A Spot of Silver
Located in the village of Harken, Harken Castle is the seat of power of Baron Stockmer. Recently constructed by the Baron, using the quarries of Easthill as a stone supply and the cliffs to the east of Harken as a strong, defensible site, the castle has since been taken over by the Iron Circle, who have renamed it the Iron Keep.
Harken Castle is not the most impressive or monumental structure in the Nentir Vale, but it is certainly the only keep of its kind in Harkenwold. Its design and construction was overseen by the dwarf Old Kellar, a resident of Harken, and shows much evidence of dwarven influence upon its architecture. As a result, it was designed as a functional, practical stronghold.
