The Temple Of Lies
Since its founding, the Temple of Lies serves as a repository of truths, a site for supplicants seeking favour from the God of Change and Master of Sorcery, and a bastion for those in search
of knowledge beyond mundane grasp. The land encompassing the base of the Temple embraces its sacred sights: the warped metal holds of the destroyed Light of Ascension scattered across miles of foothills and the preserved remains of the unfortunate crew, both of which serve as shrines and occasional living quarters for temple functionaries. Built upon the largest portion of the wreckage are the main halls of the temple itself, a structure of twisting metal encircled by Screamer-drawn chariots.
Within, vast stores of knowledge fill shelf after shelf in cold, voluminous chambers, lightly populated with studious devotees and servitor caretakers. Tomes and data slates on various and sundry topics enlighten scholars within the labyrinthine tower, organised in such an unintelligible way that it requires an experienced guide to find anything. Of note is the Akrinus Chamber, named for the founder of the temple itself, where the most valuable texts are stored. Among them are tomes of stories, few with any reference to historical context, that are thought to have prophetic value and are only ever examined by special guests and the temple’s masters. As a rule, the higher a chamber is positioned within the temple, the more important the content hoarded therein and therefore the more tightly it is secured. Beyond the lowest sections of the Temple, special permissions must be granted for explorers to gain access to the vast stores of information.
With the death of Renkard Copax by The Death Dealears, Elika The Seer has taken over duties as the Mendacious Oracle.
