Avenue of the Hopeful

From PathfinderWiki
A noble walks down the Avenue of the Hopeful.

The Avenue of the Hopeful is a winding street in Absalom's Ascendant Court and a busy market catering to those fascinated by the Test of the Starstone: hopefuls, followers, worshippers, and the merchants, pickpockets, and charlatans who hope to make money from them.[1] Some of the sincere hopefuls have lived on the street for years, while others are merely confidence men.[1] Merchants offer holy symbols, holy water, and relics, as well as "faith papers", which indicate the popularity of a hopeful deity.[1] The booth of the Masked God of Secrets, a presumed hopeful, is a front for an organization that collects and sells secrets.[1]
