Swordspoint Shrine - dedicated to Tempus
This simple stone chapel stands always open to the street, and travelers of any faith are welcome to take shelter herein if the weather is inclement. Those who attempt to set up camp within the walls, however, are directed firmly to the south field. Swordpoint Shrine is staffed by priests, who can recount much of the war history of Battledale. If shown a map, they will readily point out battlefields and known ruins. They will display proudly the rusty shards of a blade said to have belonged to Aencar the Mantled King, as well as a plain dagger left behind in Essembra by Lashan, the self-styled Lord of the Dales, and several more dubious relics such as a blackened blade purportedly used by an elven warrior to slay a local red dragon several centuries ago.
The priests tend the sick and wounded for reasonable fees and also provide bed rest in the back room of the shrine. For tending the injured they ask a typical donation of 5 gp for an examination, the dressing and cleaning of wounds, the lancing of swellings, and the application of simple poultices and herbal medicines. Bed rest at the shrine costs an additional 1 gp per night, which includes bedpan and linen services plus simple fare of bread-and-milk puddings and watered wine.
