The Godless either disagree with relying on the gods and Charmphone powers, or else, in certain sects, disbelieve that they exist at all, despite the evidence.
They often form small villages, and are hostile to outsiders. Occasionally, travellers on the road are attacked by Godless, as they live a difficult-to-sustain way of life, eschewing Charmphones and the industry powered by them. Most piracy by airship is perpetrated by Godless communities who dare to still use Ether.
Using (or even posessing) a Charmphone amidst a Godless community is almost always considered a crime by their standards, and depending on the particular dogma of the sect, could warrant punishment from as little as confiscation or destruction of the device, to as much as the death sentence.
