Fort Hamaglen is the seat of Steward Vane and is also a key starting location. There is an upper level housing the Jolly Dragon Inn, where visitors are allowed to tread, and a lower level housing official affairs.
The Fort is a southern watch-post for the much larger Hamaglen Keep, which is nestled behind strong walls deeper with Hamaglen Pass. If threats approach, whether Orc invaders or sorcerous intruders, it is the Stewards job to assess any danger and warn the defenders of the Pass.
Regardless of reasons for visitation, guests are expected to refrain from displays of violence... under threat of intervention from the Steward and his elite Guards.
