The faith of the All Father, the Red Faith is currently the standing religion for the Earldom of Nordengrad
The Red Faith was created 1300, it was formed by Thoromir I Ruric, during the early ages of the House Ruric
In the year 1300, Thoromir Ruric was caught in a horrific snow storm. He was about to reach his end, then a spirtual like figure appeared infront of him carrying a flame (later known as the All-Father), the figure and its flame guided his way out from the storm and into saftey, thus marked the beginning of the Red Faith religion, marking Thoromir as the very first High Keeper.
Edvard I Ruric
After the death of his father, Edvard continued the ways of the All-Father, having it become rather successful for a large amount of time, until relations began to soar with the Dwarves and the Oren Empire. Noted to have failed talks of diplomacy and prepared for a ultimate demise of his people and the All-Father religion, he was overthrown by his younger brother, after this Edvard dissappeared.
Sven I Ruric
Thomas I Ruric
After taking up the mantle of House Ruric and the title of High Keeper from Sven Ruric, his people was quickly put into a state of war during the Third Rurikid Uprising which lead to his people and the religion to be almost destroyed only having a few hundred people live after the devastating loss at the Sack of Seahelm, he then which defected to his allies in the Dreadlands where he would live out trying to regrow his house and the Red Faith religion.
Note: Thomas Ruric was the final Ruric to have held both titles of King and High Keeper.

Elected by Thoromir II Ruric, in his early years as High Keeper, Rae Arden began a massive reformation of the faith, converting almost the entire population of the Earldoms capital of Nordengrad, Rae would later establish a Red Faith temple, the size of the Ruric temple, if not bigger, housing all members of the Red Faith, being a home to all those who wish to offer gifts to the AllFather, Rae would then further himself by continuing minor work upon the Red Scrolls, alongside the greatest scholars in Nordengrad. Throughout the majority of Raes reign as High keeper, it remained to be rather inactive only having merely a few priests to assist him in matters, although after the completion of the Red Faith Temple, it greatly improved the numbers within the Red faith. Although after the start of the Third Atlas Coalition War, Rae knew that it would be the end of him if they were to lose the Siege of Nordengrad, so he greatly worked to recruit numerous members to the faith, being successful in doing so, he made the faith once again an active entity within Nordengrad, although this would be a short lasted victory as when the time came of the Siege of Nordengrad, Rae fought valiently but fell to an unknown Renatian Soldier.
