The Jawa Industrial Magi are a collection of traditional Jawa religious sects which follow the "Great Tinkerer" or some other name for what can be interpreted as a god of knowledge and construction. Individual Magi and Magi sects typically focus on some specific aspect of this god.

Religious Beliefs

Divine Knowledge

The Jawa Industrial Magi is based around the idea of divine knowledge, knowledge of the world, gods, and the future. Followers are urged to amass divine knowledge, with it being seen as what primarily separates Jawa from god, creation from creator. Additionally, it is believed that this knowledge cannot get into the wrong hands, making "forbidden knowledge" and secrecy a key focus of many Magi.


A key principle of the Magi religion is the Jawa shamans. Shamans always possess some gift from the divine, which typically consists of divine knowledge granted to them by the Great Tinkerer but there have been other gifts such as healing or other magical powers. This divine knowledge is not random, but rather personally chosen for a shaman based on the needs of the shaman's followers by the Great Tinkerer. This knowledge would then let the Shaman lead the clan through whatever troubles they were facing. This divine knowledge had great amounts of variance, and it can consist of anything from tips for farming to how to prophecies of the future to how to assist in a battle between the gods.

While shamans were given pure and accurate divine knowledge, most sects recognize that the shamans interpretations and explanations of the knowledge are not as true as the original divine knowledge. This has led to a significant amounts of study not just in various utterances of shamans but also the current condition and history of their clan, in order to gain deeper insight into whatever divine knowledge was given to the shaman. Additionally, it is believed that through study of the world divine knowledge can be found, with knowledge of the gods being able to be gained through the study of their creation. Due to all shamans being female and an incredibly small number of Jawas being selected by the Great Tinkerer to be shamans many religious Jawas turn to study of past shamans and the world in order to try to gain access to undiscovered divine knowledge.


The beliefs of the Magi are rooted primarily in the teachings done by Jawa shamans throughout history. These shamans, believed to have been given knowledge by a divine being, often in the form of a vision or dream which they then translated into a principle of Jawa faith. However, due to questions of validity of many shamans supposed divine revelation and frequent contradictions of different shamans individual sects will often painstakingly sort through shamans of history and their teachings in order to compile collections of teachings to distribute. Considering that there have been tens of thousands of Jawa shamans in recorded history, some of which uttered hundreds of supposedly divinely inspired statements, this is an often monumental task. This differing of exact scriptures between sects has led to a large amount of variance in beliefs.


Most sects believe in Polytheism, with there being many other gods besides the Great Tinkerer, most of which seeking to destroy and corrupt the universe. However, their is a large amount of disagreement on exactly which gods there are beyond the Great Tinkerer. It is largely believed that there is an ongoing battle between the gods which is being fought in the spirit realm and the universe which the Magi are taking part in.


Rituals are a key part of the religious practice of almost all Magi sects. Common rituals include the blessing of mechanical creations, the use of sigils, and chants. These sigils, chants, and blessings often vary greatly between sects. Notably, in studies done it appears that Jawa societies that had frequent blessings of their droids and sigils of performance had significantly better functioning droids.


Born out of the traditional clan structures of the Jawa race, the Magi are based in a number of different sects consisting of anywhere between 12 and 1,000 Magi. Sects typically focus on one specific thing and follow scriptures that reflect this. Additionally, while not a requirement for the smaller sects, most sects have a head shaman. Furthermore, most sects are made up of smaller, more specific sects.
