... if you look before that, back to British druidism, or the Aztecs, mayans, Incas, or ancient china, you'll find human sacrifice.
hell, even neolithic cultures are suspected to have done it at some point
Yes, I'm aware that many cultures have human sacrifice,
where especially the Aztecs are infamous for the psychotic use of the ritual,
with the killing of thousands. (!)
I simply hadn't come across any historical evidence of ritual, human sacrifice in the Nordic cultures.

An ability to renounce all religion would be nice. It would pit people against you, and cause armies of the faithful to spawn and attack you and your territory. It would be like turning the game on "Hard Mode".

If it was in any way possible to have a chance to put you into a scene battle with an assassin while visiting any city, castle, or village, that would also be excellent. Priests with wicked looking daggers could jump you in an alley, or a valiant Knight of the Cross could charge at you in the middle of a village.

It could work like the "Silence the Merchant" quest faction Lords give you.

I like your ideas - and especially the possibility of being attacked while visiting cities, villages etc. would be really nice in native.

But I have to tell you that all progress on this mod has been stopped. Sadly.

I doubt that Nordic religion didn't give it a try at some point, I know I hear about Odin and sometimes Tyr were sacrificed to with human lives but I never really looked in on it. Everyone else did it, Romans have been known to on occasion (last major one I can think of being when they buried a pair of Celts and a pair of Greeks under the market place during the war with Hannibal, people tend to do this things more when its going bad and less when you making a whole empire). Even Christianity and Judiasism, Abraham was ordered to sacrifice his son, and he almost did except God said "give me the goat" at the last minute, clearly that means it was acceptable but got watered down like in most cultures to bull and goat sacrifices and to when we don't really sacrifice anything anymore.

for anyone who wants to know more, there is this book called the Edda or Prosa Edda.
it's like the ilias and odysee(i dont know if that translates) by homeros, only it's about the Norse/viking gods.  :D
sad that so much of the viking literature got ''lost'' in christain hands :( 
but maybe thats what makes it interesting.  makes me wonder how we will be remembered in a 1000/1500 years...:P

Is this mod not moving anymore? It's a pity.
