Grand Cathedral of Kelemvor
In the center of
Sepulcher ward stands this, the largest building of
the district. As the off ice and home of Bishop Keppira
d’Bear of the Fateful Church of Kelemvor and a retinue
of lower-ranking clerics and faithful warriors, the Grand
Cathedral acts as a barracks, temple, and keep. Its high,
black-marble walls contain few windows (more on the
second floor than the first, but even those are mostly
just arrow slits).
The Grand Cathedral has served as a secure location multiple times, and despite a half-dozen sieges by undead, it has yet to fall. More commonly, the cathedral acts as a strongpoint and place of rest during the reverse sieges that occasionally plague the district. These reverse sieges occur when formerly interred residents rise and attempt to escape beyond the walls of the district, forcing the clerics to form a living wall around the perimeter. The clerics forming these living walls perform coordinated turnings, forcing the undead back toward the center of the district and the destructive defenses of the Great Cathedral.
