IC


Isles Religious Convention; also known as Marpha Town Religious Conference is an international event with ambitions of creating an Isles-wide dialogue of faiths prevalent and existent in the Isles nations and ethnic groups. The Isles Religious Convention is supposed to become the largest and most inclusive gathering of all faiths and traditions of the Western Isles.

What: Isles Religious Convention or Marpha Town Religious Conference
Where: Conference Hall, Marpha Town, Akar and Thakali Island
By: Athara Magarati Ministry of Culture and Tourism and Athara Magarat National Council of Ethnic Groups in Association with the Government and Citizens of Akar and Thakali Island
Cost: $200 and $100 for Students




Who Should Attend?

    • Those who are concerned about war, terrorism, and hatred.

    • Those who care for creation and are worried about climate change.

    • Those who are troubled by the widening wealth gap and wasteful consumption.

    • And finally care for religions and nations working together in harmony for the good of humanity.

What Else?

    • Training in dialogue, interfaith activism, fundraising, and organizing.

    • Religious music, films, exhibits and performances from all over the Isles.

    • Shopping for ethnic, international, and religious books and goods.




The Main Attraction?


Have live experience in a religious meeting as religious leaders discuss and share their faiths with others, point out the differences and similarities, encourage interfaith interactions and guide humanity on issue of war and violence, climate change, and wealth disparity, etc to name a few.

Participants are highly encouraged to share your faith, listen to others and ask questions in break-out sessions and circles.

Keomora - It's so goddamn diverse.

Tastreira - I get a Nepal/Tibet/Mongolian vibe from it.

Covonant - It's a different unique concept which is nice to have. I love that in TWI is not just Western modeled states but states of different cultures and ideologies which makes the RP more interesting.

Ah, more people are interested than I thought. :)

Any suggestions? I am open to some ideas that could be used since our IC hasn't started.

Instead of Orthodoxes, I might bring an preist of [yet unnamed] Aprosian polytheism, who could would give info on the religions of Aprosians, but also the culture which is deeply tied to the religion.

Also gonna emphasize on the fact that these guys have massive amounts of religious text...

I will sent an official from the Lardian government as a secular representative, and also a Lardain Protestant. There also might possibly be a representative from the Seaweed Order, which is a Lardian sea based religion.

Aye, everyone. Take it slow (the IC time is different from RL time in discussions like this one) and introduce your religious leaders.

And are you prepared to answer some questions? Should I make some of the NPC audience raise the questions or wait for more religious leaders to arrive and get started?

Holy cow, I didn't even intend to come up with such a backstory for Rhiannon Beathasdottir, the leader of the group from the Highland Republic...but I wanted to show a difference between the Owinn delegation all being governmental/bureaucratic/official people whereas the Highland ones are more like "'real' people" (if you catch my meaning).

Sure. Introduce them at the IC thread. Still waiting adequate number of religious leaders to arrive.

BTW, are they like Spiritualists or something (just a hunch)?

just that Taoism is the dominant faith, but culturally society has a very religion is a private thing between person and faith so keeps a very hands off approach. the freedom of belief having now been cemented by centuries of habit, leads to a very diverse profile of spirituality...
