Small shrines within villages located on the plains are often built to encourage smooth weather. There is a place hidden in the East that is called the Shrine of Storms. It is said to house the mighty divine “Sword of Storms”. This blade was a divine creation of Velox and was gifted to the Storm and Cloud Giants.
