Temple Hill

Vorhal_Temple_Hill.jpg

Built in the foothills overlooking The City of Vorhal, the cathedrals, churches, shrines and temples that make up the district of Temple Hill draw followers of all faiths to attend services, engage in prayer or ask for the blessings of the pantheons. Originally founded as a temple to Helm, the deity to which Selena Vor pledged herself, the region quickly attracted the shrines of other gods and was soon turned into a holy sanctuary. The temple to Helm was rebuilt a number of times throughout the centuries, but in the 400’s BQ’A, the temple underwent a massive reconstruction that resulted in it towering over every other structure in the district. Even though various religions oppose one another, sometimes even to the point of hostilities, Temple Hill for the most part is respected as neutral territory. The worshipers who practice there may glare at one another in passing, but know better than to cause any undue trouble on sacred ground.

Businesses

With the constant flow of parishioners to and from the churches and cathedrals, the businesses in Temple Hill tend to stock mostly items of religions significance or wares useful to the clergy. The shops here offer a variety of goods and services, but seem to lend themselves more so to the interests of the Clerics and Paladins of various faiths. Businesses in Temple Hill don’t see many guards patrolling their streets, but nonetheless have few issues with theft or vandalism. As many of the priests and worshipers here don’t hesitate to spend their fair share of coin, the shops are able to afford purchasing a few hundred gold worth of wares each month.

Organizations

Graced by cathedral, churches and temples of all sorts, Temple Hill is home to organizations of almost every religion, both great and small. While there exists religious tension between some institutions, most are able to keep their differing views in check while on the holy ground of the Hill. The temples of some faiths are more widely represented on the Hill than others, and their sacred sites are better known and tend to more obviously dominate the landscape. The less elaborate churches of other deities crowd the blocks between the towering temples, and the small shrines of the remaining divinities pop up wherever they can find room. Those who spend substantial time in Temple Hill have even heard rumors of shrines to darker gods hidden in derelict alleyways, abandoned buildings and underground caverns.
