Rivergard Keep [note 1]) was a stone fortification on the banks of the River Dessarin, in the Sumber Hills, south of the Stone Bridge and north of Ironford.[1]

As of 1491 DR, the fortification consisted of a stone keep and gatehouse, with a curtain wall linking it to a river tower and a dock. At this time, it was in need of repairs.[1]

Around 1491 DR, the keep was inhabited by the Cult of the Crushing Wave, and led by Jolliver Grimjaw, who claimed to be restoring the site as "Lord of the Castle" so that he could use it as a means to protect river-based trade.[1]
