Something from the Old Days

While working on Religions for the Frontier I thought of this. Not sure if it counts as a religion and would like some input on those who know Yazirians better than me.

Followers of Khad-mar_ The Yazirian Life Enemy are a very misunderstood concept. It is not the drooling insane Yazirian stalking his enemy in the night. It is a total commitment of self to defeat someone or something. The problem arises that many Yazirians have no idea how they are going to go about defeating their life enemy.

Centuries ago Khad-mar took on as his life enemy, everyone else’s life enemy. She established a monastery where those who do not know how to proceed to defeat their life enemy can come. The monks there never ask who or what an initiate’s life enemy is. The initiates are taught meditation and basic martial arts and yoga and other mind sharpening techniques to prepare themselves. Advice on how to proceed with their mission is given only in cryptic sayings and metaphors never are they told how to proceed.

It has happened more than once that two who have chosen each other has life enemies have sat and trained next to each other. One unique part going to a Khad-mar monastery is that when leaving you can confirm your life enemy or abandon it with no loss of honor. It is considered that through the training of the Khad-mar a Yazirian can learn what they should really be doing with their life and strive toward that goal.

Sounds like a great job but where did you say we had to go?

I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
