Tenets are the building blocks of the religion. Each tenet gives clues to the disciples and followers about how they should live and what activities they should do during the days of preparation; for instance, a disciple might recite a poem in reaction to the Religious Poetry tenet and may gain power or bonuses if the poem is received well or the reverse if it flops. Also, a tenet either unlocks two traditions or a new ritual dedication.
Tenets are grouped into three types: Adoration, Social, and Philosophy. The commandment that forms the basis of the religion determines which tenets are available and you spend Development Sparks to adopt each tenet. In addition, after defeating the city of an island, you may choose to adopt a tenet from the defeated religion.
Adoration Tenets[edit | edit source]
Each Adoration tenet increases the faith of all disciples by 10.
You may choose one Adoration tenet to unlock a dedication type for enhancing rituals:
- Nature & Animal Dedication
- Symbolic Dedication
- Celestial Dedication
- Dark Dedication
This activates the Dedicate Statue God action, which lets the followers build a statue symbolize the Commandment of your religion.
The remaining tenets unlock various traditions.
