Castle Teraknian

Castle Teraknian is a vast, ancient fortress, located on a rocky island overlooking the city of Sasserine.

It is often said, "Castle Teraknian is not in any of the seven districts of Sasserine, and yet it belongs to all of them."

For centuries, This ancient fortress was the seat of the Teraknian Dynasty. The last Teraknian ruler to sit here was Arch-Duke Orren the Cruel; who was overthrown in a violent rebellion 125 years ago. The castle was then taken over by the Sky-Lords of Kendar.

In recent years, this castle was last used as the seat of Kendari Governor Diego Montravon. Ever since he was overthrown in the Uprising of 1227/6, the castle has been abandoned. As of the present day, 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 Vaults; the Vault is the only portion of the castle dungeons still known to be in use. The Vault has always been a secure place for Sasserine’s nobility to store valuables away from their personal estates.

Also below the castle are the Ducal Crypts; the sacred burial chambers for the former members of House Teraknian. Unlike the Noble Vaults; this area has been sealed off for a long time.
