The Ontiba is the holy text for the known universe of Omneutta. The book is split into eight sections, with each section covering the legends of a specific deity. The first section describes the creation of the universe and Aster, while each subsequent section covers another deity. Each section is broken up into several chapters, with chapters covering the lives of non-Deities sometimes called books. Many denominations debate as to which ‘mortal’ books should be included and in what order, so referring to them by name is usually preferred, as repeated below.

Citation

To reference stories or passages from the Ontiba, one must quote the section, then the chapter, and finally the line number or numbers you wish to reference. Citation of the Ontiba can be at times tricky, due to the disputes over which chapters of the later sections should be included. For the sections after section one, replacing the chapter number with the name is sometimes preferable.

Section One

Main Article: Ontiba 1:2

The first section of the Ontiba is broken up into two chapters, and does not have any formal nomenclature. To cite from either of the first two chapters, you can either use the monkier ‘Aster‘ or reference ‘Ontiba’ as a whole. Unlike the other seven sections, Section One contains only two chapters, and focuses mainly on a single narrative.

Section Two

Main Article: Ontiba 2:1-3

The second section of the Ontiba has three chapters, and is also called The Rux. There are two other chapters aside from the first devoted to Extiru, one each for Suugch and Bauz, two of the first Xiruen said to have ascended to immortality and given titles in Xiruen Culture.
