The Temple of Lihevanînî otherwise known as the Temple of Haukim and Anbay or the Temple of Arbitration and Judgment, was the largest and last temple dedicated to the gods Haukim and Anbay to remain active. It was responsible for many duties such as training priests, acting as a public worship area for the gods and for directing the rest of the temples under their control.
Supplicants would come for justice and arbitration over disputes. This would range from contracts being decided on, contracts being written, and criminals being judged. Even for those who made a pact with an outsider to have that pact decided on.
The temple is rumored to have a way to cut all ties, wards, and bonds when the decision was made. Each party would receive what the gods believed was their due, while the gods themselves would take a small part from both parties as payment for their arbitration.
The temple did not outlive the end of the Khmet Empire during the first War of the Three. The Valley of the Nine where it is located fell into disuse with the destruction and all the temples closed eventually.
Brave adventurers would sometimes venture either to raid the treasures left here, or to utilize the abilities of the temple. Either way it is a dangerous place to go and most do not return. Over the last few centuries however a menace has appeared in the valley, inserting itself into all the temples.
Red rock, sand and sandstone have begun intermixing with the local area’s yellow and orange sands. Some say blood drips from this interloping terrain causing the red to spread. It is unknown what is causing this or why.
