Shadowsquare is the second-largest temple in Kintargo, Cheliax, after the politically dominant Temple of Asmodeus. Devoted to Zon-Kuthon, it is located in the north-eastern part of the Temple Hill district.[1]

History

Shadowsquare was built atop the remains of a temple of Cayden Cailean that burned down during the early part of the Chelish Civil War.[1]

Appearance

The temple resembles a truncated pyramid, sloping toward the top in such a way that some part of it is always wrapped in shadows.[1]

Clergy and congregation

Despite its large size, the temple has a very small congregation and is unpopular in Kintargo. It exists solely to help cement political relations with neighbouring Nidal. Similarly, it boasts only a small contingent of priests led by High Priest Aluceda Zhol, and rumours around the city suggest that she is intimately involved with Kintargo's Asmodean High Priest Corinstian Grivenner. Her true dark secret, however, is that she is a vampire.[1]

Shadowsquare has to resort to selling magical healing and items to help with the meagre income from its parishioners, and is known to have a powerful scroll of restoration for sale.[1]
