A former Vailian fortification claimed a few years back by Captain Aeldys of the Príncipi, after clearing out the horde of wilders that took it over and drove the Vailians away. She uses it as her staging area now, and a hideout for those Príncipi captains who fall in behind her. The Fort is notable for the massive guns that crown its numerous turrets, ensuring that any who would try their luck dislodging the Príncipi will be going back home shot up to hell and back.
