The Imperial Observatory

Constructed in the center of the city, the golden dome of the Imperial Observatory can be seen from the lowest of the slums it towers over. Once inside, it's easy to see where the egocentric scholars of the Order of the Stars funneled the Kingdom's resources. They would rather gild their over-engineered toys than see even a few coins trickle down to the less fortunate. However, After years of trampling on top of the lower members of society for a better view of their precious stars, they stumbled upon something that stared back. No one is sure what they saw, but it seems in a cruel twist of fate, the scholars repaid the debt with their sanity.
