The Tribunal Temple in Gnisis
The Gnisis Temple is a large Tribunal Temple located in the center of Gnisis.
This temple offers a small selection of services. Along the temple wall are a few merchants―a smith and a clothier. Shrines of St. Llothis and St. Rilm are found here.
The real attraction is the Shrine of the Mask (a.k.a. Shrine of Justice), wherein is stored Vivec's Ashmask, accessed via a hidden panel (which opens if you bring the right offering: a Potion of Cure Common Disease) in the shrine. Touching the real mask causes it to cast a combined Cure Blight and Cure Common Disease spell on you. It also grants you the spell Vivec's Touch, which will cure the same two diseases on touch for only 10 Magicka (the cost of such a spell would normally be 115 Magicka). This spell is primarily of use in the Gnisis Eggmine quest, though having it permits you to create a Cure Blight Disease on Self immediately with the help of Spellmaker Mehra Drora in the same facility. A replica of the Mask is seen on the altar behind the pillar, but it doesn't do anything. Neither mask can be picked up, so do not fear the Guards.
On a shelf in the room with the pillar are copies of the 36 Lessons of Vivec, Sermon 21, Sermon 22, and Sermon 23, skill books for Light Armor, Medium Armor, and Long Blade, respectively. This temple is one of the locations where an Almsivi Intervention spell may take you.
