middle of the plain that never seemed to die. Here the First Highest Krans would always meet to discuss.
In diffrent kranses aganism can be seen diffrently. For example in some kranses some deitys are more important then other deitys.
How they see the world
To understand Aganism it's very important to understand how they see the world. The religion is based upon the celestial bodies seen from earth and so the view of the world is very important.
The six deitys
In Aganism there are six deitys or six sacred beings including Agania, the only god/godess. Here is a list of them and a short explanation after chronological order of their "births"
- The Wholy Eagle/Den Helgade Örnen - The deity of vacuum and the empty expanses of space, the first of the deitys. Gone but always present as all the other deitys.
- The Flame's Eagle/Flammans Örn - The deity of the sun, born out of the egg that the wholy eagle. Laid another egg and then flew upp to the sky to become the sun.
- Agania - The deity of the moon, the most holy of the deitys and the only god. Was born out of the egg that the flame's eagle laid. Queen of the månfolk.
- Tuvö - The deity of the stars, son of Agania and a wild spirit. He loves all beings and has one arm and one eye for every livnig being so that he can always help everyone. He died during the fall of Örnögan and rests in the stars collecting power to once again rise and bring paradise to every being at the end of the world. Also the deity of sleep.
- Dåå Dåå/Dåas - The deity of life but most famous as the deity of children. He is a doll that wanders around the earth, always helping life's purest lifeform, the children.
- The Boar/Galten - The deity of the earth, half of Agania's consciousness that she gave to the Vaniar king Vondiga's boar after the war of Tarland. Protector of the earth and it's good beings.
This is the basics of the Aganist holy book Nasbookn which only is aviable for a few
The Beggining of the world
The First Light/Det Första Ljuset
In the beggining of time Aganist believes that the entire world was a black emptyness. Then a light was born in the darkness and an eagle flew out of it called the Wholy Eagle. The Wholy Eagle grew and grew until it was gigantic then it laid an egg and flew away never to be seen again. The Egg soon exploded and the flame's eagle, 13 white doves and the first land came out. The flame's eagle laid an egg in the forests of the new land and then flew up in the sky again and rolled up into a big ball of fire. This ball is by the Kudenstimer called the Sun. Out of the egg that the Phoenix laid a godess came out. Her name was Agania and she ruled the world.
Tuvö, Gernstimer and Småfolk
Agania lived in the forests for a long time with the animals wich she had created. But it got lonely and Agania got pregnant with a wild spirit. Some months later she had her son Tuvö. Tuvö loved all living in the world from the first moment he opened his life. He always wanted to help them so Agania gave him one arm and one eye for every living creature so that he could always help everyone. Agania then got tired of the lands, now called Jord (The Earth). She then created her own land called Agane (The Moon) she didnt have the powe to create a verdant world and Agane became a baron wasteland of dust. But Agania would not give up on Agane. She built a great castle there, bigger then any country that humans would ever form. She needed people to live there and serve her there so she created the Småfolk, a small inteligent creature that was divided up into 4 tribes. The smallest one was the Tjernerne. Their beards had grown over their entire body and because they dont need clothes because of their big beards they would never wear any clothes. Then there was the Kornas. The Kornas were small with chubby and short arms that they could not bend. They lived in holes on Jord and were very shy. Next was the Vanias, these were normal Småfolk that lived on the earth were they formed big citys and kingdoms. The last and biggest tribe was the Månefolk. The Månefolk worked on Agane where they served Agania. They were holy and glowing amazing creatures.
One day one of the Månefolk accidentaly spilled milk on Aganias long hair. In her Anger she shouted at him. The Månefolk who spilled was called Gern and first he was embarassed but them anger grew within him. In that moment the first evil was created. Gern then travelled to Jord and kidnapped some of Vanias women and fled to the mountain of Grao were he and his descendants created the fortress of Örnöga, the centre of all the world evil.
Realising her wrongs Agania became sad and bored and none of the Månefolk could cheer her up. But one of the Månefolk, a young man called squire Sylvias, came up with the idea to sew a magic doll that always could cheer her up. Sylvias gave it to Agania and she became very happy. As a thank you Agania promoted Sylvias too An leader of a bastion. Everyting was going great until one day when Agania realised that the doll (Now called Dåas or Dåå Dåå) had escaped. Dååå Dåå became a living thing and fleed down to Jord. Dåå Dåås footprints began outside the Vania city of Belae. Agania and the guards that followed her continued a long way south to find Dåå Dåå. But one of the locals showed them right into a trap laid up by Gern and his men to get revenge on Agania. Gern lost the battle and had too flee back to Örnöga and since then no Gernsimer has since then been alowed to talk about it. The Hunt continued west. On the cold fields many of Aganias guard froze to death. But after a long long time they came to the end of the field were a long sea spread out. On this cliff, now called Venured, they found Dåå Dåå, looking out over the sea. When Agania saw the happines and the calmness in his eyes she said to him "I see that you are happier here in the vast wilderness then on Agane so i will let you stay here and bring joy to those who live here." Dåå Dåå thanked her dearly and since then, whenever a child has behaved very good, Dåå Dåå has laid caramelized melons under their pillows. And whenever a child has been crying Dåå Dåå has been there to give them a hug.
When Dåå Dåå had left Agania felt lonely again. She wanted someone who looked like she did. Agania then proceeded to create the Humans (Narmåses in Äggish). She let most of the Humans live on the Jord. There they lived in small hunting groups for a long time. They hunted animals and picked up berries for food. Agania gave some the gift to be almost as intelligent as she was. These people called the 13 Inyas lived in Agane together with Agania as her closest friends.
