The Izan Fortress
The fortress lies atop a hill. It is quite obvious that the hill was originally only barely big enough to contain more than the keep itself. It has since then been artificially expanded, making the hill very steep some places.
The walls follow the edge of the hill. The fortress city spans a vast area, probably more than a mile across. The walls, though no longer maintained and starting to crumble, are still a majestic sight, standing more than 20 yards tall, and made in durable light grey granite. The guard towers and gates are a full two storeys higher. Both walls and towers are lined with battlements.
