Darmshall was a small city in the hostile lands of Vaasa in the Bloodstone Lands.[1][2]


It was as much a fortress as it was a city surrounded by capable walls lined with siege weaponry and grizzled soldiers. Beneath the city was a huge store of food and supplies to enable the city to withstand long periods of isolation.[1][2]


The city was founded by the Tenblades adventuring band during the early explorations of the region. The group's leader, Romas Thunderclap, built the fortress to act as a bastion of order in Vaasa after two of his companions were murdered. His efforts were successful, as even during the conquests of Zhengyi the Witch-King, Darmshall never fell, despite being besieged by many goblins.[1]
