Civilopedia - Whoward

Whoward the Beneficent, the Lord God of the Fifth Era, is the Creator Deity of Civ V Modding and one of the Ancients of Modding - one of the so-called 'Arms of Sid Meier.' He is credited with the creation and diffusion of the Holy DLL - a source tool by which mortal kind could enjoy the fruits of DLL Modding. As such, He is one of the few Ancients to have bestown His knowledge of DLL Modding to mortals and is therefore one of the few Ancients to be openly venerated.

Gazeboan Whowardism
  • Gazebo
Gazeboan Whowardism is a splinter religion of Whowardism, the original word of the Lord God Whoward centred on the Holy DLL. With the 'Great Disappearance' of the Lord God Whoward, Pope Gazebo began compiling a new testament in early 2015. However, the Lord God Whoward's return in October 2015 culminated in a schism. Whowardism thus splintered into Orthodox Whowardism and Gazeboan Whowardism.
Orthodox Whowardism
  • Whoward
Orthodox Whowardism is the original word of the Lord God Whoward, known also as DLL - Various Mod Components, or simply as Whowardism. It is upon Whowardism that Gazeboan Whowardism is based, however, as OW doctrine does not recognise the changes made by Pope Gazebo to the Holy DLL, Whowardism splintered in two, with Orthodox Whowardism adhering only to Lord God Whoward's original teachings.
