Slavic Mythology is unique from other ancient religons like the Greeks or the Romans. For starters the Slavs believed that their gods were their equal and not lords that ruled above them. Spirits and superstition were common and some of their traditions are still carried out in Slavic countries today. Very little  books and information has survived since the time of the Ancient Slavs, most of their records were destroyed when Christianity began to spread.  Even less material on the subject has been translated into English and much what is available is inaccurate.  Because of this we wanted to create a basic guide that can be used to your advantage while playing the game. We will continually add to this page as we continue to develop quests

Perun (pronounced Peroon)- God of thunder and lightning, patron of warriors. He is often presented as the highest god of the Slavic pantheon. He wielded an axe, many ancient amulets have been found in the shape of Perun's axe.
