The majority of conventional religions revere above all others a single supreme deity known as Eo. Naturally, Eo has many different names in different languages and amongst different peoples, but this is the simplest and most universally recognised.
Though much of the world reveres the same god, there is no paucity of variety in the ways in which Eo is worshipped, and observed. The different churches vary greatly in laws, traditions, and teachings, depending on which prophets and teachers of history they favour.

The Revelations of Eo

In all the mainstream churches, it is traditional that Eo is revealed in several different ways. The following tables list all the Revelations of Eo, also known as Avatars, or Masks of Eo. Not all Revelations are observed in all traditions. Some clerics focus purely on one of the Revelations, and experience Eo only in that way.
