The Anzar Sect is a group that view prayer as a path to personal gain. They say the Higher Power desire for mortal worshipers, and thus more Divine Power, is a path to personal gain for the worshiped. Heretical thinking in most religions, this 'equitable devotion' principle was rooted when Thyrm hinted that it is of little importance how you get believers - devotion or gold, the result is the same.

The core belief of this organization can be summed up as if Thyrm helps us, then we will worship him. This belief was heretical at the time the group was founded. This changed when the group's founder, a frost giant shaman named Anzar, showed Glangveif's king and lackeys the true power of her small group of fifty adepts. This show of power was the opening of the Fjorstaki Rift.

The beginning of this group began with Anzar. In 609 HE, she was a charismatic site manager for gold mining operations going on in upper Ugradrath. She was worshipper of Thyrm, but not a devoted one. Anzar had a lot of people under her, and it said her oratory skills were such that they listened to her. Agents of Thyrm, seeking candidates to spread his worship and thereby gain more divine power, sought her out. They quickly figured out what made her tick - wealth, nationalist sentiment, devotion to Thyrm. Yearning for more followers, Thyrm saw a way of getting more followers through Anzar while enriching her pockets. He guided Anzar to a weak spot in the Web of Magic, one that when split would tap into a part of Gjalvar Kjoll that had millions of tons of Fimbulwinter Gold. This gold made the empire she served rich, and more importantly, made the Anzar Sect an accepted route of prayer that still exists today in areas across northern Brucrumus.
