    This looks really interesting! As a suggestion, for your ‘God of the Rings’ color code, I’d also include religions from other fantasy settings than Lord of the Rings, such as A Song of Ice and Fire and The Elder Scrolls, so that those can go ahead and be included as well.

    Also, I’m curious; I was under the impression that all of the races save the orcs, goblins, etc. worshipped Eru Iluvatar, while the orcs worshipped Melkor, which would leave only two religions from Lord of the Rings to be covered.

    Despite that, the Dwarves would have veey different beliefs than the Numenorreans, while Belfalas would have a variety of the Dunedain religion itself (mostly devoted to Uinen). Unfortunately I am not familiar with Elder Scrolls, nor Ice and Fire , to do so I would need a strctured list.

    Elder Scrolls are easy, what with the pantheon of regular gods being pretty much the only religion, with Daedra worshippers, random hippies, the Thalmor, and the Kahjit/Argonians to worry about outside of that.

    I could not orientate myself in the Japanese sects, so I have only listed Shinto, Ryukyan and Tenrikyo. I am open to suggestions, and will include all relevant groups upon demand.

    This isn't for Japan, but could you add the Indo-Greek religion?

    They appear to practice some form of syncretism, how should I classify it?

    It depends; if you plan to do a section on syncretic religions, I'd just put it there. Otherwise, I think it would fit well under the Dharmic group, as it seems to be full of religions that are similar to Hinduism, but still religiously distinct.

    If you do add in syncretic religions, I would love to see Greco-Buddhism.

    I think it would be easier to add syncretism by hashing the colors, similar to joint occupation on the political schemes.

    I must admit this is amazing work Tomislav, could we (at some point in the future) have a preliminary glimpse of what all the religions you have done so far look like in one single picture, rather than in all seperate parts?

    Keep it up, the work is awesome,

    It was too big to upload it as one file :(. No corrections, nothing new, just uniting the already existing parts

    You have "Knights Hospitalier / Johanites". In real life, I've seen "Knights Hospitaller" and "Knights of St. John". Never that odd -ier ending or Johanites (or even "Johnites").

    The Johanites actually existed, but were a different group altogrther.

    Where would an apocalyptic sect/mass-suicide cult à la People's Temple or Order of the Solar Temple fit in?
