To clarify, when I described the Inchoroi are "materialist" I don't mean that they don't acknowledge the existence of the Outside, nor that they "caught religion".

Upon reaching Earwa, the Inchoroi recognized the influence of the Outside, but expressly didn't "catch religion" - they approach even the Outside in a materialist way (as a source of the various sorcerous phenomena, and a dwelling place of powerful entities).

For mankind, however, the Outside appears to be something more; as well as being the font from which the gods spring, Achamian's candle illustration seems to indicate a kind of spiritual transcendence. I think this shows that there aren't "multiple worldviews" competing here (at least not with regard to the facts of existence). The influence of the Outside is plainly essential to the story of Earwa. view post
