The Shackled City
Cathedral of Feathers
This ruined stone structure, once part of Celestia, now rests in the center of the largest mass of Celestial rubble in Occipitus. According to Kaurophon, the demon prince Adimarchus (the layer’s former ruler) installed the first part of the Test of the Smoking Eye beneath the cathedral.
While within the cathedral, one might experience what is known as a “celestial flashback.” During one of these brief moments, the Cathedral of Feathers seems to revert to its former holy glory. All walls become undamaged, and no rubble litters the floor. The furniture is magically whole, candles glow in wall sconces, and the air is filled with gentle breezes heavy with incense. The tilt of the floor disappears, and anyone who looks out the doors or windows sees verdant alpine meadows and golden sunlight rather than the rubble-strewn landscape and red-tinged light of Occipitus.
