Castle Lorelei was the home of House Lorelei. It is located in the Dwendalian Empire on the edges of the Cyrengreen Forest, about a day's journey from Deastok.[1] It was home to the Lorelei family for many generations.

Background

The Lorelei bloodline stretches back about three centuries, but only rose to prominence during the war between the Dwendalian Empire and the Julous Dominion. The Lorelei's proved their worth in that conflict and were gifted with a stretch of land upon which Castle Lorelei was built.[2]

Keep

There is a staircase that leads to an upper floor. The bed chambers of the Lorelei family and Haldur's study formed a ring around the vestibule below.

Chapel

Against the outer walls of the castle, the family built a chapel dedicated to The Moonweaver. Its pews were pushed aside and various dismembered corpses of castle attendants piled up there when the Lorelei children arrived.[3]

Cemetery

The cemetery was the resting place for the castle's servants and contained the Lorelei family mausoleum. The mausoleum was built into a naturally formed underground cave system, which was partially walled off.[4]
