Afterlife

The spirit world

It is common knowledge that when a person dies his or her spirit lives on. Spirit seem to exist on Eonil and can be summoned back to appear in ‘the land of the living’ by witches. The popular and leading theory is that spirits live in a place called the spirit world. According to spirits that have spoken about this world it is a world that seems to be oddly similar to Eonil, yet everything is ethereal. Some would say it’s simply a manifestation of the familiar surroundings of the spirit but many think the spirit world is the same as Eonil, just a different realm or dimension.

Not much is known about the spirit world or what the rules are of going there. No one knows when exactly it was created, or even if it was created at all. Some scholars suggest that the spirit world might be as old as Eonil herself. It is common knowledge however that there are two versions of the Spirit world, Jin’til and Vek’til. Many people believe that both words might be from the divine language, roughly translating into the upper world and the underworld.

Jin’til

Jin’til is the place where someone’s spirit goes after death when they were not evil. The general assumption is that there are some lines a person shouldn’t cross and if they die their spirit will go to Jin’til. This line however is not very clear, but the popular believe is that it’s about not killing someone for personal gain, not doing anything unforgivably evil and that sort of things. Jin’til is supposed to be some sort of paradise, some people would even go so far to say that going to Jin’til is a reward for living good and honest.

Vek’til

Vek’til is also commonly known among the people of Eonil. It is the place where evil goes after it’s killed or they die. It’s the place a spirit goes when they did cross the line. It is unclear if crossing the line is a one way ticket or if a person can redeem themselves to still be able to go to Jin’til instead of Vek’til. These believes are vastly different from person to person. Some people claim that once you crossed the line there is no going back, others think that a person’s actions over their entire lives will be looked at when they die, like it’s some kind of scale that decides if one goes to Jin’til or Vek’til. Both believes are used as arguments to try and keep people from doing things that are considered to be evil, or to try and get someone who’s done something that is considered evil to better their lives in hopes of not having to go to Vek’til. Where Jin’til is described as some sort of paradise, Vek’til is often described as a place where spirits live in constant fear or agony, sometimes even like a prison where the spirits will endure the harm they have caused when they were still alive. It is unclear however how much of this is true, or just stories to scare people into being good.
