Church of the Destroyer

The Church of the Destroyer is a sub-sect of the Church of the Three, and is based on the sacred canon Truth Through Destruction, itself one interpretation of the Book of Ia. The Destroyer is viewed as a part of the trinity known as The Three, and is the destruction inherent in all existence. Praise of the Destroyer takes place through embracing one’s innate destructive tendencies and defying one’s final death for as long as possible. In most cases, adherents revel in their staving off of Destruction through elaborate celebrations and services that appear outright gaudy and facile to the other sects.

The Church of the Destroyer is centered in Clensa along with the other three churches (the Church of the Three, Church of the Creator, and Scales of the Preserver). On a more practical level in society, the Church deals with the dead: funerary rites and celebrations comprise the bulk of the average person’s experience with the Church. The Church also attempts render assistance when natural disasters or plague strikes; though usually they simply put the hopeless out of their misery instead of doing all they can to heal the afflicted as would the Church of the Creator. They also provide help when random scourges of undead or demons threaten the population by controlling them or condemning them to final destruction; they are often blamed for bringing about such things in the first place by the populace, however.
