Map: Circle of Cyanos

Home of the Cult Order of Cyanos.

The Circle of Cyanos is the headquarters for the newly risen Order of Cyanos. Not much is known about Cyanos or this order. Average citizens are flocking to the Circle, believing that all their suffering will be alleviated by Cyanos and some secret ritual there. Will our heroes uncover the truth of this strange place?

Note that a door represented by a half circle only opens one direction. The side of the wall the half-circle is on indicates it opening direction. A full-circle door can swing both directions.

The Circle of Cyanos is a walled off compound with large entry doors and each cardinal direction (north, south, east, west). Each entrance has a room off to the side for storing visitors weapons and other possessions.

The main temple area is the centrally located in the arena. Why is the area of worship called an arena? I suspect whatever the reason, it is nefarious!
