 Post subject: Algol's religion
PostPosted: Tue Sep 15, '20, 5:13 pm 
In Phantasy Star 1, there are churches with crosses, and the priest who revives folks says some incantation.

What do you suppose this original, extinct (except maybe to Espers) religion is?

In Phantasy Star II, Lutz offers a prayer to the "God of Algol" to heal you.

In Phantasy Star III, while not explicitly stated to be churches, the large churchlike buildings with the churchlike music and priest-like men who raise your party, appear to fill some sort of role akin to religion. (These could be a combination of church and the PSII hospitals, as in the upper floors of this PS3 building, there are females in sexy nurse outfits, who detox poison.)

You'd assume there is religion, extinct or extant, but this is all I got.
( Outside of the Phantasy Stat 1 exgenesis that states LaSheic was visited by "dark priests" of some obviously evil religion.)

Anyone got any takes on this, objective or otherwise?

I guess it goes without saying, too, that Zio, also headed a religion of sorts.

Bonus points for Zio, stating upon his death, "Why do you abandon me?," much like another messiah familiar on our planet of earth.

The Religion in Algol seems to be a very strange one ! Not really a religion but maybe more than distant beliefs ? Hard to tell ! :)

And yet, we know nothing of Dezo's religion really. Besides Corona/Gumbious Temple being akin to their version of the Temple Mount on our Earth. And their veneration of fire, akin to our Parsi's/Zoroastrian's similar veneration of fire here on our Earth.

And then there is The Great Light, which really isnt described in terms as a god per se, but just more like a sufficiently advanced alien, who has limitations, otherwise he'd stamp out Profound Darkness like a bug.

True ! About the very strange incantations...the crosses are here, that is for sure....And the temples too there are so many signs of religious symbols finally. And in Phantasy Star II...No more ? ;)
