How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love Eberron
Path of Inspiration
The Inspired have spread a faith based on a dichtomy between good and evil spirits (il-altas and il-altavars, respectively), both trying to influence the world. Every person has a role and a specific destiny. When one follows il-altas, they stick to their fate, and they can be reincarnated as the powerful and benevolent Inspired, who literally share a body with an il-altas. Succumbing to the temptation of the il-altavars, and straying from your chosen destiny, will bring you back as a lower creature, making life harder and less rewarding. The il-altavars can be represented as any force not in line with Inspired doctrine: other religions, magic, primal energies, any ideas or forces that oppose the il-altas.
This cycle of reincarnation is closely bound to race: ogres and shifters have humanoid shapes, but they are still considered below humanity, which is a necessary step to Inspiration. Changelings are a step above humans, spiritually and physically malleable, and thus more prepared for Inspiration.
Path followers do not worship at any temples; their work is a symbol of their adherence to their destiny and rejection of il-altavars. But each week also allows time for the faithful to come around a hanbalani and exult in the glow of the Inspired’s power.
