The Scales of War
Rivenroar Castle is now just an ancient ruin in the mountains to the northeast of Brindol. Built hundreds of years ago it has long been the seat of the Rivenroars, a family of nobles who were of considerable wealth and standing back in the days when Rhest was at the heart of the Vale. With the fall of Rhest the Rivenroars themselves went somewhat into decline and although there are scions of the family still to be found, they are but a shadow of their past status. None now live in the castle and there are none left who could afford to repair it even if they had the will to do so.
About two hundred years ago the Rivenroar Family had some caves below their castle dug out, smoothed out and converted in to catacombs. Although the catacombs were never vast they were big enough that they managed to hold the deceased of the Rivenroars and a couple of allied noble families.
