The Town

The Castle

The castle has high, ancient stone walls with moss climbing up them. There are two huge, square towers flanking the gate and a square tower at each angle in the wall. It is also defended by a deep moat lined with stone. Inside the walls there is a muddy outer ward, a cavernous timber keep and a godswood.

Lord Blackwood's solar is large and airy, with great beams of dark oak. Wool tapestries adorn its walls, while latticework doors with panes of diamond-shaped yellow glass overlook the godswood.

Raventree's godswood contains a dead, ancient weirwood of colossal size. Every evening at dusk hundreds of ravens come and roost all night on the dead weirwood as they have for thousands of years. It is claimed to have been poisoned by the Brackens.
