Description[]

"The Anabaptists are a branch of Christianity originating from 16th century Europe, and are the forebears of American groups such as the Amish, Hutterites and Mennonites, which banded together to survive the post-cataclysm world. Anabaptists believe Christians should remain separate from the rest of the world, refuse to hold office, and refrain from violence except when absolutely necessary. These tenets make life after the apocalypse difficult, and often quite short." ― In-game description of Anabaptist

  • God Names: God, the Lord and Jesus

History[]

Anabaptism was largely practiced in what was once Eastern Pennsylvania, with most (if not all) followers belonging to the Kingdom of Deitscherei. After the Sedevacantist line of Rodham died out, the Anabaptist line of Groot took over Hudsonia, converting much of the Kingdom.

Outside influences would force the Anabaptists to adapt to the hostile post-Event world. After the murder of Kaynich Abram II of Deitscherei by the Americanist President Smithson, the Anabaptists betrayed their pacifist tenets to exact revenge on the Americanists. Since then, the mainstream Anabaptist faith (while still more peaceful then most religions of America) has disregarded some of their pacifist beliefs. In doing so, the Anabaptists became a force to be reckoned with in the Mid-Atlantic region of America.

Historically, the Anabaptists greatest rivals have been the Americanists, with the conflicts killing both Keenichs and Presidents. Even now their holy site Frederick, just south from the Deitscherei kingdom, is held by Americanists. Meanwhile, the factory-worshiping Rust Cultists have taken over Pittsburgh in the west of old Pennsylvania due to its rich industrial history.

Holy Sites[]

  • Philadelphia
  • Frederick
  • Lehigh
  • Schuylkill
  • Yohogania

While all the Anabaptist holy sites are in close proximity to each other, with all of them being in the area of old Pennsylvania or Maryland, all but two of the holy sites (Bethlehem and Lengesch) are not held by Anabaptists. Frederick, just south from the Deitscherei kingdom, is held by Americanists. Meanwhile, the factory-worshiping Rust Cultists have taken over Pittsburgh in the west of old Pennsylvania due to its rich industrial history.
