The “Knights Keep” was one of the fortifications build and manned by the Knights of White River during the Orc Wars. It was one of the last fortifications to fall to the orc hordes before the charge of the Fairy Prince broke the back of the Orcish forces.
With the rise of the Wightlands, the ruins of the Knights Keep were left to the undead. Only recently did Baron Alistair Winterstone of Drakeford decide to reclaim the Keep. He sent to the Knights in Starhold and requested a contingent of knights to reclaim and hold the keep.
The [half-elves | half-elven]] knight Pieter volunteered to answer the call. Baron Wintersone was slain in the meantime by the machinations of Alek Grimbeard, the Mad Druid. His daughter, Ariana Winterstone, renewed her father’s orders once order was reestablished in Drakeford and Pieter and his knights set out to reclaim and hold the keep… which had, in the meantime, been claimed by the undead knight Eronald the Undying.
