Ghost Hill is one of the premiere harbors for traders and travellers sailing between southern Westeros and Essos. Dornish travellers wishing to sail north might consider setting out from Ghost Hill, so as not to risk their lives in the Stepstones amidst the pirates and mercenaries.

House Toland is noted for "successfully resisting" Aegon the Conquerer's dragon conquest. Rather than face them on the field of battle or a siege, they instead left behind their fool to fight as a champion while the noble family and their army escaped into the sands. They returned some time later, after Aegon had moved on.

Their sigil is a green dragon biting it's own tail (a.k.a an ouroborous) on yellow.

Features

  • Harbor, a lively harbor for all the coastal fisherman. Most of the sustenance in Ghost Hill comes from these hard working individuals!
  • Caravanserai, a large caravanserai for land traders braving the drylands and parched plains.
  • Temple to R'hollr, a temple to the red god! Ghost Hill lies in close proximity to Tyrosh in Essos, where the red god's faith thrives.
  • Sea Cave, a secret sea cave for the castle's inhabitants to use.

Construction

While there had never been an approved Ghost Hill beforehand, there were a few failed applications. Until the current Ghost Hill, it had been known as a "cursed" build. If you compare SMP's first app, a year prior, you can see the similarities to the final Ghost Hill.
