No New Posts Winterwatch Tower

Winterwatch Tower is a mountain keep in the Hinterlands.

The keep was constructed by Arl Tiranon Guerrin, to serve as a temporary residence for his eldest son Lornan. As Lornan had not lived up to the expectations of his father, Arl Tiranon tasked him with cleaning the surrounding mountains of bandits, not permitting him to return to Redcliffe until he had done so.

No New Posts Valammar

Valammar is a vast, ancient dwarven thaig in Hinterlands which served as a base of operations for a Carta leader during the Mage-Templar War.

The thaig is notable for being partly open to the surface and featuring a massive waterfall as well as trees and other flora. As in Orzammar the settlement is designed in a series of tiers.

No New Posts Redcliffe Village

Sitting on the western shore of Lake Calenhad, the village of Redcliffe is so named for the reddish hues of the cliffs that tower above it. A path leads up into the hills and across a bridge to an island where the ancient Castle Redcliffe has stood far longer than the village itself.

“The fate of Redcliffe is the fate of all Ferelden.” ―Calenhad Theirin

Redcliffe is located in the western hills of Ferelden. The village below the castle (and others under Redcliffe's authority) grew until the arling was as powerful a settlement as any teyrnir. Redcliffe Castle is the first and last line of defense for the sole land route into Ferelden and the country has never fallen to any assault that did not first take Redcliffe.

Redcliffe is one of the largest and most prosperous towns in Ferelden, due to its position between Orzammar and Orlais. As such it is a center of foreign trade. Such favorable conditions caused the domain to be named an arling in spite of its small size. The citizens of Redcliffe are primarily fishermen or merchants engaged in shipping dwarven goods from Orlais.

In late autumn the villagers smoke the fish they have caught, to the dismay of visiting merchants.

By 9:32 Dragon, the Bannorn increasingly looked to the Arl of Redcliffe for guidance and leadership. It was speculated that if this continued, Redcliffe would become a rival of Denerim.
