A few notes for today that folk might find interesting:
The Aeolian Malkioni henotheist sect
The Aeolian school of Malkionism worship the Invisible God as the supreme Creator, He is the Source, the Egg of Wonder, the One. The Invisible God is sometimes depicted as an elderly god with thirteen (eight powers plus five elements) heads and four arms. He holds no weapons, but instead a measuring stick, a book, and string of eyes. He is crowned.
The Invisible God is viewed as too remote and too unapproachable to directly worship. Instead, the Esvularings worship Orlanth, Chalana Arroy, Issaries, Lhankor Mhy, and Eurmal as personifications/emanations of the Creator. Of these, Orlanth is most important. These gods have consorts who are worshiped in combination with them.
Much of Aeolian philosophy focuses on the series of emanations from the Invisible God to the Cosmic Court down to the gods and then down to mortals. The wars of the gods are viewed as part of the ongoing process of creation until the Unholy Trio rebel against creation and bring Chaos to destroy the universe. The cosmos is saved by the Lightbringers’ Quest.
The Aeolians claim that when Malkion was expelled from the Kingdom of Logic, he came to what is now Kethaela where he founded New Malkonwal. When Malkion was killed in the Gods War, they long bemoaned his loss until the Invisible God sent Orlanth to restore the cosmos with the Cosmic Compromise. The Aeolians practice sorcery but also sacrifice to gods and spirits.
