Major and Great Temples to Orlanth in Sartar?


Recommended Posts

Where are the Major and Great Temples to Orlanth in Sartar? The RQG book lists the Clearwine temple as a Major one. Would all the tribal capitals have Major Temples? Would all the cities have Great Temples? What size would the temples at the holy sites be (Kero Fin, Old Wind, Hill of Orlanth Victorious, etc.)?

RQG p.284: pretty much by definition, Major Temples exist at the Tribal level. Great Temples in the confederated cities of Sartar, but they’re more likely to be buildings - tribes, esp. out in the boonies, will use sacred hills w/o so much infrastructure IMG. (That is, the “Temple” is the sacred place at which the tribe assembles with all its ritual clobber). My short thematic article on top-down Lunar suppression of Orlanthi worship kinda relates, qv.

Correct, in Sartar, each tribe has a Major temple to Orlanth. The cities with Great Temples are Boldhome, Jonstown, Swenstown, Wilmskirk, Alone and Alda-Chur (currently suppressed). There are also several sacred hills with Great Temples - Hill of Orlanth Victorious and Orlanth's Hill - also serve as great temples. Sacred Top is part of the great temple associated with Boldhome and the Sartar dynasty.
