WorldBuilding Blog Hop – Day 2: History and Politics

It it is Day 2 of Sharon Bayliss’s Worldbuilding Blog Hop in honor of her upcoming novel, The Charge.

History and Politics is where I’m very weak in my story world. So, I’m going to throw something out there that I’m sure needs some work but it’s what is in my head at the moment. So I will go with a bit of the history that makes for some interesting times.

As with the creatures that roam the land and the sky, so do the dead and spirits. No one knows when exactly that the spirits of the deceased and Gods had started to appear for people to see. It could have been the great Meteor Shower forty years ago where the projectiles screamed through the atmosphere and made multiple hits on the ground. What made it a great Meteor shower was that it involved the entire planet. It wasn’t just a section of the country or a different continent. Everyone was witness to the sight as the meteors streamed through the air like falling stars. It left behind an aurora borealis effect.

People thought it was just a very strange phenomenon until they would go to their places of worship and see spectres of their gods. Or protective spirits being visible. Those of the truly faithful swarmed to the churches, their faith renewed while others took the other path.

There are some areas that were especially hard hit by a larger meteor. They seemed to be focused to certain areas such as the Mayan ruins, Aztec Ruins, North of Japan, the center of Africa, in the sea between the southern States of United America and Haiti. Old Gods that had been relegated to the text books came forward. People have claimed to see Baron Samedi. Quetzalcoatl has been seen around the ruins of the Aztecs. Japanese temples have their guardian spirits that protect the monks from evil.

Each section of the world has their own religion and there are also the splinter religions that have come forth because of the appearances. No one knows if the Gods will remain or if they will fade away. It’s something that they will have to wait and see.

Edit: And I keep forgetting to put in the link for the others.

  1. One of the great things about this blog hop – something i kinda expected when I signed up, is I get to read what everyone else is doing. Being a sucker for alternative history, Harry Turtledove is one of my favorite authors – this is really appealing. Thanks for stopping by and for ‘enticing’ me to stop by here.
