Most Erfworlders believe in the Titans as Erf's creators or demiurges. Their divine will is used by Ansom, seeking to justify the traditional ruling systems of Erf, and by Stanley, who claims that the Titans have special plans for him that supersede the "mandate" of the royals, as evidenced by his attunement to the Arkenhammer. Images of the Titans are featured in the architecture of many cities; similarly, it would appear that some of the books popped along with cities make mention of the Titans.Erf-b1-p068
Some Erfworlders believe in an a City of Heroes, afterlife in which heroic deeds in combat are especially rewarded.

A unit's religious beliefs are present when it is popped, though it may become more or less faithful depending on its experience.
Religious debates in Erfworld seem to take the form of the specific "plans" the Titans may have had for Erf and themselves: in other words, Fate. Indeed, talking about fate and destiny is likened to quoting scripture.
