Martin Luther's Reformation - October 31
Hello Atlantica Players,
Today is the last day of October.
The topic of the day is the Protestant Reformation.
A German religious reformer named Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the door of the Schlosskirche in Wittenberg on the 31st of October, 1517, sparking the Reformation.
During this period, Roman Catholic theology stated that faith alone could not absolve man of sin, and that charity and good works were necessary for salvation. The benefits of good works could be obtained by donating money to the church.
With his theses, he protested the sale of indulgences. He asked, "Why does the pope, whose wealth today is greater than the wealth of the richest Crassus, build the basilica of St. Peter with the money of poor believers rather than with his own money?"

Did you know?MimirNPC - Mimir
Mímir (Old Norse "The rememberer, the wise one") or Mim is a figure in Norse mythology renowned for his knowledge and wisdom who is beheaded during the Æsir-Vanir War. Afterward, the major god Odin carries around Mímir's head and it recites secret knowledge and council to him.

Mímir is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson, and in euhemerized form as one of the Æsir in Heimskringla, also written by Snorri Sturluson in the 13th century. Mímir is the namesake of three Mímir's Well, Mímameiðr (Old Norse "Mími's tree"), and Hoddmímis holt.
