Castle Teraknian is a large fortress, located on a rocky island overlooking the city of Sasserine. For centuries, The castle was the seat of the Teraknian Dynasty. The last Teraknian ruler ot sit here was Arch-Duke Orren, who was overthrown in a violent rebellion. The castle was then taken over by the Sky-Lords of Kendar.

Most recently, this castle was last used as the seat of Kendari Governor Diego Montravon. After he was overthrown in the Uprising in 1227/6, the castle was again abandoned. As of yet, the fortress has not been re-claimed by any party.

Below the castle are many dungeons and underground passages. The most well-known of these underground passages is the Noble’s Vault; the only portion of the castle dungeons still in use. The Vault has always been a place for Sasserine’s nobility to store valuables away from their personal estates. Also below the castle are are the Ducal Crypts; burial chambers for the Teraknian Dynasty. This area has been sealed off for a long time.
