Talmyrism is the collective term for the whole of the polytheistic Talmyri religion and mythology.

Talmyrism is one of the oldest practiced faiths on Qirsyllviar, dating back at least six thousand years.

Pantheon

The main Pantheon is divided into three groups: The Trynis, the Symphons, and the Igni.

The Trynis

The Trynis, the primary deities central to Talmyri faith and mythology, are a trio of sibling deities whom are the creators of the known world. They are led by Gnogton, the King of the Gods. Their consorts are included, and are considered counterparts of the main three as well as separate deities.

Name Representation
Gnogton God of the Land & King of the Gods Valji Goddess of Law & Order
Gnogton is oldest of the Trynis and the creator of the land of the known world. Popular myth says that he sculpted the land from mud and clay and hardened it with fire. Once the world and Haljno's living beings had reached a prime stage of maturity, Valji gave the world Law & Order.
Marijano Goddess of Rain & the Sea Haljno God of Life

The middle sibling of the Trynis and the creator of the sea.

Once Gnogton created the land and Scyterius stabilized the sky, Marijano made rain fall, flooding the deepest valleys and creating the seas.

Haljno gave life the world once the Trynis had stabilized it, allowing living things to evolve and flourish.
Scyterius God of the Sun & Sky Jukli Goddess of Wisdom & Learning
Scyterius is the youngest of the Trynis and creator of the skies.

Once Gnogton created the land, Scyterius stabilized the sky and coated the world in a "shield" to stop the "fire stars" from reaching the surface, and created the bright circle to give the world light.

Jukli gave wisdom and Intelligence to Haljno's living things once they evolved to sapience.

Jukli is also the patron deity of scholars.

Symphons

The Symphons are the children of the Trynis and their consorts. The Symphons are divided into three more groups:
  • The first are the Children of Gnogton, land gods and goddess that are the offspring of Gnogton & Valji; there are fourteen of them.
  • The second are the Children of Marijano, the sea gods and goddess that are the offspring of Marijano & Haljno; there are twelve of them.
  • The third are the Children of Scyterius, the sky gods and goddess that are the offspring of Scyterius & Jukli; there are thirteen of them.

Talmyri Zodiac

The Talmyri Zodiac are twenty-five animal deities worshiped by the Talmyri people, primarily in Talmyrnia and to a lesser extent in northern New Albion and parts of Drakyncia. These deities are believed to be the divine protectors of Talmyrnia.

This portion of Talmyri faith is governed as a whole from the Grand Temple of the Zodiac in Orskaydd, the capital of Talmyrnia, but each deity of the Zodiac also has a separate main temple, from which all smaller temples scattered around the country are governed, though some deities are more prevalent than others in different parts of the country.

Much like the Jiti Zodiac, followers of the Talmyri Zodiac believe that each animal takes turns accompanying the gods across the cosmos over the course of a cycle of years (a 25-year cycle in this case), and thus each year is named for that particular animal, just like the Jiti Zodiac. But unlike its Marlakcese counterpart, each animal has a proper name, and the Jiti Zodiac has less animals.

In addition to ruling the cosmos one year at a time, each animal deity represents a certain personality aspect that shapes a person, either positively or negatively.

The twenty-five deities, in order of the cycle, are:

The Zodiac is held in such high regard that even some of the many noble houses of Talmyrnia take their sigils after the animals of the Zodiac in one form or another.

Additionally, one major practice among adherents is that, on a person's twelfth birthday they are presented with an idol of the animal deity in whose year they were born. It is believed that the Zodiac member guides that person throughout their life.
