Fables of the Borderlands
The Keep Fortress
Description by Gary Gygax
This place has many tiers and is solidly built to withstand attack. The lowest level consists of a 15’ high front section. The round flanking towers are 60’ high, while the main building is 30’ high. All sections have battlements. The door is solid iron, Inside is a great hall, an armory for the cavalry, and several side chambers for small dinners or meetings. The cellars below have vast stores of provisions, quarters for a score of servants, a cistern, and a Dungeon area with four stout cells.
The Keep Fortress though built several decades ago, and with no extravagant means is still every bit the quality of high fantasy. The central entrance is tall and wide, with Men-at-Arms in plate to either side. Banners and Pendants fly from battlement and conical minarets respectively. The Fortress is easily the most defensible structure of the Keep, having many positions and advantages against siege, from thick walls, to angular arrow slits, and plenty of soldiers at the ready.
