These are the ruins of a once-powerful stronghold in the middle of the forest. Originally, it stood as a hideout for women and children during the last Dark Times, manned, defended and occupied by members of every race and nation. While a work of art in terms of defense, it was discovered by the invaders from Arkenos, who overcame the defenses and killed or abducted all inhabitants. The stronghold stands in ruins, although its structure remains fairly secure due to it’s original design. However, it is not inhabited by any from the living. Instead, it, and the surrounding area are the areas are haunted by the ghosts of the slain women and children. Only skyships pass over the area now. Virtually nobody travels through the lands and forests surrounding the haunted stronghold.
