Carrion Crown: Kyle's
The castle of Vieland’s former count, the private but ingenious Alpon Caromarc, stands within the Shambling Swamp. It’s highest tower rising above the sagging tree line, the castle seems to be loathed by the violent thunderstorms that occasionally roll across the county, as many have witnessed it struck by lightning—sometimes multiple times during a single storm. Remarkably, the aged castle still stands and bears no mark from fire or lightning strike. When asked about the phenomenon, Caromarc seems unaware, suggesting that perhaps the wonder is a trick of malicious will-o’-wisps or swamp gas.
