Cenotaph of the Cynic

After the Plague of Madness decimated Wati’s population but before the necropolis was consecrated, Wati’s few remaining citizens constructed this tomb-like monument in honor of all those who had fallen to the plague. With the coming of the Pharasmins and the creation of the necropolis, the cenotaph was re-purposed to house the remains of those citizens who professed no faith in the gods at all.
Today, a cult of lamia sisters called the Amushet inhabits the Cenotaph of the Cynic, guarding it against the living, the dead, and especially the divine. The sisters visit brutal justice on trespassers, but generously welcome fellow atheists or others shunned by the gods. The Amushet sometimes take mates from curious visitors, using them to sire the next generation of their clan. Uncharacteristically merciful for lamias, the sisters allow their paramours to leave merely blinded and hideously insane.
