You entered the hallway of one of the larger temples of the Order of the Golden Feather. As you walk towards the centre of the hallway you notice a lot of people coming by. Followers of all kind walk passed you as they continue to the inner temple or leave from it. You also notice some priests and temple guards who try to guide the people around.
You look around and you see several doors leading away from the central hallway. To the right you notice a big wooden door that stands wide open. From the number of people walking through that door you think there must be the inner temple.
To be sure you walk up to one of the guards to ask directions. The guard smiles at you and tells you with a big smile where all the doors lead.
The guard tells you that the large door you saw before is indeed the entrance to the Inner Temple. He tells you that there the worshippers of the Golden Dragon gather to pray and to honour the Heroes of the Golden Dragon. He also tells you that in the Inner Temple the priests of the Order of the Golden Feather tell tales about the Golden Dragon and share there knowledge about the Heroes of the Golden Dragon.
You look at a door small and only used by the full members of the Order of the Golden Feather. As you look for a while you notice that mostly the novices use the door and an occasional priest. You ask the guard where the door leads and he tells you that the door leads to the Library of the temple. He tells you that in the library the stories of the Order of the Golden Feather are kept, all the myths, tales and history. He also admits that it has been a long time since he has been in the library, as the last time it was as he was a novice. Most novices read a lot of books in the library, even those for the path of the guards.
As you look around you also see that the novices use an other door a lot. The guards sees you looking to the door and he smiles. That, he tells you, is the door to the novice cells. All the young new members of the faith spend there first years studying and have a bed in the novice cells. Besides the sleeping cells of the novices there are also classes and priests who teach the basics of the Order of the Golden Feather. The guard tells you that if you want to become a full member you better take some classes in the novice cells. The priests there will help you become a full member.
You see a door with a large owl carved into the wood. You see a few full members, mostly priests, use the door. The guard tells you that the door leads to the Owls’ Tower. A place used by the path of the word, a path mostly used by the priests of the Order of the Golden Feather. They are the bringers of the word. They preach and research into the past of the Order of the Golden Feather.
You notice a door next to the door to the Owls’ Tower. A large Hawk is carved into this door. The guard tells you that that door leads to the Hawks’ Circle, a place where the templars of the Hawk train. The templars of the Hawk are the fighters of the Order of the Golden Feather. They are the frontline soldiers and attack the evil faiths known to the Order of the Golden Feather.
Next to the door of the Hawks’ Circle you see a door with a large Eagle carved into the door. The guards tells you that the Eagles’ Nest is located behind that door. A place where the Guards of the Order of the Golden Feather train and sleep. He smiles as he tells you about the Eagles Nest. He also sais that he, as guard of the Order of the Golden Feather, he also trains and sleeps in that place.
Next to the door to the Eagles’ Nest you see a door, darker then the other three, with an raven carved in the wood. The guard shivers a little as you ask about that door. He tells you that there the Ravens’ Tree is located. The members there are the guides of the dead. They help the pieces of the Golden Dragon to return to him after people die. Most normal members are a little uncomfortable in there presence.
In the hallway you also see a stair going up. You look at it and ask the guard where it leads, as you see two other guards defend the stair. The guards tells you that the stairs lead to the quarters of the Elders. Mostly the quarters are used by the high priest of the temple. He can also help you explain the jobs of all the Elders of the Order of the Golden Feather. The guard tells you also that the guards in front of stair only let you pass when you are a full member.
