Beyond Bale Keep
Sybirton falls under the iron hand of Fort Goldstone’s present Autarch, Colonel Vladimir Burzinchsky, the appointed Lord of Foursquare. Castle Goldstone, of course, belongs to one Harold Goldstone, who spends most of his time in the Dozelmairian courts, seeking greater lands and holdings for his family. Harold inherited the Goldstone mantle when his brother Eltron disappeared 3 years ago on a patrol into East Tanglewood. Eltron is presumed dead. Neither his body, nor any of his patrol of 36 was found.
Captain Dimitri Xant, Hero of Bale Keep resides in Castle Goldstone.
In addition to the Goldstone banner, Harold flies his own flag above the fort, a white shield divided by a red cross. The upper left quadrant features four crouching lions representing the four great lords of Goldstone legend, Eltron (most recent and heralded lord, presumed dead), Buckland (brother of Eltron, diseased), Ferrin (Lord during the middle period) and Wayland (the first lord of Goldstone). The upper right is a golden sun, the symbol of Raciata, the family’s patron deity. The lower left is a pair of crossed swords (harking back to the formation of the line through the first battles of Dozelmair, ages ago), while the lower right is a Boar’s Head (Wayland’s personal symbol).
