Brightblade Keep
Castle-26.jpg

One of more than thirty fortresses built along the western base of the Saugreth-Muir to guard against raids and attacks by dark forces of the East. Although most of the keeps were built during the Ravinian period and lie in the Borderlands region, the few remaining ones are manned by the army of Alveron. Brightblade Keep is one of the most important border outposts because it guards Karaway Pass, a strategic thoroughfare in the Saugreth-Muir, and is one of the few passes wide enough to support large troop movements. The keep has been besieged and destroyed by the East on several occasions due to this fact.
