Dwemer Idolatry: 2 counties.
The desire to know more intensifies.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Dwemer Idolatry: 2 counties.
This is the current description of the Dwemer Idolatry faith:
An obscure folk belief found in some Reach tribes which settled in or around Dwemer ruins. Contrary to popular scholarship, they believe that the Dwemer were a beneficial precursor people who nurtured and guided the Reachmen in an ancient era. They value scholarship and wisdom, and believe that one day the Dwemer will return and lead them to a harmonious future.
The mod's earliest start date is 140 years before the start of ESO (2E 440 vs 2E 580). Suggestions aren't officially open, but the discord is the best place to propose/discuss ideas.The mod is set in late 2nd Era somtime after the events of ESO right? I just mentioned the Dawn cause they are probably the best known example of a specific version of a Daedra cult. While there are quite a few that could fit that for the era portrayed (or aren't too era specific) they are usually a lot more obscure and in some cases it might take a little a artistic liberty to portray them as anything other than a local variant of the cult.
If you are using UESP for sources, the "faction" lore pages and the "faction" and "religious" sections of the library pages actually have better info on various cults than the pages on Daedra lords (this is true for the gods generally) though you do have to sift through a lot of less relevant stuff too. If there is a specific place to make suggestions or even help out making the religions I'd be happy to trawl through the dregs of the wiki to scrape together some ideas.
The Tamriel Rebuilt/Project Tamriel community would be an excellent resource for obscure cults, both canonical and those created with (source faithful) artistic liberties.
We are always looking to other TES Fan Projects (TR/PT, BS, etc.) for inspiration - but EK is it's own project, with its own view on Tamriel and its own Lore. Also just implementing other peoples ideas without or with only few creative input from oneself isn't really fun.
So while you might encounter those or similar cults in EK2, they all will have a personal note.
If there's still a lore hole about the maomer, I still have the stuff i did for the ck2 mod sitting somewhere?
there was a really cool feathered serpent cult take of maomer religion on the official forums back in the day too, it would be cool for post-orgnum stuff if you dont want to go something original and if ESO hasnt done anything (still havent gotten around to ESO).
All those little heresies that I did for the old mod could work now too, as, Eight Divines but they think X is the most important to an extent that makes their society different, didnt work in ck2 but could with the faiths system?
I want to speak about special buildings in baronies -
