Religious Council of Hardby
Priestesses of Wee Jas, Joramy, Myhriss and Osprem sit on the religious council of the Gynarch. They advise the Gynarch on matters spiritual and political. Further, the religious council decides which faiths are allowed to establish shrines and temples within city limit. They also hear disputes between the various churches over many issues. The council is fairly liberal in who they allow, and they tend not to allow faiths that might be disruptive to the citizens’ daily life. The followers of Pholtus and St. Cuthbert have been lobbying for years to establish shrines in Hardby, but the priestesses dislike their patriarchal and intolerant stances towards women and members of other faiths. As a good will gesture to the Cuthbertites, they have allowed a large temple dedicated to Mayahene to be constructed. The Cuthbertites have a small shrine there.
