Hortical

The High Priests lead a Theocracy that claims independence from the Human Kingdoms of Kandor and Vilgreere. All are welcome to the great and beautiful city but all must also bring tithe for the gods of Life and goodness.

The Grand Cathredral of the Gods – at the heart of Hortical the Priest Council rules from the Grand Cathedral. Adorned with untold riches, this structure is glorious to behold, towering far above the city of Hortical.
