The Hinterfast is a keep that lies on the east coast of New Arkhosia. The keep is the seat of a farflung principality, and that borderlands fiefdom is also refered to as “the Hinterfast”.
The Hinterfast itself is well known as a strange keep. It’s walls appear to be grown from massive trees, fused together. The outer walls are festooned with thorns, making scaling the walls hazardous. Most tales do not paint the fort in a good light, and the region is not exactly valuable in this day in age. Regardless of this, Lord Castellan has claimed the keep shortly after claiming his dragon mount and therefore his nobility.
Legend has it that the place is cursed. Tales tell of travelers that would stay the night at the keep, which bustled with activity. The travelers would venture to the nearby coast for some task, returning to the keep after only a fortnight away. They would find the keep empty, with not a single soul or body, as if everybody had just walked away.
