As Asgarnia's most northward settlement, situated dangerously close to White Wolf Mountain and Trollheim, Burthorpe is less than safe. Swarthy trolls threaten from the plateau above, waiting for chinks to show in the Imperial Guards' black armour.
In response, an atmosphere of military readiness has grown in Burthorpe. The Warriors' Guild and Heroes' Guild have settled in premises as impressive as the incumbent Prince Anlaf's own; slayers travel here for their wares; families based in the town gain prestige when their children are enrolled in the highly-trained Imperial Guard.
There are hopeful signs that the situation may change. Forced into a stalemate against the trolls of Trollheim, the Imperial Guard are pinning hopes on a secret route to their troll adversaries that will, finally, give them the upper hand.
If this threat were not enough, there exists some tension between the Imperial Guard of Burthorpe and the White Knights of Falador. Given their disagreements, Burthorpe has become something of a state of its own; it prescribes its own laws and delivers its own punishments.
Burthorpe's situation is no accident. Hemmed in by mountain ranges, the town has only two means of entrance, both carefully watched.
White Wolf Mountain, famed for the aggressive mammals that dwell on it's snowy passes, forms the south-west boundary of Burthorpe.
A north-west winding passage leads the unsuspecting adventurer to the Death Plaeau.
Burthorpe has developed a crisis of identity that mirrors its two rulers. As mentioned before, the town is driven by its need to defend itself, a position reflected in the leader of the Imperial Guard, Denulth. On the flip side, Prince Anlaf stays confined in his impressive palace. Playing games within his dungeon, this figurehead ruler's passion for recreation is reflected in the town's penchant for the minigame: the Warriors' Guild and several strategy games in the Palace Games Room. These two conflicting attitudes to town management leave Burthorpe something of a chimeric beast.
