Puppets of the Shadow
Citadel of the Watch
The Citadel of the Watch sits at the highest peak of the Wyrmspine Mountains and is the sister city of Faldale in most respects. Founded as a bastion of proection for travelers crossing the mountains, it also serves as the training ground for Faldale's Mage Knights under the command of Lieutenant Ryko, who is also the head of government in the Citadel.
Originally a fortress at Godspear Peak – the highest summit in the Wyrmspines – from which scholarly mages and watchful soldiers could cast an eye over most of the continent, it grew over the passing centuries to a full city in its own right. Here one can find travelers, adventurers, sages, scholars, soldiers and their families, all quartered together for light, warmth, and the company of decent folk in the frigid and unforgiving mountains.
The Citadel maintains close diplomatic and military support ties with the dwarven stronghold Earthroot in the northern end of the mountains, as well as its obvious connection to Faldale.
