Castle Maerimydra Comprises of three basic structures, the Great Tower, the Lesser Tower and the South Column, Castle Maerimydra was the heart of Maerimydra and the the seat of the ruling house.[1]

Physical DescriptionEdit

Standing atop a 100ft high plateau, the elegant curves and fluted battlements of this castle representing the epitome of drow aesthetics. [2] At 250ft tall and comprising of seven floors Castle Maerimydra was by far the the largest Noble House in Maerimydra.

HistoryEdit

Originally the castle housed the hundreds of drow that comprised House Chûmavh until the Silence of Lolth and the betrayal of the city's Archmage brought ruin to the drow city. The armies of Kurgoth Hellspawn attacked the city and as the surving loyalists of House Chûmavh barred themselves inside Castle Maerimydra the Fire giants, Demons and Goblinoids beseiged it.[3]

However on Elient 28 1372 DR, Irae T'sarran the leader of the cult of Kiaransalee in Maerimydra, gathered her followers to her and slaughtered the remaining Lolth-worshipping drow of House Chûmavh and seized the castle for her own.[4] Much to the annoyance of the Jaezred Chaulssin who also plotted to sieze control of the city.[5]

By Marpenoth 17 Irae managed to summon the The Undying Temple above Castle Maerimydra which disrupted the Weave in a growing radius around the castle.[4]

DefencesEdit

Warded by a powerful Forbiddance spell that prevents most creatures from entering without the proper password. The walls of the castle itself were magically strengthened to make them even harder to breach.[6]
