Baldur's Gate: Vice
The Unrolling Scroll - Temple of Oghma
The Unrolling Scroll
Oghma’s shrine, stands in stark contrast to the surrounding buildings ofyeLlow stone and slate roofs. Like the High House of Wonders and the Hall ofWonders, its pavilion is made of white marble, but its arched roof is a vibrant red outlined in gold leaf. A wide reflecting pool rests in a deep basin under its roof, and a podium for speeches projects slightly into the water. The shrine’s unusual construction efficiently projects the words of a person who speaks from the podium throughout the area.
Loremaster Most High Brevek Faenor, a man in his late forties, officially oversees the shrine. For some time now, he has been lax in his duties, allowing use of the shrine to secular performers and anyone who has news to spread. Oghma is the god of knowledge, inspration, and ideas, and the shrine was built to be a place to share such things. However, the loremaster has had his eye oii the High House of Wonders since he moved to Baldur’s Gate. Thwarted in his recent attempt to gain control of Gond’s temple, Faenor can now be found studying books in Gond’s library or near the Unrolling Scroll glumly listening to Baldurians complain about the shrine’s posted speaking schedule. Mean while, Faenor keeps his ear to the ground as he awaits another chance to gain the highest seat in the High House ofWonders.
