Castle Ravenwood

Castle Ravenwood; also known as Castle Vilmartine, is a large abandoned fortress located deep within the Ravenwood. The castle has 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 Vilmartine family of Gwynnish nobility, and unspeakable evil acts took place there throughout the Fifth Age. The last Lord of Ravenwood was thre infamous Malachar Vilmartine; the "Traitor-Knight." After his death during the Cataclysm, the castle was then briefly taken over by his bastard son Sethyr Vilmartine. Soon afterward, Sethyr went mad and killed himself and the castle became an accursed, abandoned 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.’
