Faith since the Awakening has been a little touch and go. So far two full on faiths have been relatively dominant in the area of Clanshome, with one more being little heard of but practiced in Crestfall to the south. Some faithful Awoke with simply a strong faith in an ideal, with visions of a Deity or Patron Spirit coming over time.
Applied to character creation, this means that players who wish to have faith are encouraged to come up with a few tenets that their characters adhere to and receive power from (if Divine sourced), involving me if they care to, optionally coming up with a general idea of what their first vision might have been or might yet be. I will help in assigning domains and channel divinitys if necessary, and we run with it from there.
