I hereby am recruiting fun-loving murder-happy skakdi to lend their rotating sawblades to the forces of--
Fort Garsi, the Keep of Bones
The woman herself, Ipsudir Garsi—a figure of towering charisma not matched by her stature. But this warlord loves to play with expectations, and she values people as clever and as ruthless as she is.
Location Southeast Zakaz, the mountains in between Spineless Bay and The Warrens.
Description Fort Garsi is a near perfect cube, the result of a long line of Stone Skakdi with perhaps too much time on their hands. The walls are cut through with patterns of iron—some say they’re Nakhil witchcraft but it’s more likely that the hundreds of cleverly concealed blades are what actually keeps anyone from climbing them.
Any would-be conquerer, however would have to first make their way through the acre of iron fences, false tunnels, real tunnels, conveniently collapsable trenches, and the occasional hungry rahi. There’s a reason this keep has stood for centuries.
Forces The Garsi family has sway over a few dozen retainers whose families gathered around Amanis;dii when she first seized these lands. These are the people most likely to actually be at the fort.
Ipsudir, in her campaign to both seize back the lands stolen by Malnak and restore the clans reputation as warriors, has ordered those physically able to to take a more aggressive role in combat and to leave the keep more often. She’s also started to recruit new blood, but she doesn’t want a simple mercenary after money—she wants people with goals, with pride in their work, with ambition…not too much though, for their own health. The Lady of Linens took her position by resting it from the cold hands of quite a few people, and she knows that there are plenty who would like to do the same to her.
Loot Only one way to find out…gather together and roll the dice.
