Dark Waters of Freeport
Temple of War - Hextor
This Temple has closed after it’s leadership was exposed as an evil cult to the Demon Lord – Abaddon the Destroyer!
The Temple of the War God is simple and crude by the standards of the God of Knowledge. Squat, square, and built from wood culled from the jungle that once covered this part of A’Val, the exterior walls are dark with old blood from its more savage roots when adherents would perform blood sacrifices to their master in exchange for the fires of wrath to carry them unscathed through the worst battles. Those days, thankfully, are in the distant past, and the temple is more legitimate in its demands and practices. Most of the compound is an open training area covered in thick sand bearing suspicious stains. Palms grow on either side of the courtyard but are not there for decoration. They hold bundles of skulls tied with human hair to serve as grim reminders of what awaits those who fail. This area is where the war priests spend hours in training, honing their fighting skills, screams of pain and victory can be heard at any hour of the day or night.
Father Cadiccen came to the Temple of the God of War at just the right time. His predecessor had been poisoned, as had a number of key priests, leaving the temple on the brink of disaster. Cadiccen uncovered the conspiracy, personally beat the cultists to death with his bare hands, and hung their bloodied bodies from the front gates. He was the natural choice to succeed the high priest, and he stepped into the role perfectly.
