[Dragons Cliff] Loyalty, Discipline and Honesty [Elsdragon Fortress]





 
Work in progress as I consolidate all the locations to one thread.
 









Notable Locations:
River Bridge/Gate
Farm

Outer Bailey:
Main Gatehouse
Inn
Harbor

Inner Bailey:
Inner Gatehouse
Les Bateaux De L'air
Elsdragon Naval Yard

Castle:
The Iron Gate
Ma Forge D'espoir


The castle city had become well known in Northumbria and beyond, it was built on an empty cliff side at the beginning of ERA ??? when the head of House Elsdragon sought to grow his houses power and influence in the region. It was designed to be a representation of the families wealth and security, while lavish in construction each aspect served a practical function in order to be defended against attack and siege. This gave clear indication to the military history of the house. The construction was delayed with the Longest Winter where House Elsdragon donated the bulk of the construction materials of the castle and its outlying town to the citizens of Jaedaxia to allow them to survive during the cold temperatures. This greatly reduced the family’s wealth at the time but did well with rising their reputation and prestige as a house who put the needs of the people above their own material wealth. When the snow melted, this proved successful in rallying the local population around the Elsdragon banner and beginning the construction with new vigor.

The Dragons Gate, built to echo the strength and wealth of the house that constructed it. Sitting at the top a ornately carved Dragon looking east towards the closest coastline, few knew that it was designed to look towards the Trident Isles. Its wings completely spread across the left and right of the gatehouse, Dragon Cliff’s only land based entrance. Heavily armed soldiers can be seen patrolling the wingspan of the elaborately designed structure, their Emerald capes streaming proudly behind them as they march in pairs in defense of their home.

The Dragons Gate stood as the main entry way into Dragons Cliff from the countryside, standing easily six stories high the outside walls were some of the most heavily fortified defenses in the country spanning from shore to shore protecting those within from the outside world and utilizing the Cliffside as a strategic defense. The gates were constructed of thick stone, with three entry ways several meters across each. The large iron portcullis hung from the ceiling ready to drop should the order be given, controlled out of sight within the gatehouse itself.

At each gateway a small detachment of guards stood watch over all those entering and leaving the fortress city. Each guard wore the common uniform, steel plate with Emerald sashes and cloaks moving in the brisk wind. Their eyes watchful of everything that passed through the stone archways. “Please state your name and business.” A guard would ask firmly. While it was rare for the guard to confiscate weapons at times they did so should suspicious arise. The guards were always polite and respectful but tolerated little push back in their questions. The refinement and discipline echoed the military training provided to them. The very embodiment of Discipline.

An ornate pathway led you over the distance between the main castle and the library, careful and skilled craftsmen carved the bannisters from a combination of stone and wood. Small slits in the stone were made for torches to light the pathway in the late darkening. Either side of the pathway a perfect view of the Cliffside and the ocean below gave all those that walked a cool breeze from the ocean surrounding Dragons Cliff.

After a short flight of stone steps one would find themselves in the circular library of the retreat, Stained glass windows decorated the ornately carved stone and wood. Gold liefing lined the trim and corners, of the windows. Sunlight poured in from various windows regardless of the time of brightening, a perfect place to escape with one of the books.

Shelves upon shelves of books, tombs, scrolls, maps lined each wall and every amount of free space. In the center of the room several sofas and chairs sat waited each guest, in the very middle a circular table made of iron and glass to hold any assortment of food and drink.

Before the Dragons Gate
Era XXIV

The guards at the dragons gate would receive their most likely first questionable visitor of the brightening rather early, in the form of a young woman with a sword that any warrior seasoned or not could tell was probably to large for her slung across her back. She wore a blue and white dress, with frills of all things lining a large portion of almost every hem that could be seen as her leather shoes carried her towards them, her face blank of nervousness or hostility...or much of any emotion at all as she came to halt once questioned.

“Please state your name and business.”
"Ah...training......smith.", the stranger would reply with a quiet voice, her eyes moving to meet the guards even as her head tilted slightly.

The guard looked Nye over curiously at first, somewhat puzzled by her choice of words. "I dont believe the smithy has a resident smith miss..." he stated and looked over to another of the guards who shrugged back at them in confusion.

"I am sorry but you might need to seek out a smith in Jaedaxia..." he began to state when he was cut off. "I will take her to the smithy, I think Lord Elsdragon is bringing a smith there to help him with the shop." a stonic tone came from a figure wrapped in a thick coat being Nye. When she looked she would see a young elf with sea green eyes, medium length silver hair, standing at 5' 9". "Serale, I am Feanaro. I dabble in blacksmithing but no where near as skilled as my father Findecano. Is he who you were looking for?" he asked, like her with little emotion in his voice.

The young lasses eyes would widen slightly at the news that the castle before her didn't actually have a resident smith. What she lacked in words she made up for with an easy to read expression that seemed to convey that she had fully expected all castles to have smith's inside them. But before she could comment, a voice behind her spoke up and seemed to fix the situation.

"Findecano?", she'd parrot, her voice small and questioning as she visibly thought over the name, betraying the fact that it was the first time she'd ever heard of the two of them with her voice and expression. She wasn't that good at deception it seemed. Then with a nod, she'd look Feanaro in the eye and reply.
"Yes.....meet."
