In the northwestern corner of the Temple Ward, bordering against the Wall of Revered Ancestors, sits one of the most mysterious structures in the Great City, a monstrous dome of pure mica-schist isinglass known as the Temple of the Silver Lady.
The Temple of the Silver Lady is the epicenter of the Great City's oldest and possibly least understood religion. The original temple predates the other structures of the Temple district by at least a century, and may even predate the city itself. The earliest record of the religion describes a sacred meadow marked by eight menhirs centered round a huge geode which reflected moonlight so brightly, that it appeared the night stars had fallen from the sky to dance amongst the mortal worshippers.
Later records describe the addition of a small marble temple and a life-size stone effigy of the Silver Lady. About this same time, a renaissance of industry and commerce gave rise to the sectioning of the Great City, forcing many other religions to relocate near the Temple of the Silver Lady, creating the foundation for the Temple district, as well as dozens of other districts around the country . . .

Welcome to Blueprints Backdrops!
This set of products is based on 0one's popular Blueprints. In Blueprints Backdrops, you will find a fully developed version of one of the locations from the Blueprints line. The Backdrop features a complete description of the location and its NPCs and monsters (if any), penned by one of our talented writers and portrayed by skillful artists. You also get a simpler version of the map found in Blueprints and a complete detailed 3D map of the location. The 3D view will help you to visualize the area and better describe it to your players. You can even show it to them, if you wish. The product is suitable for use with any fantasy RPG system. We have separated the d20 stats from the main text, allowing you to print out either a generic description or a fully d20-statted version.
But the good stuff is just beginning.
This product takes full advantage of PDF technology, joining old-fashioned style with the most advanced electronic features.
Using the exclusive "Rule the Dungeon" feature (look for a big, blue-n-white button - don't worry, it won't print) you will be able to fully customize this product. The 3D map can be changed to show only one floor (for example), with or without walls (for another), with or without furniture, only an external view, and on and on, with many combinations possible!
This product has also been designed to help busy referees prepare adventures - or even single encounters. Instead of spending extra time scaling the encounters to your party, the d20 stats are scaled in three different versions suitable for low, mid, and high levels of play, using a "Rule the Dungeon" button.
This button lets you choose which level to play, and all the relevant text will change accordingly: monsters will scale, DCs and traps will change, behaviors of the villains will change, all according to the level of play you choose.
Note: The original map of the Temple of the Silver Lady appears in 0one's Blueprints: The Great City, Temple Ward.
