Influism, or more commonly known as the New Way, is a new philosophy that was born in the wake of the Curella epidemic and the Turmocet incident. Mostly based from an independently published manuscript, A Revelation of Influism, by Aethenatos, it is quickly gaining popularity, threatening to become the prevailing philosophy in the setting of post-apocalyptic Galwyndor, especially those in remoter regions such as The Verges. The philosophy espouses a belief system that attempts to restore power to the individual through autonomy. The primary focus of the book is on highlighting key strategies leaders and factions use to keep power for themselves.
- Rule only exists insofar as a body can enforce it.
- Man's nobility and right are a corollary of his ability and merit.
