Thygard Keep

More than a century ago Thygard Keep was built to keep watch over a small but dangerous portal to Tytherion located in a cavern deep within The Hagmarsh. While the garrison at the keep, led by Sir Keegan, kept evil at bay for some time, they eventually fell prey to the malicious influence of the portal itself. Gripped by madness, Sir Keegan murdered his own family and then the entire garrison of the keep and then died of his on wounds.

After these tragic events Thygard Keep was slowly but surely reclaimed by the Hagmarsh. The ruins eventually came to house the cult of Tiamat and the black dragon Skytherax in their attempt to re-open the portal while the discorporated spirit of Sir Keegan haunted the sepulchre where he died.

Just as the cult’s plans were about to come to fruition, Alister, Oris, Nobody and Balasaar discovered the keep, defeated its guardians, interrupted the ritual and sealed the portal to Tytherion for good.

It was in the desperate fight against Skytherax, in her dark lair beneath the keep, that the intrepid heroes discovered Wyrmbreaker. Alister was first to draw the spear and use it against Skytherax, but it has since passed to Oris who has begun to develop a bond with the weapon.
