Castle Darmond is an ancient castle on top of the Mountain of Port Breigh. In recent times, House Donao has set up it's throne in the castle, although, in past ages many different houses have possessed this keep. House Donao is tolerant of all three religions and, in fact, has dedicated 3 towers in the castle to each faith.
Founded centuries ago, the House Donao is one of the largest in Vasten. Port Breigh has the distinction of never being conquered during the Nether War of the Second Age due in part to it's huge city walls and natural mountains surrounding the city.
The walls of Port Breigh were built by the Dwarf Baern Hammerstriker, who founded the Builders’ Guild and, with he Help of men in the Second Age, erected the walls in 2 weeks time. The walls may be protected by a spell cast by Baern, although no one knows how this could have been done.
It is known as the largest travel hub in the Realm due to it's expansive port. Most towns and cities have regular ship routes coming and going through Port Breigh.
