Naos of T'Ar
The oxen-pulled wagon rumbled along the twisted maze of streets, its cargo moaning when the wagon bounced over an out-of-place cobblestone. A lamplighter stopped pulling his cart of wicks, oils, and flamestrikes to let the wagon pass before crossing the street. The lamplighter dipped his horns to the driver and mumbled a short prayer to T'Ar.He snorted the scent of blood clear of his nostrils. It was his duty to ensure there would be light on the way to the naos, not to pray for them. Prayers were best given by the clerics, anyways. He pulled his cart over to the first lamp on his route. Light. He would give the injured some comforting light.
A naos is a place of healing and prayer for the Brahmaur. Unlike other temples, a naos is built like a large stone storehouse surrounded on all sides by a tile-roofed veranda held up by beautifully styled pillars. Statues of Brahmaur saints stand beneath this veranda and are often prayed to while the families of the hurt or sick await word on the condition of their loved ones being treated inside. Inside, the naos opens onto a long spacious room of beds for the sick and injured with a grand statue of T'Ar to watch over them. Beyond this spacious room, the rest of the naos holds rooms for surgical treatments, medicines, and resting rooms for the healers.
What is a Naos
Brahmaur are a race of minotaurs who stand a head and a half taller than humans. Unlike the much bigger and far more savage minotaurs who enjoy feasting on raw people, Brahmaur are vegetarians. This has led to them being smaller but more intelligent. The biggest advantage this has given them is an immunity to all magic, bad or good. With this immunity, comes the inability to be healed by magics. Potions, elixers, and prayers have no affect on them. Because of this, healing has become a vital art for their survival. The clerics of T'Ar are devoted to this art and have developed many medicines to aid their people.
