Verdeel & Its Surrounds
Dyratina is a goddess who is most well known among adventurers, travelers and merchants. While the common folk of Verdeel frequently pray to her for minor requests regarding lost possessions, as the patron goddess of the lost, her primary interest lies in guiding wayward souls to safety. Pilgrims often offer alms to Dyratina before long journeys, while her knights accompany caravans travelling along dangerous highways. In fact, the Spiral Knights are her patrons within the city of Verdeel.
According to the rumour mill, the Tower was built as some kind of temple to Dyratina. The reason for its absurd height is to act a beacon for any who might be lost in the region. Some point out that this cannot possibly be right, due to the lack of a light on top for night-time travelers. Scholar rebuke this by mumbling things about “holy light” and “prayers for guidance”, while throwing their arms into the air indignantly.
