Castle Rannick

Castle Rannick is a large mountain fortress that serves as the home base of the Black Arrow Company.

The Black Arrow rangers patrol the northern Hinterlands region of Cyrendar, including the ogre-infested foothills around the Crystalpeak Mountains.

The castle is located in the foothills of the Crystalpeak Mountains, 40 miles north of the Turtleback Ferry; on the western banks of the Willow River.


The castle was built several centuries ago to protect the peoples of the Hinterlands from both the Stone Giants and the Ogres who dwelt nearby. The castle has been garrisoned for many years by an order of Rangers known as the Black Arrow Company. At one time, Shalelu; an elven ranger hailing from this unit, was once based here.
