Of Kings and Dragons
The town of Hellirinn is built near a cave that contains an ancient shrine to Pharasma. Many of the villagers are Pharasmin devotees, and the village carries an introspective and solemn air. The nature of Hagreach doesn’t allow for much variation of tradition, and protecting itself is still the first order of business.
The Pharasmin shrine itself consists of little more than a warm spring in the rocky floor of the cave, and it is said that any child delivered in the water of the spring will grow up with Pharasma’s blessing. It is true that many of the villagers of Hellirinn have strange gifts—many of which lead the villagers to embrace lives as oracles. Expectant mothers often make a pilgrimage to Hellirinn every year, risking travel and the frequent attacks while en route to birth their children in the shrine’s warm waters.
