Title: Religion in Fantasy

Status: confirmed

Proposed by: PRK


As an important part of many human lives, it is unsurprising that fantasy worlds often contain religions or spiritual belief structures. Whilst some of these are based quite closely on existing religions, many vary widely, with regularly incarnate deities, incredibly accurate prophecies or capricious deities playing board games with human souls. To what degree is religion a key component within a fantasy world, or when does it become overdone deus ex machina?
