The Long Vigil
The Articles of Faith
Church of the Seven Prophets
The Church of the Seven Prophets is the universal faith of humanity, and worships the god known as Elohim, the Maker of all Things and the Lord of Light. The message of Elohim was brought to humanity by seven prophets who each preached Elohim's message to the world and ascended to sit at his side.
