    The Red Keep is a castle built in the center of the city of Redstonia. It is currently being manned by Legio III Ignis of the Imperial Legion of Kythira. Redstonia is the only city in which the Legion has a military presence inside the city itself. Interestingly, the town watch of the city falls under the command of Legio III - giving the military theoretical control over civil law enforcement, although no issues have been reported so far.


    Originally the castle held another name and was the home of King Whazajottom during the Second Era, as it was a fortress inside of a fortress. Noticeably, during much of the Second Era the world's first and only roller coaster stood atop the castle, but this was removed by Kythira during the city's reconstruction in the Third Era due to severe safety hazards.

    The castle holds several rooms, including a large hall meant primarily for feasts. Under the fortress lies a complex network of tunnels and rooms, used by the Redstonian Kingdom for storage and training, as well as to demonstrate their technological advantage. Many tunnels remain undiscovered, whereas other tunnels have been blindly removed to make room for the Kythiran Metro System, whatever treasures may have been in the removed rooms were never documented.
