The March of Aviaron's Peak is centered around the castle from which it derives its name, overlooking a pass that enters into Nightgold territory. The castle is built into the mountain itself, and boasts a vast network of tunnels that stretch for many miles, which local legend claims was built by dwarves. Many of the structures inside the tunnel system seem to be built to a smaller scale, supporting these legends, but the castle itself is ancient in design, and to a more typical scale.
Founded after the end of House Aviaron during the Silent War, House Acheron now rules Aviaron's Peak from the Glacial Fortress, where iron and steel flows as easily as gold and silver. Replaced the Aviarons that ended with the destruction of Aron Nightgold's line.
Description: Built upon the precipice of a snowy summit, the march of Aviaron's Peak has stood sentinel over the Eastern Approach into the Crimson Peaks for centuries and is amongst the oldest strongholds within the Compact. Best known as the Glacial Fortress for its curious architecture of a wintry white masonry and crystalline windows, local legend would have its castle, and a winding system of underground roadways rumored to exist beneath, be the construct of ancient dwarves.
