Mythology

Most Vamans will say that their land has no mythology, and that whatever gods created it have long since abandoned it.

Akanism says Olayin Yetun exists outside time and space, and is responsible for the creation of all existence. Olayin Yetun made Riiga and set all things in motion, and then sat back and watched with uncaring eyes from a distance. Occasionally a single flake of his skin or a strand of his hair fell into Riiga and becomes a Hireos king for the people to follow called a varhas.

Prehistory

The largest tribe in Tasif were the Tasin people, who had several subsequent varhas. The Tasin then saw no varhas for many centuries. They split into smaller groups, the largest of which were the Tasifians, but even this group broke apart into smaller groups. It wasn't until the appearance of another varhas in 1000BD that the people in this area began to see larger civilisations grow.

Tasif Kingdom

East and West Tasif.

  • 1000BD The people renew a long-lasting tradition where they are ruled by a single long-lived god-king.
    • Varhas Moinamarvir ruled for the entire duration of this kingdom.
  • 950BD Akanism religion is founded.
  • 800BD Vidmaur city founded.
  • 750BD The kingdom lost its hold on West Tasif to smaller groups as Moinamarvir's health declined.
  • 700BD Moinamarvir passes away. The Tasif Kingdom breaks apart into dozens of portions.

Moinamarvir was the first Hireos ruler in the area, said to have lived from 1000BD - 700BD. During his time and in subsequent Vaman kingdoms, the entire society relied on a single long-lived god-king, and when he died, their entire kingdom collapsed. He claimed to have been a descendant of Olayin Yetun, making this the earliest mention of the Akanism religion.
