After the End Fanfork Wiki

Gracia Divina was one of the Religions practiced in After the End. Gracia Divina was part of the Cult of Saints religious group. While it had been removed from the game map prior to the 3.33 (NAZU) version of the mod it was still in the game files allowing it to rise as a heresy of the Sagrado Corazón religion before an update finally removed the files associated with Gracia Divina. Though an argument can be made for it to be restored to the mod it is unknown if the developers will consider such a restoration. Former Gracia Divina lands have become Patria Grande territory, with Patria Grande being a new religion that has taken the Columbian aspects of Gracia Divina's El Liberator saint to more nationalistic levels as a religion formed around Bolivar and two other figures of Columbian history. It can be considered close, but not specifically parallel, to the Americanist devotion to former Presidents.

Description[]

"The adherents of Gracia Divina hold belief in the karma-like system of 'divine grace'. They believe that the greater piety and devoutness shown in life, the more fortunate their lives will become, that they literally become graced by the divine. They believe especially that devotion to specific saints/deities (the terms have been interchangeable in Gracia Divina) will lead to that Saint becoming their patron, and directly influence their lives. This can lead to very zealous devotion as the worshiper takes on an extremely personal and intimate connection with their patron." ― In-Game description of Gracia Divina

History[]

While most of the Gracia Divina world was once part of the Roman Catholic Church, differences in practice and belief, combined with the separation from Rome, led to the evolution of a new religion entirely. While still holding on to some traditionally Catholic practices, Gracia Divina has largely abandoned the Holy Trinity in favor of the Saints.

In-Game Features[]

The primary feature of Gracia Divina is that adherents may follow one of three saints.

  • El Libertador - Patron saint of battle and righteous conflict, his militant followers seek to liberate their minds from fear. Followers may also proclaim they're descendants from El Libertador, should they unify Gran Colombia.
  • El Dorado - Adherents associate gold with the creative power of the divine, and worship a mystical figure known only as "The Golden King".
  • Immaculado Corazón - The immaculate Saints embody overwhelming love, divine grace, devotion, unity, and personal sacrifice.

As of 2666, Gracia Divina had a 40.0 moral authority.

A temple holder of the Gracia Divina faith is called a Padre.

There was no religious head.

Trivia[]

  • The three saints of Gracia Divina do have Patria Grande equivalents in the current version; El Liberador being Bolivar, El Dorado giving benefits akin to that of Santander, and Immaculado Corazon having Manuelita as a comparative with both focusing on love in some aspect.
