Ravenholdt2
Ravenholdt
is a very large fortress located in the extreme east end of Weerhousen. Ravenholdt is best known for as the home base of the Assasins of the Raven Order.

Ravenholdt was first founded by the orginal members of the assasins of the Raven, which is what the current Ravenholdt is still ruled by. In its original form the fortress was meant to be the European home of the Order, and to be completely hidden to the society it was meant to protect. During the Assasin Civil War the main branch of the assasins was destroyed in Nehekhara the former main base of the Order and because of this there locations were given away to the Selekhar of whom were an assasin order founded by the Apostle Peter and were dire hard loyalists of Nehekhara and not the world. Ravenholdt overnight discovered they were the only ones basically left of the old order, and thus they attempted to rebuild the Order in Europe using what little strength they had left. Over the centuries their leadership was taken over from the inside by members that wished to become more open in who they assisted and for what reasons. Obviously the fortress has become as corupted as the Order it maintains and now no longer is it even a secret location, as outside of the fortress are the tents of numerous diplomats who are constantly attempting to purchase the services of Ravenholdt for their personal needs, a job that was once heritcal for the Order. Where once their were just honored members of the Order of the Ravens the fortress now contains a veritable city inside of it with a population in the thousands. Ravenholdts leadership recently suffered losses after Ezio Ederiz took a large group of assasins and founded the Order of the Violet Dragon in the Kingdom of Lucerne, and since this time the Raven Order has attempted to once again rebuild itself under the leadership of its first chancelor in nearly five hundred years in the form of Jaiden Altare.

Layout

Ravenholdt was constructed into a mountaintop nestled over the Orontes Valley, with a village at its base and a walled fortress at its peak. A palisade wall, and several Ravenholdt guards that patrolled the interior and exterior of Ravenholdt protected the base. The sides of the massive castle are protected by immensely high and sheer mountain walls, with a low lake below that could be seen from the entire left-hand side of the fortress and village. A second mountainous valley and river could be seen on the opposite side of the fortress, but not from the village. Over the second valley on the right-hand side of Ravenholdt lies a series of wooden beams with ropes overhanging them, criss-crossing until they reached the back of a high tower that appeared impossible to scale from the front.

The Raven Keep

Ravenholdt1
At the peak of the mountain lay the main fortress of the Order of the Raven. Within the high stonewalls, Assassins practiced combat in the training ring, patrolled the walls and grounds, or educated themselves amongst the libraries of the Mentor. A beautiful garden was situated behind the intimidating tough face of the central stone rooms in which women happily lay about in leisure, grass and thriving plants all about the four-leveled space. In the center of the garden courtyard, situated in a fountain, was a statue of the Numenorian goddess Minerva of which stood still standing from the ancient days of the Empire of NUmeron. Inside the fortress library, scholars browsed the shelves, constantly maneuvering among them. The fortress housed all Assassins that resided within Ravenholdt, as well as the Mentor's private chamber at the very top of the fortress' highest tower. Watchtowers surrounded the walls, each with expert archers that observed the nearby valleys and central village for approaching danger.
