Cold Mountain Keep

Cold Mountain Keep is a strategically important outpost of Ammarind, guarding its northern border with Marundi.


This powerful keep was built in the early Sixth Age to guard the kingdom's northenr border against Marundian invasions. The keep is located in the eastern foothills the Ironrock Mountains and is built atop a great outcropping of rock, aptly called "Cold Mountain."

The castle is said to be the second strongest Ammarindi fortress after Athos-Sorel. Every invasion of Ammarind from the North and East has come down the North Road that lies within sight of this lofty fortress, and it is well garrisoned today.

Cold Mountain Keep is accessible via the North Road which connects it to Kren’s Crossing to the north, and Athos-Sorel to the south.
