War of the Burning Sky
Temple to the Goddess of Hearth and Home
Simply constructed, this building is a favorite meeting place of the farmers and ranchers of the outlying area. The city council almost always bows to the wisdom of the temple elders, especially after the food riots of twenty years ago, when a gate tax was imposed on all people and animals (even dead ones) entering the city. The farmers revolted and stopped delivering goods and supplies. A week later, the situation within Gate Pass was so desperate that the townsfolk rushed the council and deposed them. The tax was instantly repealed. Since then, a temple elder has always been assigned to the council to represent the population outside the walls.
