For the Glory of the Black Dragon
- The Great Cathedral of Chardun
This massive, multi-spired cathedral speaks to both the glory and might of Chardun and the advanced skills of Calastian architecture and engineering. Located on the peninsula of land where the waters of the Eni river surge into Lake Vashon, the towering, dark cathedral casts a looming shadow over these waters and signals to all beyond that this city belongs to the Overlord.
Great spires, arched buttresses, massive leaded glass windows and over 100 bells assuring that anyone within miles of the city know when the hour of service or veneration tolls.
Countless slaves can be seen attending to the cathedral’s upkeep, sweeping streets, scouring stone facades or statues or flogging themselves in penance on the main boulevard in front of the temple.
Criminals of many ilk, from debtors to murderers have been known to hang from the mighty towers, crying in distress and pain or having their carcasses eaten by carrion crows and ravens.
The Cathedral is the center of Charduni worship in Calastia and houses living quarters and offices for the Arch Dominion of the Duchy of Arminoff and the Lord Dominion of Chardun and his ecclesiastic retinue. The current Lord Dominion, Alvesis Kolf, lords over the clergy beneath him from this lofty perch; from here he gives summons to any underling priests and indeed to any in the land of Calastia, for few short of the king would ignore the Lord Fiend’s calling.
