Overview

Rang is a huge kingdom, covering more than a million square miles, and extending from the Great Sea to the Ice Sea. It dominates the area politically, militarily and religiously. Rang is a monarchy, led by King Diure LXIV, but its immense size weakens the central government. Most feudal lords manage their lands independently, and only answer to the king in the loosest sense. The king does have several pockets of power, such as in Huerten, which allow him to maintai…

Exterior Description

Before they left, Kreemon got a good look at the small temple. It was no larger than the surrounding houses, and probably had been a house in the past. There was one door, on the side, and two shuttered windows, one on each side. Everything within reach had been repeatedly vandalized. There was garbage around the temple, some of which had been swept into neat piles. The walls were scored with scratched-in curses, and patches of recently sanded wood were scattered at random. Kreemon tried to get a look inside, but the door was locked and barred.135plugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_big Appeared or occurred in:

After Forgolon left, Ziedon called Tah'iera to him. Within moments, the strange bird landed on the window sill. “Please follow the man who just left,” Ziedon said. “Let me know where he goes.”

After Tah'iera flew off, Ziedon said, “Korisca, Kreemon. I don't know how long this transition period is going to take. I would very much like to get my necklace back from

The Escape Tunnel

The wall behind the fireplace in the sanctuary is false. It can be slid aside to reveal a tiny room. That room opens into a narrow tunnel which ends at a fake stump outside of Maelbourgplugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_big Maelbourg

Turn 158: The Andrithan Townsman

Before bed, Halaren had some chores. He walked from the temple to the garden nearby, his wooden bucket in hand. From it, he produced a carrot wrapped in a greasy cloth from the kitchen. He rubbed it in the soil as he prayed for the Mother to look after her children, then buried it in the ground.

The Sanctuary

There are several pews, and a side table where candles and wish scrolls are burned. The altar is comprised of three moveable pieces of painted wood – a central surface with central support, with four-foot tall spires on either side. The table portion is less than one by two feet, and a runner drapes over the front and back to display an embroidered symbol of Andrithaplugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_big Andrithanism

The Priest's Office

The small den has just enough space in its five by seven feet for a long, shallow writing desk and chair down one side, a hinged cot folded up against the wall on the other. Two shelves wrap around most of the room at eye level. Though there is plenty of room for books, the supply is meager. Maybe two-score of old books with worn bindings and cracked spines comprise the collection, with another dozen stacked on the desk and several rolls of unbound pages. On the shelves aremostly religious texts, parables, song books and the like. One collection of papers is actually a recent journal of political activities within the city, ending a half year ago.
