...And The Darkness Spoke...
The name of the religon practiced by Jakatts. The Jakatts refer to the world as “Takta Ker” or The Living Land. In Keta Kalles the universe is god – they are on and the same. This god(dess) Lanala has no senses of her own with which to enjoy the universe that is herself. So Jakatts provide this experience to Lanala by reveling and indulging as intensely as possible in all sensation, whether it be the joy of food, the ecstacy of sex or the pain of disembowelment. Lanala receives these sensations as offerings and prayers and gives divine aid and power in return.
The religon is not hierarchical and only loosely organised. Tribes of Jakatts are all roughly equivalent in Keta Kalles, though each tribe has two priests to handle religous afffairs beyond the intimate and personal of Keta Kalles. The Optant is the priest of the “living” and the Gotak is the priest of the dead. Overall is the great leader; one Baruk Kaah, who is the chief priest of Lanala and Saar of all the tribes of The Living Land.
