PostSubject: A Holy Mountain   Wed Oct 22, 2008 4:45 pm

"The sacred mountain of the Kiltia sect, located to the north of the Jagd Ramoora. The temple was built here by believers to mark the place where the founder of the Light of Kiltia began to spread the teachings. There are accounts of the holy city here dating back to writings from the age of the Galtean Alliance. In its long history, Mt. Bur-Omisace has never fallen under the control of any foreign power. On the understanding that Kiltia's followers would exempt themselves from political dealings in other lands, Kingdom and Empire both formed a pact to guarantee the holy city's independence, an agreement which stands to this day. It would not be an error to call Mt. Bur-Omisace itself a shrine to Kiltia. Apart from the temples, there are only a few residences, with roadside shops catering to the steady stream of pilgrims. In recent years, refugees from war-torn lands have gathered here, forming camps on part of the mountain. The priests of Kiltia give them aid that they might live here in peace. As Mt. Bur-Omisace is surrounded by jagd, the faithful must cross the Inner Naldoan Sea by boat in their pilgramige to the holy city."

For years, the Kiltia have lived here, practicing their faith, and accepting refugees from all over Ivalice, giving them food and shelter. Pilgrims will also make a spiritual trip to the mountain, in hopes of becoming more enlightened. However, in these times of war, the mountain has seen more refugees than pilgrims, and people who have lost their homes now live on the steep slope leading up to the temple.

When the Gran Kiltias Anastasis was murdered by Judge Bergan during an invasion by the Empire to retieve Larsa, his death not only devastated Kiltas and refugees alike, but undid the seal that kept Fafnir at bay, placing all of Mt. Bur-Omnisace in a endless rain. But it took Fafnir's defeat and the sacrifice of a Kiltas named Ieeha, ending the rain, to allow the residents of Mt. Bur-Omisace to begin anew and rebuilt what they lost with the aid of the Viera Ieeha befriended.

The major figure of an ancient religion, Gran Kiltias Anastasis, "dreams" in the Kiltian temple on top of the summit.

Mt. Bur-Omisace is located just to the east of the Paramina Rift.
