The Maddening Roar
Cult of Belashyrra
This Cult of the Dragon Below worships the daelkyr entity known as Belashyrra, or the Lord of Eyes. The cell that the party uncovered was led by Brynn Attul, a priest of the Cathedral of the Cleansing Light, the largest and most prestigious Church of the Silver Flame in Sharn. Several other members of the Cathedral of the Cleansing Flame were also members of this cult, including Silas Hiram and Willam Loren, although a majority of the cell’s members did not appear to have a direct affiliation with the Church of the Silver Flame.
The Cult of Belashyrra met regularly in a dungeon beneath a mausoleum in the Dragon Crypts, one of the main cemeteries on the outskirts of Sharn. There, the cult summoned an aspect of Belashyrra to gain the daelkyr’s power and wisdom, as well as to receive directions as to how to free their master from his magical prison.
The party discovered this cult while searching for the missing acolyte Willam Loren, and it was revealed that Willam’s disappearance frightened the cult. As a member of the cult himself, Willam’s disappearance threatened the secrecy of the cult if he was kidnapped and his secrets were revealed. The party believes that they have killed all members of this particular cell, although an Object Reading ritual cast upon Brynn Attul’s cult necklace revealed that Vestan ir’Simul is likely a high-ranking member with the Cult. In addition, the ritual revealed the presence of several additional cult members whom the party did not recognize. Finally, the ritual indicated that Belashyrra was using the cult to obtain a set of objects called the Seven Rubicons, which had been used to form Belashyrra’s prison and could therefore be used to free him.
