Mormonism is one of the faiths practiced in After the End. Mormon is part of the Latter-Day Saints religious group.

Description[]

"With roots in Ancient America's frontier, Mormonism has a solid hold on many parts of the Old West. Although based on Christian foundations, the Church of Latter-Day Saints has many additional books, customs, and traditions which have caused it to be treated differently from some elements of mainstream Christianity. With the chaos of the apocalypse, these attitudes were exacerbated, and Mormonism is widely treated as a wholly distinct entity from the Christian world of New Rome and the Protestantism of the East." ― In-Game description of Mormon

History[]

While Mormonism at it's beginning was spread out across the United States, American laws and the execution of Joseph Smith (the religions founder) caused Mormons to emigrate into new territories, where they would not be persecuted for their faith. Travelling along the Oregon trail from Nauvoo, Illinois to Salt Lake City, Mormons soon formed the provisional state of Deseret, though it was never recognized by the US, and the state was destroyed when the Utah Territory was created in 1850.

The Mormons took advantage of the chaos of the Event, and reorganized Utah into the Kingdom of Deseret, where most of them still reside in 2666 (as well as a few neighboring territories).

Trivia[]

  • Like many other religions in the game, Mormonism is an existing faith.
  • While in it's initial inception Mormonism allowed polygamy, this was removed and given to some of it's heresies in an attempt to better represent the Mormon faith, and add flavor to the otherwise bland heresies.
  • A Mormon expedition for Death Valley is the only legitimate way to obtain the kingdom of Death valley in the current version.
