Religion is paramount in Elegy, one of the last towns still sporting a habitable Old Kingdom tower. Locals fervently worship a statue of the Ivy Eyed Goddess. The locals say that the people of the Old Kingdom had the power to create gods. The most powerful of these were two sisters: the Ivy Eyed Goddess and the Scarlet Eyed Goddess. Having solved all the problems of the universe, the Scarlet Eyed Goddess became bored and sought to destroy the Old Kingdom, an idea which horrified the Ivy Eyed Goddess. After much arguing they came to a compromise. A small number of people could live on, but in a tainted and plagued world that would never afford them the ability to create gods again. Thus began the New Kingdom, and the residents of Elegy suggest that everyone owes their existence to the kind-hearted Ivy Eyed Goddess.
