Temple: Temple of the Mother
The temple is simple on the outside, made of bare stone.  When you enter the decoration inside is a much different scene.  Hundreds, if not thousands, of small artistic offerings line the walls and shine at the center of the main room.  Paintings, faded murals on the walls, small sculptures of stone, bone, wood, and many other materials can be seen.  Most have a theme geared toward life and nature.  One of the more popular items is a carved baby turtle.

There is a simple shrine as the center of the large room.  Dozens of worshipers sit on the floor around the shrine silently praying or meditating.  Every so often one of them gets up to leave, but soon another comes in to take their spot.  The back of the temple has several hallways that reach back into what is most likely living quarters for the priests here.

Somehow, word had reached the back of the Temple. It brought Emmett forward, walking softly on heavy boots. A thin sheen of sweat covered his forehead and his chest heaved as he struggled to control his breathing. "What can I do for you?"

"I am in need of healing, father. I was bitten by several rats, and I am afraid I might become sick if I do nothing. Can you help me ?"

"Without a doubt." The large human says calmly. He holds a reassuring hand out to one of the doorways at the back of the room. "Come this way, the infirmary is in the back." He says before turning and leading the way.

Emmett sits Aridon down on a cot and kneels in front of him, bringing the two to eye-level for the first time. He closes his eyes and opens his shirt to fully expose the tattoo on his chest. He begins chanting, holding his palms up to the ceiling as the swirl of divine magic flows around them. It all culminates in a wash of warmth over the gnome, like the summer breeze through a forest.

Cast: Cure Light Wounds, Heal 7 HP.

"Thank you father, I feel much better. Did you check to see if I might catch some disease ? Or can you make sure I won't ? I hear rat bites can be nasty that way."

OOC: Aridon failed two Fortitude saves, while fighting rats in a sewer. I'm a bit concerned about what that means...
Oh, and 7 hp is more than enough to put him back at full, so all good there.

The large man examines Aridon's wounds carefully, double checking a few places.  He makes a few "hmms" and "mmms" as he does so.  "I don't see signs of infection or disease.  Some diseases may take days or longer to manifest any symptoms or signs.  There is a woman, an expert in animals, that may know more if you wish to visit her as well.  She runs a business called Hoofers.  She's a half-elf named Tanda Brightflower.  Be well brother and may The Mother's love keep you safe on your travels."  Emmett looks toward the donation plate as he shows you out.

Aridon leaves a handful of gold in the collection plate, then leaves the temple and goes for a night's rest.

OOC: leave 10 gp.

Aldon walks into the temple, looking around for someone in charge. He is soon drawn to the artistic decorations, admiring their craftsmanship as he works his way toward the shrine in the center.
