Nephism

Purpose and Introduction

The Flag and Insignia of Nephism

Nephism is a mysterious and benevolent force in the Auralian Realm. Residing in every living being, in every heart and soul, this positive energy is everywhere, binding all sentient beings together as one. Nephism is based around the worship of monotheistic and omnipotent God King Nephmir II. His holy writ (the Book of Neph) is a Living Testament, into which more material is added on a regular basis.

Nephism's existence predates the creation of Auralia, but did not flourish until it's creation. As the night of June 6th, Lord Nephmir created Auralia, from the ashes of another realm, a glorious phoenix rose, blazing a path to realm of Gold. From that path Nephmir called to his followers and slowly they came at first, then more and more came to the glorious realm. Seeing the need for order, Lord Nephmir, created the Tribunal to carefully guide his wondrous realm. As Lord Nephmir let the tribunal guide Auralia, he took militaristic matters into his own hand, he created the Auralia Knights! Which he leads by his divine iron fist to bring Nephism unto the unbelievers and sinners of the universe.

As the binding will of Nephism brings all beings together, some refuse to understand it or just plainly become ignorant of it so it is becomes a believer's ultimate goal to spread the teachings and wisdom of Lord Nephmir to the unknowing and liberate their minds from the shackles of ignorance. We aim to cleanse the universe of unbelievers, we will do this by any means possible.
