Sunrise

The original pagan faith of the natives of Corelmire, most followers of the Sunrise religion were killed or converted when the Church of Asthorn forcibly converted the continent, although aspects of Sunrise are present in the Solar sect of the Church, popular only on Corelmire.

Sunrise is a belief in the Sun God, a benevolent deity who watches over the world from high in the sky, taking the form of the sun. Sunrise pagans believe night is a phase where the Sun God looks over his creations in distant parts of the world, and it is taboo to this day among the Corelmirish to be outdoors at night, as the Sun God does not watch over this time. Sunrisers believe that the Sun God controls all aspects of nature, and attribute such phenomena as evaporation and crop growth to his divine will. They place a very small amount of importance on individuality, seeing each person's responsibility as contributing to their society, enabling the Sun God's will to be done.

As a very peaceful people, the Sunrisers were easily conquered by the Church's expeditionary forces. Those who still follow the Sun God do so in secret on Corelmire, or have moved to live in the Yvethi Merchant League or the Albernecht Empire where they can worship more openly.
