Shrine of Delroth

Shrine of Delroth
Image
For a long time, the little shrine just outside of Scalvoris Town had been in a state of disrepair. The paint on the walls had been coming off, the windows had been missing, there had been holes in the roof, and what more, rats had done their business in the shrine. People – and there were a lot of people in the area as it got a lot of foot traffic – had wrinkled their nose when they had looked at it and remarked that the Council should remove that terrible eyesore.

In late 718, the shrine had received a new priest though, and things had continuously gotten better. Said priest, one Devin Thorn who was also a skilled bard and doctor, had hired people to repair the roof, paint the walls and get rid of the vermin, and he had even travelled all the way to Desnind in order find treasure to decorate the shrine with for it was a shrine that was dedicated to Delroth, the Immortal of Greed.

The shrine that is the size of a garden shed looks quite nice now. No, it looks more than just nice – it is beautiful, as a shrine that is dedicated to a being that is as vain as Delroth should be, with white walls that have red and golden ornaments . The centerpiece of the shrine is the altar that has been placed in front of the back wall, of course. Behind the altar is the most amazing painting of Delroth that nearly makes the Immortal look alive. Against the left wall stand three sculptures of birds that Devin found in a ruin in the jungle once upon a time, and a beautiful tapestry hangs on the right wall.

It depicts an exotic landscape that has – surprise – more birds in it.

Furthermore, the shrine contains a couple of benches – painted in a nice bright golden color that hopefully suits Delroth’s tastes – where worshippers can sit down in order to pray.

Masses are regularly held at the shrine – and sometimes, when a lot of worshippers come, outside of it. They aren’t like normal masses though. People dress beautifully because anything else might provoke Delroth's anger, and there is real music rather than a couple of people that are singing off-key or pretending to sing because they don’t really know the words.

Notes

This shrine is operated by my PC Devin and was acquired by him IC.

Jobs (as an acolyte, for example) are available here!
