Dark Temple of Asiel's Fist
This bronze-lined underground temple was built some time around the year 610 on the site where the master poisoner Asiel, Chosen of Vautha, was sought out and slain by the great dragon Hispion. A ring was found on his right hand, miraculously unharmed by the flames, and declared a relic.
The faithful of Vautha come here to view that ring, Asiel’s Fist, and to sacrifice wine and serpents for Vautha’s blessing, but the priests and well-armed guards seem more concerned with ensuring that the ring never leaves the temple than with any ceremonial duties.
While this temple is dedicated to Vautha and always has a Vauthan high priest, it is also traditional for Anonc, Fryssa, and Tasok to each have a priest stationed in the Dark Temple and it contains smaller shrines to each of those deities.
