Castle Ravenwood

Located deep within its namesake forest, Castle Ravenwood; also known as Castle Vilmartine, is a large abandoned fortress with a dark and fearful reputation.

Built in the early Fifth Age, this long abandoned castle was once home to a powerful Gwynnish noble family. The castle had long been a possession of the noble House of Vilmartine and unspeakable acts of evil took place there throughout the Fifth Age. The last Lord of Ravenwood was the infamous Malachar Vilmartine; the "Traitor-Knight." After his death during the Cataclysm, the castle was then briefly taken over by his younger brother Sethyr Vilmartine. Soon afterward, Sethyr went mad and killed himself and the ancient castle became an accursed ruin.

Some say the castle is now inhabited by undead vampires and their dark minions, and the entire forest surrounding the castle is a place of fear and dread, nicknamed the ‘Haunted Forest.’
