Within the souther borders of the lands of House Royce is the ancient village of Fotheringhay, nestled between the mountains and the coast. Trade from merchants that have travelled the road between Saltpans and Runestone since the Ages of the Falcon Kings, has enabled the village’s thriving agricultural industry. Pastures, wineyards, and sprawling fields are all protected by a defensible keep perched upon the cliffs above. Fotheringhay stands as a testament to the endurance of House Royce.

  • Fotheringhay Keep, a modest castle dug into the cliff face. It boasts a large garrison, which protects the village and road below from potential attackers.
  • Fothersons Livestock Auction Yard, a wealthy establishment that predates the village.


Fotheringhay was constructed by Justcallmejack as a part of the Runestone project. The village saw the first use of a unique middle class house design that was quickly replicated across the Vale. (See Forum)
