The Runelords will Rise
The Saintly Haven of Respite, better known locally as Habe’s Sanatorium, is run by Erin Habe, an expert on disease and mental derangement who is as welltraveled as he is knowledgeable. Independently wealthy from his years as a doctor in Magnimar, he chose to build this sanatorium in a remote dale south of Sandpoint for precisely that reason — its seclusion. Here, he hoped his wards would find the peace of mind they needed to heal, and he himself would find the peace to continue his own experiments into what caused their respective dementias without worrying about other folk misunderstanding his sometimes necessarily bloody methods.
The squat, stone building that serves as the sanatorium has three floors under a stout stone-flagged roof, built in the lee of the limestone escarpment known as Ashen Rise. All doors are simple wooden ones, and a brisk sense of cleanliness fills the place—floors are scrubbed and walls are freshly painted white.
The somewhat sour smell of burning incense abounds — a scent that Habe has found soothes most deviant minds.
