Geldeheim is the seat of Alegar II, King of Orbaal and valhakar of Clan Taareskeld. The castle is Orbaal's strongest fortification and sits on the south shore of the Geldesfjord, the most populous region of the kingdom. Geldeheim's rulers are warlike viking invaders from Ivinia who, despite conquering far northern H&acirn more than 50 years ago, remain vastly outnumbered by the oppressed indigenous Jarin folk.
The Geldeheim Castle article describes the settlement's history, government, religion, economics, and military forces. Includes a full description and color floor plans for the castle, along with color GM and player maps of the settlement. Brief descriptions are given for many local craftsmen and other locations in the town.
