The Temple Of Taranis
It is on the Forum at the center of Ys.
Roman-built with colonnades but with an open courtyard as its temenos.
The south wing is used for worship.
Other wings hold offices, a hall, a kitchen for seasonal sacred banquets and the Speaker's conference room.
In the conference room, there are:
the Speaker's chair of state;
an inlaid Sun Wheel;
a gold-trimmed Hammer;
a mosaic of Taranis victorious over Tiamat;
a writing table;
We are bound to find this a curious mixture of the practical and the supernatural but no more so than if we visited a modern Cathedral.
