Brinewall is an abandoned settlement and castle (see Brinewall Castle) built during the early part of the Chelish expansion into Varisia (see Everwar). Situated in northwestern Varisia where the Steam River flows into the Bunyip Bay,[1] it was designed to encourage trade with, and fend off attacks from, raiders of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings.[2]

History

Construction on Brinewall Castle began in 4442 AR, but quickly ran into troubles. It was plagued by funding problems and building delays, and was not completed until 4469 AR.[3] The militia who patrolled Brinewall defended their keep remarkably until a still-unexplained occurrence in the mid-4680s. Everyone living and working at Brinewall disappeared without a trace, leaving the buildings themselves untouched. Plenty of blame was passed around, but no trace of the missing was ever found.[2]

Blame has mostly fallen on the Nolander barbarians, who were a constant menace to the settlement. Curiously however, the Nolanders themselves avoid the place, fearing it as cursed.[4]
