Mergerberger II Posted June 1, 2010 Report Share Posted June 1, 2010 In the most secluded part of the Vietnamese jungle, there had been for millennia practiced a religion known as "Si'ithis" to its followers and unbeknownst to the entire remainder of the country. However in recent years, with the expansion into the jungle of the Government via the Jungle Sight program, and the growing curiosity and fascination the Vietnamese people have had with the jungle, this religion, known as Sâu to the remainder of Vietnam, has become more known to the general public, especially in the south-central part of Vietnam, where the jungle is the thickest. Its ancient temple, deep within the jungle, has become a point of visitation for tourists, and those within have been uncharacteristically welcoming, if the old legends are to be believed. It was an ancient bedtime story that the 'Deep' would consume children if they did not go to sleep, and this 'Deep' was somewhere in the jungles of the West. Legends had grown into myths of the ancient temple, what was once the history of a people became the legend of the Sâu devolved into the myth of the Jungle and was forgotten almost entirely. The Si'ithis did not speak the common language, and thus were labeled as beasts of the unknown, the demons of the unknown, the place from which travelers never returned. The Sâu were the epitome of evil for children to fear, because parents incapable of sending their children to bed invented an invisible boogeyman, in the process demonizing an entire aspect of now-forgotten Vietnamese culture, an ancient religion that had once reigned supreme over the people of Indochina.

The Si'ithis have agreed to cooperate with the Government and it has allowed partial access to its archives, to selected parts of the Histories section. No one is sure of what will be discovered here, but eagerly the nation waits for news of the Sâu and this 'new' religion. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
