Druna

Druna is a religion found mainly in the west and south of Ruthyr. Its main tenets are that the Fey are divine beings, and that Man should worship them. Practiced in secret by most Drunics, the Druna faith is thought to be as old as the Covenanter faith, but there are relatively few worshippers left in Ruthyr due to its practice carrying the penalty of death. Before the Fey war the religion had reached the peak of its popularity with several rival sects acting on behalf of Fey lesders, but the deafeat of the 4 kingdoms left many Drunics isolated. Punitive laws and massacres by the Ruthyrian kings destroyed most of their number with remaining survivors going into hiding. Today it is thought that the Druics largely dwell in the west and south of thr country. Close study of Druna reveals many sects and variations between one group and another with little to no communication or organization between them there is little in common between one practitioner and another than this veneration of the Fey. Beyond the worship of the Fey each Drunic cult is quite distinct from the other, so much so that that some consider the Druna not to be a faith itself but rather a group if faiths. Some sects follow a single Fey who lords over them while others worship the names of dead Fey, and yet others believe in worshipping the entire Fey race. Some Drunic believe the Fey to be literal Gods, while others see them as enlightened beings, there are possibly dozens of other variations and even when two groups have the same beliefs they still do not nescessarily recognize each other as the same faiths. This variation within Drunic followers means there may be hundreds of different groups within the faith. Of course, exact numbers are hard to come by since Druna is practiced in secret in all but a few places. The faith is banned by the Covenanters, in most places and its members consider them evil. The order of the crimson crucible has as its mission to hunt and kill the Druna and disrupt their religious practices wherever they are found. Still, rumours persist of some people who practice Druna in the open but these are rare cases that take place in remote areas far to the west.
