Under the Iron Sky
The Ruins of Amaloss Keep
Located just over 10 miles south of Avarest, it takes about two hours to reach the ruins of Amaloss Keep. The fortress was originally built to watch over one of the primary trade routes heading into town, but it was breached during an war long ago and abandoned. Prince Amaloss had it repaired during his siege to use as a base of operations, but it was torn down after the Prince was dead and the siege ended. Today, it is a tumble of ruined stone blocks, covered in moss, with tall grasses growing from the cracks.
While the road continues past the ruin, most travelers avoid stopping here for too long. Many say the place is haunted, but in reality, it is just a grim reminder of a dark time in the city’s history that most would rather forget.
