Zhang-Tow is a religious philosophy originating in the Beladathi Empire. It mandates that all its followers must renounce the gods as being nothing more than powerful celestial beings, as opposed to the true creators. It further stresses the importance of personal sacrifice in order to achieve enlightenment, and also preaches the value of chaos as a social tool, encouraging its followers to always fight the status quo. The formal religious body was eliminated during the Fire Crusade, along with most of its followers, although many Beladathians still continued practicing Zhang-Tow in private, particularly in isolated monasteries, and it has begun spreading to the world at large. Zhang-Tow is favored by monks, bards, and occasionally barbarians, fighters or rogues.
