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


Castle Lorelei is built on a tall hill at the edge of the Cyrengreen Forest. Within the castle walls is a large courtyard, around which are many low buildings: the chapel, the kitchens, the meeting hall, the stables, and the keep. The keep and the guard towers surrounding the castle's walls are three stories tall; the other buildings have only one floor.


The tallest building in the castle is the keep. Inside on the first floor is a great hall with a hearth. There is staircase that leads to a the second floor, on which is Haldur's study and the bed chambers of the Lorelei family, which form a ring around the vestibule below.

  • Haldur's Study: Haldur's study is filled with bookshelves and ledgers. On the wall is a map of Wildemount, and a mount for his sword, Vargr. In the center of the room is a leather armchair and a desk.


Against the outer walls of the castle to the left of the keep, the family built a chapel dedicated to Sehanine, the Moonweaver. When the Lorelei children arrived, its pews were pushed aside, and various dismembered corpses of castle attendants were piled up on the floor.[2]

The cemetery is a half-mile away from the back of the castle. It is the resting place for the castle's servants and contains the Lorelei family mausoleum. The mausoleum was built into a naturally formed underground cave system, which has been partially walled off.[3]
