40k inspires me on NS a great deal. The inquisition and Templars are just a product of this. But there are somethings I just can't replicate. The Valkyrie drop ships are one. Best I could come up with is a Harrier like aircraft but the internal engine mechanics for such a design don't really allow for troop carry abilities. Helicopters win.
You know, there is a study about supersonic-capable troop transport that can hover. It looks like a stretched V-22 however. Protip, it doesn't swivel its wings but used an entirely different way to hover.
Well... when do we burn Xenos?
There are multiple of them on NS.
There are many different religions in the Commonwealth, protestants are probably the biggest group but as a whole the Commonwealth leans heavily towards being very secular.
However there is alot of bad blood between the Morridanes and the Catholic Church stemming from Church institutions (like the Magdalene asylums) in the days when Morrdh was a Stevidian penal colony. The Church went from effectively playing a large role in the state (similar to Ireland) to being relegated to the sidelines over the past century or so.
In Deamonopolis, Islam of the Sufi variety is by far the largest religion and there's a fairly significant Christian minority (~30%) Roman Catholics.
Christians, and Muslims and Jews as well, make up a very very small percentage of the Sumerian population, and are mostly immigrants. The bulk of the population are polytheistic pagans, and the state supported "church" is that very national polytheism. The number of non-Sumerian pagans has dwindled over the last thousand years after successive civil wars, with most non-Sumerian populations either being killed off or converting. Since the last civil war ended before 1930 (Not primarily a religious war either) the non-Sumerian pagan population has remained at or around 10% of the population, outnumbering the 2-3% that constitutes all Abrahamic religions in Sumer combined.
Well Nihonese Christianity has this specific that the churches (since churches operate in their area and are, in general, independent from each other) put extremely big emphasis on "moral authorities (Shikken") and practical living according to the faith. This causes that plenty of Kogyokist Christians who aren't religious at all or simply don't care about the supernatural stuff, see the bible as "greatest moral tale of all". Their reasoning is simple - "if God didn't exist, he should have been invented". That is why Christianity in Nihon has so big influence upon society. Majority of Nihonese still believe in supernatural though. It is also not like churches commend this kind of approach, but faith in Nihon is seen mostly as personal affair. It is supplemented by ethical codes - Nihonese Bushido being most known one - that are in general based on it and which set social norms.
Still, most of churches tend to interpret Bible literally - although it can't be said that Kogyokist churches agree on anything. They are separate from each other, working only on local basis, and even though theological schools exist, two churches being near each other may have totally different ideas over such basic doctrines as salvation or trinity.
