Headquarters to Izurdin's Hammer and the entry point into and out of Sultros City, Sultros Citadel is the farthest most outsiders will ever travel into the Isurian Kingdom. Heavily fortified and intimidating to view, the Citadel is the mirror of Isur strength, endurance and patience.

Izurdin's Shrine


Located just off the Hall of the Hammer is this relatively small shrine dedicated to Izurdin. While used primarily by members of Izurdin's Hammer, all isur within the citadel are welcome at the shrine. A sculpted stone entrance surrounds a beautiful door made of red crystal. When catching just the right light, the door shimmers with an otherworldly glow. Past the door, a large open hall surrounds a life-like statue of Izurdin. The god is stands upon a raised dais, an anvil in front of him. His arm is raised with a hammer in his hand. The statue is made of slightly blue tinted white stone with his left arm made of what looks to be some sort of crimson stone. The entire statue is laced with tiny veins of silver. At the base of the statue, in front of the dais, there is a small bench where isur leave various offerings to Izurdin. Small stacks of coins, expertly crafted tools, small weapons, carved gemstones, sculpted statues of gold and silver, all manner of offering may be found. These offerings are gathered at the end of each week and go to support Izurdin's Forge, the Temple of Izurdin in Sultros City.

There are no pews as may be found in some human religious constructs for isur stand during religious ceremonies. The inner walls of the shrine are covered with tapestries depicting heroic deeds performed by isur ages ago; symbols of the greatness of the isur and reminders that isur are capable of truly epic accomplishments.

There is another doorway at the back of the hall that leads to the priest's quarters and personal forge, shrine storage and favored acolytes chambers.
