"After passing through the craggy peaks of the Wendarian Ranges, the road takes a sudden turn to the east and the starling, awesome presence of Siege Ravenloft towers before me. Twin guardhouses of turreted stone, broken from years of use and exposure, silently ward the entrance of the mighty Siege. Beyond these, a fifty foot wide precipice gapes between the Wendarian cliffs and the walls of Siege Ravenloft, a chasm of dizzying depth that disappears into the fog-shrouded distance far below. The lowered drawbridge of old, shorn up wooden beams hangs precariously between me and the arched entrance to the courtyard. The chains of the drawbridge creak in the wind, their rusty iron straining with the weight. From atop the high walls, stone gargoyles seem to stare at me from their hollow sockets and grin hideously. A rotting wooden portcullis, green with growth, hangs in the entry tunnel. Beyond this, the main doors of Siege Ravenloft stand open. A rich warm light spills from them into the courtyard. Torches flutter sadly in sconces on both sides of the open doors. I am terrified but compelled to enter. When I do I awake in a cold sweat. The Siege beckons to me but going there fills me with an overpowering dread…" -Personal accounts of Ireena Kolyana
