This lodge is in the city of Almas, the capital of Andoran. As its name shows, it was once a cathedral dedicated to the now lost god Aroden. However, a scandal bankrupted the local church, and pathfinder Brackett was able to buy the large three-storey building at a very cheap price. He became its venture-captain, a post he still holds.
Its great size makes it the logical place to hold large scale gatherings of pathfinders, and its dozens of guest rooms rank among the finest lodgings in Almas. Its library is second only to the Grand Lodge in Absalom, and is also renowned for its assistant librarians – homunculi created by the head librarian Wystron Telfyr in his laboratory in one of the cathedral’s towers. The creatures are so popular that some pathfinders employ Wystron to create homunculus pets for them.
The other tower has been taken over by Wystron’s apprentice, Greudemoffit, who has converted it into a metrological station and is attempting to predict the weather.
The vault beneath the cathedral holds the lodge’s most valuable items, and there are also secret passages that connect the cathedral to various city sites.
The cathedral’s bells are still operational, and Brackett uses them to send coded messages to his agents in the city.
