Kintargo Keep is a part of the larger Castle Kintargo that dominates the Castle District of the city of Kintargo. The keep's five-storey spire juts from the north-western corner of the castle and serves as Kintargo's most notorious prison.
Solidly built, its central staircase connects five storeys of prison above ground as well as a near-forgotten dungeon level below. Each layer has over a dozen different cells to contain prisoners and the dungeon also includes four lightless oubliettes. The site is normally very well defended, including a detachment of Hellknights of the Order of the Rack led by Paralictor Kyrre Ekodyre who are accompanied by Hellknights raised from the grave as phantom armours.
In the forsaken dungeon, one final guardian, is a lich warpriest dedicated to Asmodeus, who was created in the early days of House Thrune. Barely remembered as a mere legend by most of the castle's inhabitants, this terrifying sentinel is now known only as The First Warden. He protects a single prisoner: the legendary rebel, Jackdaw, the founder of the Silver Ravens. Due to a strange quirk of city law, the dungeon level of the keep is one of the few places in the entire city that the Lord-Mayor of Kintargo has no right to go.
