Religious Texts
At some point in the past, each of the gods expressed his commands through the written word. Typically, a saint or cleric of the faith actually recorded the doctrine for the layman, although some faiths claim the god wrote the original words personally. The primary source of doctrine among most faiths came from the content of the canon.

Considering its prime importance within the faith, the canon is a prominent possession of clerics and followers. Among clerics of importance, the canon is mandatory. Followers who wish to appear sincere find that even grand largesse carries little weight unless backed up by ownership of a canon.

Other Dogmatic Texts
In addition to the canon, many other religious texts abound within each faith. Most religions have one or more texts that either extend the original canon or contain in-depth commentary of the canon. Such texts vary greatly in scope, acceptance and authority.

In addition to these documents, several ancient prophetic tomes exist that for various reasons are considered holy by several religions. Probably the most famous is the Kabataroth. Written by a mad Prophet, it covers literally hundreds of topics, most of them undecipherable. Some scholars have spent their lifetimes studying the Kabataroth with little or no progress. The bits of information that make sense deal with everything from predicting the weather to signs of the Time of the Void to the return of Emperor Thedorus. In reality, each passage could be interpreted in multiple ways, so pragmatic types find little use in the Kabataroth and similar prophetic texts.
