Kirguard Fortress

Kirguard Fortress (Last Updated: Flamerule 1369)

Kirguard fortress is a massive military structure used as a strongpoint to protect Port Kir and the southern areas of the Duchy while also serving as the primary seat and home of the Duchal family. The fortress’ dual nature is reflected in having three separate keeps within the overall fortress structure: Sealook Keep (Duchal Family), the Lion’s Hold (Military), and Kirwatch Keep (Guests, Servants & Services). In addition, the fortress has both an extended loading dock directly above the water and secret loading dock built deep under the fortress.