One of the Inyas was named Rastargas. He was the smallest and weakest of the Inyas. One day when the Inyas and Agania was on a trip to Jord Gern saw them. He also saw how jealous Rastargas was of Agania and the other Inyas. Gern knew how to use this for his own good. By influencing his mind by magic Rastargas became more and more jealous as the trip continuned. One day Rastargas couldnt stand Agania anymore and decided to kill her and take the Blåög, a magic amulett filled of power that Agania always had around her neck. When everyone had fallen asleep Rastargas took his sword and climbed up the tree were Agania and her closest Inya Nesinid sleeped. When Rastargas was about to put his sword in Aganias throat Nesinid woke up and pushed Rastargas to the ground. When he fell the others woke up and took their weapons. Rastargas fleed into the forest. The Inyas didnt go after him cause they knew because of his small size Rastargas was very quick and because of that there was no gain in trying to catch him. Rastargas went to the outer parts of the earth to create his own fortress, just like Gern (for Gern was still influencing his mind). On the way there he recruited many humans to join him creating a big army. On an big island in the eastern seas he created Odigår, a big and dark fortress that was impossible to take down.
The First Realm
There was once upon a time a Vania named Nahmi. He was a wanderer who had visited almost all lands of the world. He was a good man who lived of the fruits of the forest. But he grew old and tired and he could not travel anymore, so therefore he decided to settle down. It took him many years to find a land where he wanted to settle, but eventually he found one in the west of the world. He took convinced his brother Nakhala to go live there with him. They took their families and travelled for many years until they finally got there. When they arrived they saw a great plain covered in snow. Nakhala was furious and felt cheated. But then Nahmi set his hand in the snow and picked up a fruit from under the snow. He then told Nahkala to taste it, and he did. The fruit, from that day on called Sterå, tasted like a blessing from Agania and filled the hungriest stomache in one bite only. The two brothers and their families now settled there. Word spread of the blessed fruit and many came to settle there aswell, in the land that became known as Tarland.
More and more people settled in the land and a government became needed. The most notable Vanias were called to a meeting on the mountain of Tullahuse in the middle of the great plain. Two men stood as candidates for the positions as kings. They were from the two richest familys in the land, Kanudas and Altagas. Jedrhi of Tidenheim was from the Kanudas family, the rulers of the city of Tidenheim and Ivilklis of Kalagan was from the Altagas family, the rulers of Kalagan. After days and weeks of discussing Jedrhi was eventually chosen to be king of Sterådas, land of the Sterå, who became known as Tarland by the humans. Tidenheim became the capital of the land and almost everyone was happy with the desiscion and accepted and praised Jedrhi as their new king. But there was some that didn't. The family of Altagas and their city of Kalagan were not. Their sister city of Hjärnu were not happy either and the two citys would always be against the king and his men. A hatred against Tidenheim and the rest of Sterådas for accepting the Kanudas as kings grew large and the two citys rested until their revenge could come.
The word of Sterådas spread across the world and many humans became interested in the land as well. Most of them traveled and settled there under the protection of the dwarfs. For at this time in history, humans did not have very advanced technology. The Humans spread around in small tribes living outside the Vaniar civilization in Tarland, although there were still some living in the cities, learning technology from the Vaniar. One of these men was Velmund. Velmund was the adopted son of Imhul, chief of the most northern human tribe in Tarland, in an area where not many Sterås grew. Velmund was sent to the nearby city of Neir at the age of 14 by his father to study and learn the technology of the Vaniar. Velmund was a good student and learned much from Vaniar during his years in Neir. But when he was 19 tragedy struck and his father died of fever. Velmund got to hear the terrible news and was called back to his tribe, but when he got there one of his fathers closest men had taken control of the tribe and had made himself chief. Velmund was banished along with 12 of his closest men. He fled north and the pack lived in the northern forests for 5 years.
After 5 years Velmund and his men went southwards, coming to the tribe of Hored. Velmund quickly became a very good friend with the chief of the tribe and married his daughter. Velmund stayed there for 10 years, starting a family and starting over his life. The chief felt sorry for Velmund for losing his tribe and therefore gave him an army to fight back with after 10 years of Velmund being in his tribe. Velmund quickly went to take back his tribe and on the fields of Elaen he met the opposing army, which he defeated. Velmund became king of his father’s tribe and eventually he became king of Hored too. Seeing how much potential the tribes had when they worked together, Velmund decided to unite the humans of Tarland. As Velmund swept through Tarland, conquering the tribes, his men got the name ‘Dasiks’ from the human word for horsemen, which they were famous for being. The name later became a name for all humans in Tarland. Velmund finished his conquerings by conquering the Olik tribe on the shores of the great western sea. He became the king of the humans in Tarland and his descendants reigned until the fall of their kingdom.
The tribes that Velmund had defeated dind't want Velmund to have all the power himself. Therefore they decided, together with Velmund, that the wisest man of each tribe should meet every now and then to discuss both politics and religious matters and then give advice to the king about the issues. They always met on the foot of a lonely hill called Oltas between the city's of Tidenheim and Veniul where a perfect circle of flowers grew that never died. This krans, as it was called (meaning council), became the first and highest krans, a religious tradition in Aganism today. Although today's kranses only discuss religious matters.
