Location

A former monastery set on a bluff overlooking the Sea of Crete, roughly halfway between Knossos and Chanea. It was the home to a group of Orthadox monks whom were interested in natural magic and science. It was built on a site that was once a small temple dedicated to Poseidon. Years of sacrifices, rituals and the practicing of natural magic has left the site with an Magical aura of 4. The site was abandoned after the coming of the Venetians during the 4th crusade.

Description

A walled monastery with a bell tower, stable and main monastic building.

- The entire site is surrounded by a strong stone wall of about 10 ft tall and 2 ft thick.

- The stable is large enough to house 6 horses.

- The main building is large enough to support 7 sanctums and laboratories, as well as the living quarters for up to 20 additional residents. It contains a large library room, kitchen and common dining hall.
