The Pools of Flame and Tears
The Ashendents instead worship the goddess Ashenda, whose Tears pushed back the magma of the earth, revealing the caverns everyone calls home, and forming the Pools of Tears to sustain all. Every living creature was created simultaneously and all living things are equal, except for the frond plant, the fish, and the displacer beasts, non-sentient life made to serve the sentient. They believe that Ashenda cries for the release of all races from their squalid lives, and believe there is a better place they will end up when they die. They view heaven as up, toward their goddess, whose tears descend upon them to show them the way.
