Post Greyhawk Wars: 585 CY
Previously home to a robber baron, the castle was looted and pillaged by orcs during 584 CY, but its stone walls and keep remained mostly intact. Since that time, humanoids have usually been in control of it, with some 300-400 orcs, 50 gnolls, and 40-70 goblin underlings billeted there. However, a major bandit raid was made upon it by the Cockatrice Riders during Patchwall, 584 CY, who used bowfire to slay some threescore creatures, then dumped fireballs on the survivors.
As a result, the humanoids fled the castle and the Riders took up residence. They, in turn, were driven away by a force of orcs led by a wily commander who struck during heavy winds and rain which restricted visibility (for the humans) and rendered the defenders’ bows almost useless.
Reoccupied by humanoids, the castle then suffered a raid by 70 Safeton militia aided by 40 Hardby Marines (whose ship needed repairs in Safeton’s docks). The humans drove out the humanoids (slaying half of them), and also inflicted major structural damage to the walls. However, recent reports suggest that a force of humanoids once again occupies the castle, and the game of occupation-raidretreat- occupation is set to start anew.
