Whitehold

White Hold, also called Salt Town.

White hold is the name of an ancient castle built during the age of legend at the southernmost edge of indel. Its huge turrets rise defiantly from the rocky coastline and a massive dock sprawl in their shadow. The brown that thrives under the castle is referred to as salt town by the locals and is a mixture of the people of indel, and other groups from far off lands coming off the innumerable boats in the harber. 

The port of salt town is among the busiest in the world and travelers, traders and merchants are always making their way through the deep water harbor on one of the many ships that port there. A multitude of multicolored sails fill the harbor under the stark white towers of the castle on any given day.
