Castle Ungebroch is the seat of King Bertrand Dwendal, located in Rexxentrum.

Description[]

It is a dark stone gothic mass, an awe-inspiring citadel of dizzying size. The central pentagonal stronghold rises up like an intricate jagged monolith, symbolizing the Empire’s power. Numerous pointed battlements and spires surround its towers, with intricate elevated walkways and tall arched windows of stained glass. The central castle curtain wall extends in four directions into the surrounding quadrants that resemble their own separate strongholds, all attached to the main central castle.[1]

The Throne Room is accessed through a large set of double doors carved from a deep red wood, each bearing the crest of the Dwendalian Empire, the owl and wheat over the crown symbol. Inside the enormous chamber, the ceiling ramps up towards the back where extremely tall back walls bear numerous red banners that hang nearly 40 to 50 feet from the apex. The back center of the chamber climbs via stair to multiple small platforms containing high-backed chairs that face inward toward the pinnacle of the rising stairs, where a wide platform holds an incredibly tall throne.[2]

History[]

Campaign Two: The Mighty Nein[]

"Punishment and Politics" (2x87)[]

Following their fight against Obann and the Angel of Irons cult in the Chantry of the Dawn, the Mighty Nein were escorted to the castle for an audience with King Dwendal. After a discussion about the cult's motivations and Tharizdun, the chained Oblivion, telling that Vence Nuthaleus is responsible to have planned the placing of some of the Abyssal anchors, the party were tasked for the negotiation of a peace with the Kryn Dynasty to end the War of Ash and Light.

Trivia[]

  • "Ungebroch", the name of King Dwendal's castle, is close to the German word for "unbroken", which Matt stated to be the case.[3]
