Of Swords & Crowns
At first glance, this district appears to be an upper-class residential neighborhood. Many of the towering temples are built of stone, adorned with monolithic pillars and graven images. The surrounding homes and shops belie this first impression, though, since these are rarely fancy or particularly clean. The truly powerful usually have their own priests on staff, and many districts have their own shrines, but the temple district is where most citizens come to pray. People on these streets come from all walks of life, and they are usually dressed in their best (or at least cleanest) clothes. Incense and the sounds of bells and chanting fill the air, and funeral or celebratory processions are common.
