An old military fort in the southern section of Oblast. Many pirate kings and raiders have used it as their base of operations over the years, but after King Nikolaj Baratov's coronation in 897 it underwent a massive renovation to make it into a more permanent center of power where the nation's councilors could meet and discuss new laws and policies.
A mixture of stone and wooden fortifications surround the perimeter of Baratov Keep. Inside there are half a dozen buildings, the largest of which serves as the political center of King Nikolaj Baratov's government. Three large barracks stand in the Keep's western edge along with an armory stocked with an assortment of weapons and magical items.
