Not all pass the Test of the Starstone as Iomedae did.

The Shrine of the Failed is a hall of monuments in Absalom's Ascendant Court to those who have failed the Test of the Starstone.[1]

History

It was founded centuries ago, and routinely expanded since by the families of the fallen and other residents of Absalom.[1]

Structure

The shrine consists of a series of stone rooms holding shrines that are as elaborate as the caretakers can manage, but are usually no more than a few personal items of the deceased.[1]

Inhabitants

The shrine's caretakers wear black mourning robes, but claim no divine calling, holy texts, or philosophy.[1] Most visitors view it as a novelty and leave quickly, but there are occasionally devout worshippers who believe that one of the failed is a god who is merely quiescent.[1]

Enshrined failures

There are many failed memorialized at the shrine. The most notable include:

Cults of the failed

See also: Cults of the Failed

Some of the failed gods nevertheless gain followers; indeed, some gain genuine followers, but many 'cults' are actually tricksters out to fool the gullible.[3]
