Previously known as Fortress Haine, it is now the current vacation villa of the Orlesian Montfort Family. It was first built by Lord Norbert de la Haine who was assassinated by the Antivan Crows and eventually awarded to Ser Gaston de Montfont during the Exalted Age.
It is located in the Free Marches on the western slopes of the Vimmark Mountains. It was used as a stronghold by the Grey Wardens during the Fourth Blight, with the Vaults, a cavern and lake constructed underneath the mountain to house thousands of refugees. During the Blight it was commanded by the famed Grey Warden mage, Isseya, Garahel's younger sister.
The abundance of wild wyvern in the area led to the Montforts sponsoring seasonal hunting parties to reduce their population, but eventually became a sporting event.
