Winterkeep was a ruin located on the southern tip of the Yal Tengri. East of Winterkeep were the Glittering Spires.

Description[edit | edit source]

On the surface, only rubble remained, but the extensive subterranean passageways and chambers remained mostly intact. The royal family and their servants retreated beneath the surface during winter storms; as a result these halls were comfortably furnished.[1]

To the Vil Adanrath, Winterkeep was known as "Iket Sotha".[2]

History[edit | edit source]

Winterkeep was built as a nobleman's estate, in the days of Raumathar. It later became a retreat for the royal family. After the fall of the empire, Winterkeep gradually fell to ruins.[1]

In 1374 DR, the gelugon Ultael enslaved several ice troll warbands and started to attempt to make a fiefdom for himself. He sent several warbands out to raid along the Golden Way.[citation needed]
