peter [Trowheald Island]
Line 9: Line 9:
 It is bisected neatly by the Ipty Road. North of here lies the residential and small business part of Trowheald Island. It is a relatively affluent area patrolled regularly by the Trowheald'​s own soldiers. The region is somewhat genteel and the folk here, while [[Canal Society|Societors]] to the core, are generally considered to be better informed and more tolerant. A lot of this is due partly to the wealth of the area and partly to complacency to having a powerful and eminent family to the south. It is bisected neatly by the Ipty Road.

-South of the Ipty Road lies the edifice of [[Trowheald Castle]]. A wall divides the remainder of the island off and in the exact centre, north of the Castle gate is the [[Trowheald Monument]], a router-bit shaped sculpture in basalt. It is the stuff of legends but, as it has been explained earlier, it is simply an [[Attuned Wind]] statement to the joy of building. ​+South of the Ipty Road lies the edifice of [[Trowheald Castle]]. A wall divides the remainder of the island off and in the exact centre, north of the Castle gate is the [[Trowheald Monument]], a statue constructed out of some black stone. It is the stuff of legends but, as it has been explained earlier, it is simply an [[Attuned Wind]] statement to the joy of building. ​
  
 The Attuned Wind also built the Castle. It is more of a giant house than a true castle, yet it is built of basalt three feet thick, and like the Fort and the [[fenstre2#​the_clathe|Clathe]],​ was built to withstand invasion and the effects of time and weather. The Castle is roughly four hundred metres long north south and three hundred metres east west, however it is not a true rectangle. It has eight stories and several parapets and towers. In addition it has two floors underground,​ a cellar and a crypt. The crypt, oddly enough, can only be accessed by going to the first floor. The Attuned Wind also built the Castle.

 The Castle lies in the southeastern corner of the island. Across from it lie the barracks and parade areas of the Castle'​s employees and soldiery. There are also small wharves to the west and south. The soldiery of Trowheald Island is known as the Equitant Men, so called as the officers usually operate on horseback. The Castle lies in the southeastern corner of the island.

-The horses themselves are stabled near the barracks and no expense is spared as to their care. The Equitant Men are the de facto private army of the Trowheald family and are employed to patrol the island and keep the peace. As the island is considered a private domain the militia do not operate here.+The horses themselves are stabled near the barracks and no expense is spared as to their care.

 The island is named after Fenstre'​s pre-eminent sept, the Trowhealds. They were the first of the five septs to arrive from [[Bozlin]] and [[Orur]] and have remained the most important. The Castle and the island itself have been their property for nine millennia. All homes and businesses on Trowheald Island actually rent from the family. The island is named after Fenstre'​s pre-eminent sept, the Trowhealds.
