** Inrithi: A hybrid polytheistic/monotheistic religion with an overarching "church" and leader akin to Catholicism. The Shriah is the Pope.
** Fanim: Arab Muslims. Their fashion, weaponry and symbols are all Arab, and their staunch monotheism in comparison to the slightly more polytheistic aspects of Inrithism is reminiscent of Islam versus Catholicism's Holy Trinity and abundance of saints. The Padirajah is the Sultan/Caliph.

The first series, ''The Prince of Nothing'', tells the tale of a son searching for his father during a Holy War, in a medieval world where FunctionalMagic exists and an obscure AncientConspiracy, ShroudedInMyth, is plotting TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. The characters who are embroiled in this conflict include a tired BadassBookworm sorcerer, a cunning [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold whore]], and a mentally unstable barbarian chieftain. But in the midst of the Holy War arrives a wandering monk, Anasûrimbor Kellhus. He is the scion of an isolated sect who have spent millennia making themselves into beings of pure logic.

Leaving his sect for the first time, Kellhus is completely ignorant about the outside world. At the same time, his astounding mental and physical abilities, untainted by emotion or morality, are like nothing the world has ever seen. Will Kellhus find his father, and what will he impact along the way?

* {{Homage}} There are a few references to TheBible:
** The size of the Inchoroi's Ark is measured in cubits, just like Noah's Ark.
** The Inchoroi want to reduce the world to fewer than 144,000 souls. This is an ArcNumber in the Bible, always representing a group of people.

** There are also quite a few references to Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium:
*** As mentioned under OurOrcsAreDifferent, the Inchoroi genetically engineered the Sranc to have Nonman faces, just like Melkor created the Orcs as cruel parodies of the Elves.
*** The journey through the Black Halls of Cil-Aujas in ''The Judging Eye'' is an obvious homage to the Mines of Moria.
*** In ''The White-Luck Warrior'', Achamian and Cleric's confrontation with [[spoiler:Wutteät, the Father of Dragons,]] resembles a certain key scene in TheHobbit.
