The Savage Tide
This glittering aerie is the last bastion of the ‘spirits’ that survived the destruction of Thanaclan. The Citadel is made of gleaming stone covered in an opalescent shimmer that is entirely unspoiled by the ravages of time. The Olman believe that the first ancestor spirits sleep here, awaiting the day the isle reverts to a paradise and their work is done.
Legends record that the courtyard contains nine stone archways and two pools—Truth(filled with blood) and Beauty(filled with crystal-clear water)—used to test souls.
The temple is built on an impossibly high terrace cut into the mountains on the isle’s western edge. It can sometimes be seen from the sea or the central plateau.
