Trollwatch Castle


A motte-and-bailey swamp castle with a circular stone keep and a wooden palisade. It is home to the Thane of Trollwatch and his family. From its motte is has an excellent view of the moor and its primary purpose is protecting the glen from threats coming from it. The castle sees constant attacks from trolls, griffons, and was once badly damaged by an attack by a black dragon that also killed the second Thane.
