[Monday] Idea of the Week

Rather than having a cohesive canon for us to build off of, we’re all blending together our ideas, throwing them at the wall until we say, “That fits!” Or until we shake our heads and say, “No, that doesn’t work.” It’s interesting that we are reverse-engineering this way: starting with fan stories and figuring out the canon from them. But we know the gods through us, so I suppose that’s how it has to happen.

About the Faith
The Otherfaith is a modern polytheistic religion. We are urban-centric, technology-loving, and always keep our eyes to the future. We were born from the modern Pagan and polytheist movements, and from them we have grown and become new, modern, evolving - a new faith. In 2015, we go into this our fifth year and seek to create more solid practices and structures for the faith.
