A Geography of Haarth: Blood Gate
Now the series returns to gazette the geography of Daughter Of Blood (The Wall Of Night Book Three.) The new series will include updates of previous entries as well as new listings. Today’s entry is one of the new locales.
Blood Gate: main entrance into the Red Keep and a fortress in its own right
“The trickle’s begun, I see.” The officer of the watch began noting down their names. “We’ll have the flood once the Contest’s fully done.” Kalan thought his name might prove the stumbling block, but although … the officer studied his face and insignia, the Storm Spear device did not seem to register. The Blood Gate, like the Gate of Winds in Night’s chief stronghold, was a separate fortress with a distinct garrison, and the officer’s reaction suggested that unless specific orders arrived, events in the Keep proper, even the Honor Contest and duel, would remain of limited interest.
