Bahamut holy symbol

Symbol of the Platinum Dragon

The Platinum Sanctuary is the oldest temple to the god Bahamut, the Platinum Dragon.  It is one of the main temples in the ancient city of Vasselheim, located in the city's Silver Talon's Reach district.[1]

Description Edit

Exterior Edit

The Platinum Sanctuary is built into the side of the Heaven's Stair. It is a grand stone fortress that is described as looking "older than time itself." The fortress has been weathered significantly with time, to the point that the points and edges of the stonework were rounded and smoothed down. Along the outside, it could be seen that there were silver markings in a form of primitive Draconic that read platitudes such as "honor," and "justice."

Atop the Sanctuary, there were several spires that ascend from the fortress parallel to the mountainside made of ivory and silver. It was clear that these were later additions to the structure because they did not match the stonework of the original fortress.

The entrance to the fortress is guarded by the Scalebearers of Bahamut. The doors are very large stone doors with white marbling through them. The doors also had a barely-visible, worn away symbol of Bahamut emblazoned on them.[2]
