Bishopthore lies on the South Road. Home to soaring cathedrals dedicated to all of the gods, Bishopthorpe is the religious center of Gulnir. Despite its proximity to the Black Forest, the Shandar seem reluctant to strike against Bishopthorpe, having done so only a few times in the past century. The Woodville family rules in Bishopthorpe, but their power is in name only. The churches are the true power.
