The Company of Light and Shadow
Oldstone Hall is the grandest building in Wheloon. Its façade is an impressive edifice of soot-darkened stone, intricately decorated with carved monsters: gargoyles, gremlins, jabbrawuks, satyrs, and wyverns. It was built in the style of early Cormyrean manor houses, of palatial size and almost a castle, suggesting old pride, old wealth, and old entitlement.
It’s surrounded by large paddock of lush, well-groomed grass, dotted with many big and old duskwood, oak, and shadowtop trees. This is, in turn, enclosed by high stone walls and a set of gates. Stone monsters on plinths also flanked the gates and rested on the walls.
The gates are warded against unauthorized visitors.Oldstone Hall is the home of Sarp Redbeard. Other privileged guests could stay there, such as the king’s messengers and War Wizards. Few others are allowed beyond the gates.
