Bishan was once a great fortress in the Aurim Empire, and was known for the fact that it was an impregnable fortress that had never been conquered or claimed in battle. Broad gates kept it closed, and marble towers reached the heavens. Bishan finally fell due to plague and famine following the Great Destruction, and it was left abandoned.
Human bandits later claimed Bishan as their own private fortress, and used it as a base of operations. In 425 AC, the Hobgoblin army of Maladar an-Desh came through Bishan, and slew every last defender before moving on through the region.
