Canyon Temple

A great advantage of polytheistic cultures is the all the wonderful and varied temples that are built. Every god needs a home and it needs to be one that truly honors the god. Here is one of the many drawings of temples you’ll find in Gnemo’s sketchbook. Not that it’s important to appreciate the art but these people are actually metaphorical polytheists. I felt the need to be specific because it does make a difference in the story if not the art.

One thing I wonder though, with all the work they did on the temple, why did they built a flimsy rope bridge instead of a stone one? Perhaps constructing a loose and swaying bridge over a perilously high cavern to reach the temple emphasizes the firm power of the god within. I should post the interior next.
