Castle Rannick

Castle Rannick is a large fortress which serves as home to the rangers of the Black Arrow Company.

The castle is located on the western banks of the Willow River, 40 miles north of Turtleback Ferry.

Because of the increasing threat of ogre raids, the "Black Arrows" actively patrol the southern foothills of the Crystalpeak Mountains, a region called "Hook Mountain."


Several centuries ago, the royal court in Iskandar ordered the castle built to protect the local people from both the Stone Giants and the Ogres who dwelt nearby.

The castle has been garrisoned for many years by the Rangers of the Black Arrow Company. At one time, Shalelu; an elven ranger hailing from this unit, was based here.
