This imposing woodland fortress, located within the borders of
Fogbough Forest , is the ancestral home

The castle was abandoned nearly two hundred years ago, following
the death of Umborek Baleward and the subsequent
flight of his only son, Umdurol .
When the castle was occupied, four magical beacons burned in each of

the creeping curse that has long plagued Fogbough, and protect the
abode of the stewards as they waged their incessant battle against
the growing evil in the wood.
