Church of Asmodeus
Kintargo’s church of Asmodeus has long played a background role in the city, never far from the minds of its citizens, yet rarely intervening in local politics. With martial law imposed, those days are over, and today, high priest Corinstian Grivenner works hand in hand with Barzillai Thrune to aid in keeping the “peace” in the city.
The Temple of Asmodeus in Kintargo, as with many other such temples throughout Cheliax, occupies a grand structure once devoted to Aroden. Today, the large central dome and facades of this structure have been reinforced with iron and magically transformed to be adorned with images of devils and Hell itself. Much of the upper floors are open to the public, but High Priest Corinstian Grivenner and his minions are swift to prevent access to the temple’s inner sanctum or the mysterious chambers below. A belfry atop the central dome rings out apparently at random, though none in Kintargo claim to know who or what rings the so-called Devil’s Bells, as access to the belfry without teleportation or flight seems difficult at best. There are those who believe that the bells ring according to some complex pattern or code, and that those who could break the code would learn a terrible secret, but to date the timing of the Devil’s Bells have proven frustratingly difficult to interpret. Spellcasting is available to paying customers at a 10% discount from prices offered by other churches in the city, but the temple does not do much trade in magic items.
