Runestone Castle.png

Runestone is a large castle located south of Lucerne, and north of the town of Gulltown and is dominated by House Royce who hold a hereditary domination of it. Runestone is built onto the largest of the three peaks of Runburgh and can only be reached by a long bridge that can obviously be destroyed by the defenders thus making it unreachable. Within the depths of Runestone is a large underground lake that has a large amount of both available water, and fish for the garrison and population of the castle. Surrounding Runestone Castle lies the town of Runburgh which has expanded to a large extent due to the trade brought into the area due to the existence of the two Runestone Guilds that bring in the wealthy for their skills.

Runestone was first founded by the Dwaves of whom led by Clan Runestar came to the peaks of Runburgh upon the discovery of large sources of Gromril in the four peaks of Runburgh the Dwarves established Thaig Runburgh at the sight of the now Runestone Castle, and mined the peaks of Runburgh. The Dwarves would suffer constant attacks on their holding by Trollocs that dominated the Runburgh FOrest and these attacks bled the population of the Dwarves of the region for generations. The Great Migration into the Valley of Lucerne brought thousands of Vandals into the area and as they moved into the Runburgh Forest they fought with the Trollocs leading to an alliance between the Dwarves and Humans which eventually rid the Runburgh Forest of the Trolloc population. The Dwarves of Thaig Runburgh would be betrayed by the Vandals after years of peaceful coexcistence, and this betrayal led to the unlocking of the Vault of Runburgh and the foundation of both the Runestone Guild of Smithing, and the Runestone Guild of Runes, as well as the killing of the Dwarven population of Thaig Runburgh.
