It is a 6 hour walk away from Seredia and for centuries has been lost to Geneda.When it was discovered by the party it was overrun with zombies and had been under the control of the Scarlet Shadow. The deed turned up in Count Jerald’s hand and he hired a team to overtake the keep, which ran successfully.

What had been going on was that the bandits were terrorizing Seredia because the town was close to being defenseless.
