“I was hoping for something a bit more, I don’t know. Intimidating.”
“Intimidating, sir?” The architect schooled his features. This wasn’t his first demanding client. “What did you have in mind?”
“Something to remind the worshipers of their place in this mortal realm. To make them sufficiently pious and dutiful.”
The architect sighed and brought out his other plans.
“That’s perfect!”
Thus the Shrine of Everlasting Grace got its nickname: Skull Temple.
