Vanguard Keep

Vanguard Keep is a large fortress built during the Fourth Age in the Borderlands region at the eastern edge of the Bramblethorn Forest to guard against attacks by the eastern barbarians.

This fortress was built in conjunction with Westgard Keep as the eastern border outposts of the Kingdom of Alveron. The Vanguard Keep is very strategic because it lies along the East Road leading to the Salkröth, and is an important early warning post. The Keep is currently under the command of Baron Elghar Wyndom.
