Hostel of the Sacred Stone

Centuries ago, dwarven workers constructed a massive
underground aqueduct, linking a distant mountain lake
to their temple in a distant city. Their aqueduct
complete, the dwarves built a monastery at the lake
where their most elderly workers retired; as it turned
out, this location proved a most dangerous choice, as
the dwarves faced constant raiding by local stone
giants—that is, until a dwarven cleric managed to
convert one stone giant to their cause.

The stone giant, taking the mantle Sonnlinor
Stoneheart, dedicated himself to defending the mountain
temple—even in the face of a far greater threat, that
of a blue dragon awakened to the scent of the temple’s
rich tribute. Sonnlinor Stoneheart sacrificed himself in
the dragon’s attack, pulling the mountainside atop them
both. Yet such became the legend of his actions that the
stone giant was sainted and his remains recovered as
holy reliquaries. These reliquaries, a piece of the stone
giant’s bone and his largest throwing rock, were taken
down the mountain and incorporated into a local hostel.
As far as Sonnlinor Stoneheart’s legend spread, so
folks came to marvel at the healing powers of his reliquaries
(and enjoy the hostel’s unusual run of good
beer).
