Description[]

"Trailwalker is a religion invested in the borderland, the crossings between flesh, soul, and dream. Trailwalkers believe in an omnipresent spiritual plane called the Frontier, ruled by a pantheon headed by the Almighty Spirit of the West. In the beginning, there was only the Frontier, and men lived short and harsh lives. However, the Almighty Spirit took pity on humanity and, with the help of his otherworldly servants, cleaved the Range from the Frontier. The Range was the new home of humanity, where men could live free lives. However, in exchange for this gift, the Almighty Spirit asked humanity to follow the Trails, the righteous paths through life. Mankind at first heeded his words, but eventually turned away from the Trails and took the Range for granted. In anger, the Almighty Spirit briefly reunited the Frontier and the Range, destroying mankind's works. Mankind should never again stray from the Trails." ― Tailwalker description from the game

Trivia[]

  • The Trailwalker faith seems to be mainly inspired by the Wild West
  • Lewison Clark is a reference to Lewis and Clark though the Trailwalkers have merged both into one explorer.
  • Sly Coyote much like in Native American lore is a trickster though one who at times uses his cunning for good. He is a predator all the same, and his rivalry with Roadrunner is a nod to the Wile E. Coyote Looney Tune shorts.
  • The Ghost Riders are a reference to the the John Cash song 'Riders in the Sky'. From it we can gather that becoming such is considered the fate of the wicked in the Trailwalker faith. To forever chase an unwranglable herd of evil cattle for all eternity atop the back of ornery steeds.
